Finding the files you are looking for without combing through hundreds of directories is a true time-saver and an easy productivity move.
I try to keep my files and directories in order, named and organized neatly. I don’t have stale files at the base of my home directory. I have separate directories for my projects, my company stuff, and the work I do for my clients.
~/Downloads directory is always a colossal mess.
Since I cannot find the time to go through it and clean stuff up, I wrote a script that sweeps the problem under the rug.
This script will take each file in your
~/Downloads directory and move it to an archive directory named
MM are the year and month of the file’s modified at timestamp (which is usually when the file was downloaded). It will create the
archive directory and subdirectories as needed.
