literally everything but the kitchen sink

I've been getting alerts on my phone for weeks now telling me that my storage is almost full.  I've handled it the way I do with most tech-related problems.  Totally ignore it.

But, last night it got so bad that it took five minutes to send a text and I could not even open any apps.  I just got a message that said "Error! No memory."

So, it was time to face the music.  Or, the 867 pictures on my phone.

I saved the ones worth saving, and deleted the ones that weren't.  Like the 23 nearly identical shots of the same flower.  

But I also came across this gem.  My sister and mom saw this guy at an intersection, and said he was actually playing the guitar while he waited at the red light.


If my car radio ever breaks, I'll just get a guitar.

I have the same problem. I'm terrible at deleting pictures and then I end up having no storage when I'm in the middle of trying to take a picture. Happy Friday!

My last phone upgrade I went with the higher gigabytes because I was so tired of getting that storage error. It's been so worth it. And why not carry a guitar along with everything else!

Do you have an android? I have google photos and every picture I take/screenshot/download automatically uploads (downloads?) to google photos. I still have to delete the photos so the phone doesn't slow down (I HATE deleting photos) but its so nice to know they're all saved somewhere else. There might be something similar with iphones.

Iphone or android? My android backs up everytime I take a pic and haven't had that error in a long time!

Hahaha! This is amazing! Reminds me of a family member (not naming any names haha!) who used to bring his guitar into the bathroom. Ha! I hate that dang full message. I get it constantly on my phone.

That really is too good. A real life (modern day?) troubadour.

Wow that is some serious multitasking! LOL I went through and cleaned out my phone this weekend and made sure most of my photos were on my cloud storage. I take too many!

Oh man the dreaded storage alert. That is the worse. I pay extra every month for larger storage to avoid that alert. So far it has been good. I have so many pictures on my phone and I so don't want to delete them. It would be like losing a part of me. haha pathetic i know.

I have the same phone issues... I'm always deleting apps and photos.
I can't play guitar OR ride a motorcycle so I find this man all-around impressive. Lol

Bahahaha that photo.

BUT - have you looked into Prime Photo? If you have Amazon prime, it will store ALL your pics for free! That's the only way I can ever remove pics from my device and save some storage haha ;)

Dara @ Not In Jersey said...

My phone does that too...and it's not the photos taking up the most space, it's the operating system of the phone itself! So annoying!

Ugh I run into that icloud alert ALL the time so I've moved everything to Dropbox for now
