Clean: Empty desktop every morning

Somehow, the Mac desktop is my universal place to put files. It's a handy place to put them, but after a few days it's full of things. 80% of them I will never need again. But those 20% are kind of important.

Clean solves this problem by moving your files away from ~/Desktop to ~Documents/Desktop. It organizes them by day, week or month. So you get a fresh, empty desktop every day, and in case you lost something - don't worry, it's in your Documents folder.

The only problem is this: You'll still have to clean your Documents folder.

Why we love it: It gives you an empty desktop every morning without losing any of the files.
