Initial Description
This is a simple script to go into your downloads directory ( mac ). Move everything to a .YYYY-MM-DD folder. Thus you Downloads directory gets cleaned up and anything that was there has been placed into a hidden folder for finding later.

My Downloads folder is just always full of things but I don't want to blast it empty. Re-getting a file from some website is sometimes hard to remember. So I move everything to a backup and start again.
