So it happened that this past weekend ended up being all about organizing my filing system. (Total honesty: I did almost none of the work here. Although I did do five loads of laundry.)
Main filing system: this bin of hanging file folders.
|Used to be jam-packed|
|File drawer: used to be full. of. papers.|
The non-filing files: piles of paper on the counter, under the cutting table in the sewing room, in the closet in the guest room, on my dresser. Well... you get the picture. I am a master at creating piles.
|Just one of many piles|
The haul: 4 bags of shredded documents. Full paper recycling bin out at the curb on garbage day. Empty file folders galore.
|My attempt at making shredding look sweet|
The payoff: I have actually filed new things this week! And it was easy. Amazing what a difference it makes to have labels, and space (lesson learned: never overfill a filing system).
Thanks, Sweetie! We should do our taxes next...
