"The key is to find the particular system that will
work for you."
clients ask for help with filing, most often we work to tune up the
existing system. After all, it's a system you created and are familiar
with. I'm a minimalist at heart; why buy something new if it's not
needed? However, sometimes it's worth a very modest investment to start
fresh, with an efficient, colorful, well-thought-out system. Clients
often report that the clarity and the color give real motivation to
tackle the the dreaded chore of filing! I stock
basic manila folders and hanging files
for you; they are useful to expand existing systems, and to use with
some of the great systems shown below:
Filing System is
straightforward, in use for many years, fine-tuned and
over time. I have set this system up with a number of my clients, and
others have set it up themselves; it's easy to implement. The Container
Store has been selling this system for years, and Australian organizer
Peter Walsh endorsed it on the Oprah Show. It's also quite
economical, using standard file folders. A Small Business / Home
Business system is available to build on the home system.
FreedomFiler is another good-looking setup that suits many
it's "self-purging system. Look for the ready-made, ready-to-go system
or the more economical kit that uses standard file folders.
Angies's List is a
service we feel
good recommending. It has helped us sort through the reputations of
many different service providers (now including health care providers).
Several years ago we had tea with Angie and her husband when
visited locally. She is a very cheerful and dynamic woman who had an
idea for fulfilling an unmet need. Over the years her idea has grown
into a national directory for finding the best contractors and service
providers throughout San Diego and the rest of the country. We applaud
her work and recommend checking "the list" when you are in doubt about
whom to hire.
your printed photos and old slides is a wonderful way to preserve and
organize your memories and to de-clutter your space. I can
sort your photos to scan yourself or to send to ScanDigital,
perhaps the best, easiest, and most secure service available (they can
even digitize your old home movies).
