One of my pet peeves is trying to retrieve a sheet of paper from an overstuffed-to-the-max file drawer. That’s why I weed out my filing system on a daily basis.
I simply choose just 5 file folders a day and spend a few seconds flipping through each. Papers that are outdated and/or I no longer need, are immediately recycled (papers containing any personal information are shredded first.)
This takes me all of 2 minutes to accomplish and it ensures that the filing system is truly being maintained for maximum organization. It also helps me avoid hours of work at one time. Give it a try. Your filing cabinet will always be HAPPY and you will too!
