Tip #1: Match Computer & Paper Files(Part of the 31 Days of Home Office Organizing Tips)
Matching computer & paper files can make your life easier… honest! Think about how much time is wasted, trying to remember, “where the holy blessed heck did I put that friggin document?!” Matching files will streamline what’s in your head, on the computer hard drive and the file cabinet.
It’s also essential to file everything in a way that makes sense to you (more on this later). So, for today, take a look at your paper & computer files, and streamline. And, since it’s the beginning of the year, this is a great time to sort & edit all those files too.
Bonus tip:Use one “archive” file for computer files. A search tool like Google Desktop can be your friend, and make sure you don’t need a degree in library sciences to find your presentation notes.
