Ok, go get your purse, handbag or briefcase…..go ahead…..I’ll wait……*game show music*…..Ok, got it? Now, OPEN it. Do you have papers floating around, hiding in corners or filling up your pocketbook? Most of us do. But, there is a simple thing you can do that will corral all those little tidbits into one place. We’ll call it the “Pocket Organizer On-The-Go”.
Use an expandable file such as the one above (from www.officedepot.com). Some categories to get you started:
- Reference Material
- Decorating: such as paint chips, fabric samples, pictures, measurements
- Business cards: of people you meet and to enter into your address book
- Business/Personal Expenses: receipts
- Future: maps, invitations or tickets to future events – these will be handy and ready to go when you get there!
- Shopping or To Do List
Keep this file in your hand bag or briefcase, and all those little papers will have a home. And you’ll have space for things you need, like your wallet. 😉
