The pile cabinet - what do you think?
After reading through the discussion in the Elizabeth's paper thread, and following some links from the site Gloria posted, I am tempted to try out the "pile cabinet" system at
http://www.pilecabinet.com. I am a confirmed piler - the only thing files really work for are stuff that is just dead - like tax returns.
I googled it to see what's been written about it and found out the idea came from a favorite writer of mine. It's a small investment - $37, with a money back guarantee.
The idea is you can write a serial number on each piece of paper, add this to the index using the software, and both andd and retrieve in less than 30 seconds.
