Paper filing woes:-(
Help! I need some advice.
Last winter, I read the book "File...Don't Pile" by Pat Dorff. I thought that sounded like a good method to take care of all the papers I want to keep and actually find again when I need them. So I typed up a list of Broad Categories for my reference files such as Homemaking, Food, Gardening, Wildlife, Health, Geneaology and other pertinent categories (17 in all). Then I sorted a bunch of papers into boxes labeled with my categories. The plan, according to the book, is to then break down the broad categories into smaller categories, i.e. Gardening into Vegetables, Fruits, Woodland, etc. There are still more to sort, but I would like to get started actually filing them.
Can anyone offer some motivational and/or efficiency tips and ideas? I'm just stuck and can't seem to get myself started on this. Seems like every paper I pick up, I can't decide what to do with it. On the surface, it seems like it would be so easy to just put them in the proper folders. What is wrong with me??? I think I need some 'baby steps" but can't come up with any :-(
