Reader Christine, author of the blog Compass and Coffee Spoons, has a terrific little suggestion for staying on top of paperwork. A traditional tickler file didn’t work for her, so she found a system that did. After learning about her process, I asked if she could write up a post for us explaining it. Thank you, Christine, for sharing your tip with us!
My office desk space/studio has become a hazardous zone. My mission in March is to find little ways to improve on the situation and create a system that helps me manage the receipts, school art, outgoing mail, family medical and admin papers, scrapbooking memorabilia, notes, magazine tear-outs.
I use the binder clip system but my clipped papers grew out of hand - definitely need to set aside some time weekly to clear out the papers in the binder clips!
