The Perils of Organizing

January 12th, 2009 No comments

Over the weekend, my wife and I rearranged our front room.  After I started going back to work, I moved my computer from my basement office up to the front room.  The desk was too small (4 foot) and had not nearly enough storage space.  So part of the rearrangement included a bigger desk top and a second file cabinet (to double as a base for the desk.)  Once again, trying to get organized to save money ended up costing me sixty-five more dollars.  I’m hoping it will pay off in the long run, especially for tracking tax-related expenses, which I have failed at miserably so far in life.  But we are  little bit closer to being organized, and now I almost feel like we can tackle the front closet and clear it out, and, in the process, recover a couple hanging files filled with ten year old bills and receipts that we never looked at, but we happily blew money on.  Even though we don’t utilize the paper, we always seem to hoard it and then do one mass dump.  How do yo organize your files, and do you cull them continuously, or wait until they refuse to work anymore?
