One of the monkeys on my housekeeping back is filing. For some reason I am in charge of all the paper that comes in here and I don't deal well with it. Oh I get the bills paid (most of them are set up so I don't actually have to do anything to accomplish that) but still there is so much paper. For the past 2 years or so my filing system has been to toss everything into a cardboard file storage box. (I do keep a separate file for things I'll need for the tax man.) My main file box is overflowing now and I have been feeling really bad that it's not organized. We even have a filing cabinet and a good supply of file folders waiting to be filled!
Well, today I needed to find something in that box. I was really dreading it; I could see the hours slip away as I searched for this piece of paper. But! It only took me about 2 minutes of sifting through the box to find it.
My laziness is vindicated! My non-filing system works!
