Filing guilt

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!

You're so funny. Everybody has a system that works for them and it seems like yours is working. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." ;-)

Thank you.

Thank you.

I am NOT alone. Not!! Not alone!!

(can you tell I have boxes of papers that need to be filed and not one but TWO filing cabinets just begging me to use them? For something besides photo storage, that is?)
