Well, it’s a bit later than we originally planned but Trisha (my virtual assistant) and I finally got it all done.
The new e-book is out – all 44 pages!!
Now I want to talk about my annual filing.
Sadly, I’m not even joking 🙂
I have a very lazy way of organising – I simply pile up the papers and when it annoys me, I file. Usually my filing threshold is about every 4 – 6 months.
However, I’ve been going more and more paperless so this time I could go for nearly a whole year.
This little memo is from 2011 and 30 Oct 2011 was the last time I filed til the day these photos were taken – 7 Sept 2012.
I have one metal basket where I put all paper. This is the folder with all my file-able papers.
As you can see, not a lot at all. My rule is that everything doesn’t have to be filed so I only file things I know I may reference in the future plus all Jhb Connect invoices and communication. Our city’s billing department has always been in a shambles so it’s best to keep everything.
My filing process is as follows:
- Make piles of paper for the different files.
- Label the piles as you go.
As you can see, my SheSpeaks folder also needed to be attended to.
- Punch and file
