Questioning What Paper You Need To Save

June 27, 2014

Filing systems are great, but we often see lots of paper in over-stuffed drawers that have not been opened in years!  How often do you reallygo back into your file cabinet to retrieve a document that you saved? Studies suggest that only about 20% of the papers that you file will ever see the light of day again.

Before you file that piece of paper, be sure to think about whether you will really need it in the future. If it is for a current project, taxes, investments or legal purposes, then the answer is YES.

Otherwise, ask yourself these questions before your file:

  • Will I remember that I filed it?
  • Will I remember how I filed it?
  • Could the information be obtained more quickly via a Google search?
  • Could the information be obtained more quickly via a search of my computer files, Evernote, or other cloud based service?

Hopefully these questions will guide you to your decision.

Happy filing,

Overwhelmed and don't know where to start?
