I have been updating my filing systems over the last few days. After LOAD and Garden a Day, this has become known as PCAD (Paper Clutter A Day LOL)
A couple of years ago I did Aby Garvery’s Paper Clutter course on her website www.simplify101.com. I reorganised and labelled and filed and the paper clutter now looks great! But it needed a bit of an update and tweaking. One of the things I realised was that I don’t ever go back to old magazines! I had boxes of photography, craft, and family history magazines. Well I am afraid they have all been tossed. From now on if I buy a magazine, once it has been read it is going in the recycling bin! I might rip out the odd article, but even that file is not looked at much.
When we sorted out the loft back in November, I threw away whole boxes full of old school books! I had kept nearly every one I had ever written in! Now I have a large bin half full with a few English books, topic books, and early ‘news’ books. Plus a file of essays I wrote when I did my degree at Sussex University 10 years ago:
Picture is of the putting up of the Christmas decorations. What about those arms!!!
All my drawings look like I traced them. Remember tracing paper? Either that or I never sharpened a pencil!
Essays from 4 years of studying neuroscience at Sussex University. I can’t understand many of them now!
