Did you get your paper under control last week?
I’m still finding a few strays, and I still have to make some sense of a lot of it, but I got most of it gathered up into 3 piles: one not-so-urgent, one sort-of-urgent, and one to take to the accountant. I’ll keep dealing with it as I work my way through the Paper Clutter Challenge. I’m doing pretty good with it so far!
And that has led me to the next task I need to address, so here’s what we’re doing this week:
I need to go through and get rid of files I’ll never use, back up files I think are important, and reorganize the ones I’m keeping.
I’m hoping to get a new computer sometime soon, so this way I’ll have it all cleaned up and be ready to transfer everything over.
This can definitely pertain not just to personal files, but to all the quilting stuff, as well, and to your email and social media sites.
Do you have PDF pattern files you need to organize?
Do you need to clean up your blog reader?
Clean out your email inbox?
Subscribe or unsubscribe to some lists to make your email easier to handle?
Back up important things?
Clean out your photos, organize them, and back them up?
It’s also a good idea to schedule a regular time to do this from here on out. I’m planning to check my backups and clean out files and folders at least once a week from now on. Someday, a lost file or a crashed computer just might make me thankful I did!
That’s our task this week. I need fresh backups, and clean, organized folders. It’ll feel really good to have that taken care of, don’t you think?
