Thanks everyone for responses to yesterday’s ‘What should I draw‘. Some great ideas, which I will be perusing in great detail. Not too late to add more and be in with a chance of winning a calendar.

Today’s highly-useful diagram isn’t a new one, but you may not have seen it. It isn’t based on anyone I know, least of all me, and if it is me I’m not like that any more (except sometimes).

  1. Here in California we have a diversion in the flow for “Does it have my personal info on it and therefore must be shredded?” Sometimes I shred too quickly and the vital doc is gone forever. That is a good time for a cup of tea.

  2. There is a next stage. Line up in appropriate piles on desk around edge. Arrange waste paper baskets on floor around desk. At some point all piles will grow so high they topple over into strategically placed bins & can then be removed. Avalanche method of records management!

  3. I haven’t actually been in my sewing room for ages – I have been helping a friend with a project, was originally very part time, but had become full time +. But I am finishing tomorrow, so yes into the sewing room. Although if I am sewing into paper, which I do sometimes do, I usually use beautiful hand made papers.
