Time spent at home has been a perfect opportunity to get digitally organised.
From sorting through the folders in my three email accounts, to unsubscribing to the ones that I no longer need; did I ever? Junk emails just keep coming in and I am continually deleting or moving to spam. Hopefully this will be significantly reduced from now on.
My next task was to reduce the paperwork, it’s been a busy time of scanning, and saving to folders named appropriately, in order that I can find them when needed. I’ve been scanning receipts, in date order for business purpose, letters that I need to keep for various reasons about health, home and banking.
I have a separate folder for all of my mums letters, health documents and banking.
I’ve been scanning all the business cards that are relevant and discarding any that are no longer even in business (I’ve had them so long!), my physical folder of business cards was becoming overwhelmed from some of the different breakfast and network meetings I had attended over the last year.
Getting carried away, I am now starting a folder of favourite recipes and scanning new ones that look good to try.
There are scannable apps available, some of them are free; for example Evernote, Adobe or One Note and all can be saved on your phone for handy access.
This could go on for some time, as I gather up warranties, guaranties, manuals, insurance policies, coupons, take away menus and lovingly saved birthday cards….. yikes…
Look forward to see you all soon, on the other side of ‘lockdown’.
