File documents correctly as soon as you get them. I am currently looking for something that I need – it is not essential, but somewhat important. I can’t find it. Since I also cannot imagine I threw it away, I am now going through ten years of documents one sheet at a time. Don’t let that happen to you.

At least I can take this opportunity and throw away a lot of the stuff that I really do not need anymore (phone bills from 2002, for example).
