Tuesday Tip :: Paperwork


I’m not a big fan of papers. I’d much rather have it electronic. It’s easier to store and find and takes up much less space.

But, the reality of life is that paperwork exists. It’s all about how you handle it.

I’ve just redone my office and am loving it. I have scanned all of my paperwork, but some of it I need in the paper form. For those, I have brand new drawers to stack them. I don’t need to have them filed, because if I need one page I’m going to need multiple. So don’t need to bother filing them.

I’m re-decorating to! Adding some more color. Rearrainging books. Making this place far more homey.

When this is finished, I’ll share it because I’m finally becoming happy with my office. I finally figured that I am in here often enough that I can afford to take some time out of my day to make it comfortable.

How do you do your paperwork? What is your way to keep track of all the paper that accumulates over time?

    I am a paper person. I am also a packrat. I have a really hard time letting go of any kind of paperwork because I might need it, or it has some special meaning, or whatever other reason I can come up with at the moment. I am working on getting better, and can keep most of my personal paperwork under control, but what do I do with all of that business stuff??? I don’t have a good studio management software, so all my client files are on paper, and I keep everything. I have all of my client files from my very first Senior Portrait client nearly 5 years ago… And when was the last time you think I needed to reference anything in that file? Probably the day I delivered her order to her. I’ve got a lot of work to do!
