I use an A-Z paper filing system which has historically worked well for storing articles and other writing I've had published. However, more and more of it is now either published online, or I only have electronic copies e.g. pdfs. It's all a bit of a jumble and I'm looking for any suggestions on how to create a system whereby I could find any one at any time.
One of the reasons I seem to resist putting things in my "hard copy" A to Z system is that often I have something I want to keep, but don't really need it to refer to, so don't want to be looking at it every time I open the file drawer, and don't want my file drawers stuffed full of "stuff I wrote once, want to keep, and might one day refer to...just not now". Can anyone help?
