From a GTD view point--please tell me the best practice, or assist with pros and cons of filing the following so they are retrievable quickly and like-items can be added quickly, and when needed, all related items are readily found so that none are forgotten. Should these be put in the big A to Z file with everythng else? Or should FINANCIAL and PERSONAL maybe have their own drawers or sections? Then, once that is decided, how should they be filed? Let's say you have statements from several credit cards--Option 1:Purely alphabetical by name of company (e.g. Eddie Bauer, Home Depot, Money-One). Option 2: By double heading and alphabetical within: Credit Cards: Eddie Bauer, Credit Cards: Home Depot, Credit Cards: Money-One) or Option Three:a triple heading Financial: Credit Cards: Eddie Bauer? Second, very important personal papers such as birth certificates,copies of wills, passports, transcripts, professional certificates for various family members--by name of person, the item? I fear putting these in A to Z along with such things as Airlines, Computers we own, Computers we want, Laws effecting the business I work in, articles on Motion sickness etc. down to Zoos( I want to keep it simple and A to Z is thus far a real blessing, but my memory is really poor and i might forget the category or its "siblings".
