Need some feedback on file cabinet sizes people are using who are successfully implementing the GTD system. I don't know if Dave Allen distinguishes between letter and legal size file folders or file cabinets.
I am in the process of purchasing some file cabinets for my home based business. The 'Hirsh' product (available at Staples) seem to be among the best I've seen and Hirsh states that their product can sustain frequent daily use.
I was going to buy one 4-drawer and two 2-drawer cabinets making it a total of eight drawers.
I believe DA says he uses four file drawers for general reference material. Using this as a starting point, I was also going to use one drawer for Projects, one drawer for Someday/Maybe's and one drawer for Ticklers (with one of these ticklers holding account payables as part of my cash flow management)
I was going to use something like PowerMarks for labeling, and only use pocket folders so nothing can fall out of the sides.
But should I be using legal or letter size cabinets and folders?
Look forward to your responses.
