Kids' school work needs to be filed but easily retrieved by them and by me, but I don't want kids in in my personal or business files, so theirs are in a separate box. Using labels with their names, subject and month or marking period has worked best. But, any better ideas?
Also, other family members have the bad habit of leaving various papers of great importance about the house and car. When they encumber me, I
put them in folders, scribbling in pencil their initials , the general topic (e.g. Sewing Club, Passport) and date I found them , followed with a question mark. Then I put them in a stack on the persons' desk to whom I think they belong. Any thoughts on this approach?
Each family member has a "mail box" or "in box" for incoming mail and messages. What can we so about people who look at their stuff and then just put it back in the in box?
