I have 2 Maybe someday folders -- one physical (a plastic folder) and one electronic (just a M/S folder aliased on my desktop (the source folder is in the tickler file folder).
Both are out of control
There's 62 items in the Electronic M/S folder and the physical folder has odd hodge podge of shoes I might by, a restaurant to go to that I can't afford, trinkets I thought would be cool in an advertisement....
I've done a good job of finding to emerging categories "material to acquire" and "experiences to do" (skydiving, visit aquarium, etc.).
But it's devolved into my "junk bin", holding a bunch of random stuff. It's stuck when I can't afford or probabl don't even NEED many of the items in it. I guess I should chuck most the stuff, but don't want to risk wantign it or having it reclutter my mind having deleted it from M/S list
Technically I also have a 3rd M/S list, my amazon.com wishlist/account. I throw in thousands of dollars worth of merhandise into into my wishlist account and use it for M/S . This is actually a great idea and works b/c

you can actually buy it right from the amazon "M/S" list.
However the lists are just out of control because I rarely purchase or can afford to purchase some of the items on the lists.
Distinguishing junk from possible "to buy" or "to do" from definite "to buy" to do.
Plus, hows the workflow work? Say I find a camp I want to do from my M/S, a watch I want to get, and an aquarium to visit.
Would that go
Call camp re info
@Material to buy
Just feel snagged with M/S and don't want to use it as a junk holder.
One solution is having a higher threshold and scrutinizing entries to the folder(s) more carefully, but then they might be on my mind... which is a nono.
I'm very intelligent and have a high IQ, but sometimes I'm not the most "skilled thinker". One pattern I've noticed I have is I often throw out something right when I need it or am about to act on it the next day!! GREAT!! So it's difficult for me to determine is something is really junk or if I'm just fed up with not being able to move forward on it (a purchase, a project, a task, etc.) Oh boy!
