I have been meaning to do this with my personal size organiser ever since Alison and I got back from the UK over a month ago.
So what does this involve? OK give yourself an hour or so to sit down at your desk or table.
Remove all the pages from your personal organiser. Separate the pages in to the different sections you already have.
Now go through each section and decide on the contents as follows:
- Keep: Pages you continue to need every day that isn't available elsewhere;
- Archive: Pages that can now be archived;
- Transfer: Pages that contain information you want to say transfer to your home organiser and that you don't need to carry with you all the time.
- Update: Pages that you need to update, refresh.
The end result is that I've slimmed down the number of pages sufficiently to be able to try out using a Compact size organiser, including the De-Villiers that I received/swapped from Anita and Amanda.
I also think that having less pages will be more effective in the long term. Having more relevant information to hand will definitely mean that 'less is more' and I will spend less time looking for a particular page with information on it!
I realise over time the number of pages will gradually increase again, but at least with this system of maintenance I will be able to rationalise things easier in future.
How many months or weeks of diary inserts do you carry at any one time?
