So. I have this huge pile of paper templates in my studio that I've designed for my wooden (and now ceramic) figures. It is literally just a pile in a box. It takes forever to find something specific and I've even lost some. They are just small (under 6") pieces of scrap paper. But they are rather important.
This is just one example of how inefficient I've been over the years, just digging through there trying to find a specific template is a waste of precious time. Every time I've dug in there I swear I will organize it. So, now I'm gonna. Get organized = save time, yes? That is the plan. To run a business you have to stay organized. Well, you don't have to but I've heard a rumor that it helps. Being organized saves time and time is money, right?
How can I store and organize these? Obviously my shoe box (actually it is a wooden wine crate) method is not working. Maybe an accordion folder? A binder with plastic sleeves that I shove them in? Anything I'm not thinking of?
How does being organized save you time? How does being disorganized waste time for you?
