Organizing Tips from the Experts - IAAP (International Association of Administrative Professionals)
Hello All! Smead attended IAAP's event in Montreal last weekend. What a great group - WITH great organizing ideas. Check out their organizing tips posted on our Facebook page!
Melissa Popadynec - Take time out each week to sort out all paperwork that comes across your desk - toss out/shred anything that has been dealt with and you no longer keep. File anything that needs filing and delegate other paperwork if it doesn't belong in your files.
Gayle Christie - Label, label, label. Get a good labeling machine and go label crazy. It saves time when on the hunt for a certain file, paper or item.
In Order To - Organize - Delegating to my kids the tasks I do not have time to do! They love to shred, so that is one of the weekly chores they take care of for me. Yes, they earn computer time for it but it's a win win for all of us!
Cindy R Moore - My organizing tip is to stay on top of things. Organize as you go so that you don't end up with a mountain of paperwork to deal with.
Ellen Byers - I like to keep things in files and color code when possible
Phyllis Ford - My organizing tip is to have a good paper shredder. About 1 time a year, I go thru the fiiing cabinet from a to z shredding anything more than a year old.
Beth Badder Sindt - As a professor, I teach several different classes. If I need to hand back graded papers, it works to have a different color of file folder for each class. When I'm in a hurry, I can easily spot the folder I need for that particular class.
What's your favorite organizing tip?
"Don't agonize. Organize." - Florynce Kennedy
Magazines are my weakness and I need to stay on top of the latest trends. I have so many that I can't get through them all so I have made an old LP magazine holder for the wall..you need to place a towel under and over the LP, use a hot iron w/no steam and quickly "iron" over the towel for a few seconds and then quickly roll the bottom half of the LP up over a rolling pin and let cool.
