LessMessMonday - Easy file access

As we become more and more computer dependent for our business and lives we also store more and more information in our "second brain" - the computer.

Well let me tell you that I have no idea what I would do if I didn't store my files in a somewhat organized way. With 5 blogs, one web design business, and several writing services and accounts I need to be at least a little organized. Unfortunately it is really easy to just store everything in "My documents" and then let them sit there until next time where you have to search and try to remember where you stored that important file.

I am far from the best organizer but i will give you an example of what it can look like; For RS Designs I have several folders pending on projects. For example; We always have some giveaways** going on so I need a folder for that, one for all the different packages which is sub categorized on clients. Then there are special folders for Word and Text documents, logos, finished templates and much more.

Take a look at what you save most on your computer and make one special folder for that. Like to collect PDF's? I store all my PDF's in one folder, very handy and I always know they are all in the same place. Whatever you store on your computer it can be easier to find if you make use of folders.

If I didn't have that I would probably go crazy and spend valuable time looking for files when I could be working.

If you do business from home it is essential that you try to be a little organized or you could easily lose clients and important information. And of course, you should always back up your folders!
