About this title


A guide to paper management teaches readers how to select the right work space, throw things out, make action and reference files, use a Rolodex, catalog names and numbers, and more. Reprint.

From Publishers Weekly:

Washington, D.C., organizing consultant Hemphill (The to Do Book) outlines a complete personal paper management system in this easy-to-read guide. "Clutter is postponed decisions," Hemphill states, and the key to her system is a sorting pile that generates flow to either the wastebasket, a reference file or an "action file." She describes specific tools (including X-Rack, calendars, peel-off file labels, Pendaflex hanging files) and strategies for paper management in the categories of bills and receipts, tax records, family documents, medical records, greeting cards, correspondence and photos. She tours the average household as well, covering the organization of newsletters, computer paper, books to read, slides, films, videotapes, travel papers, telephone messages and recipes. (Parents will appreciate the chapter on organizing children's paperwork: "Your children produce enough paper to fill a small art gallery within a week.")

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
