Which file?

Hello 43Folders community and Merlin.

I have been reading, and reaping from GTD for the past 4 months and can safely say I am in it for keeps, and what fun it is! I now look forward to my bus journey home through South London and the nightly review, moving my little post-its from one page to another. Definately low-tech but easy-going for this wanabee geek.

Anyway, I have just started on the filing system and am a bit stuck. A scenario: Lucky me I have a few software dev projects on the go and manage the finance as well as the dev apes. I have an alphebetical filing system so where does the invoice go? I for invoice; a finance sub-folder within the project folder? Or maybe in the developer's agency folder?

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Not an exact quote, but I know it's in there somewhere. Hmm... That sounds a lot like how people reference the Bible.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
