One of my friends was commenting that she'd lost a vital piece of paper and it got us talking about funny filing systems. She had a colleague who had a very simple system. He had 2 piles of filing - one marked 'under 6 months old', the other 'over 6 months old'. Every 6 months he moved the older pile into the bin and the newer pile then became the 'older' pile. It reminded me that I had a tray marked 'unofficially lost pending a trip to the bin'. Another great system involved having 3 piles - one marked 'pending', another marked 'file of stuff that can go into a file' and another marked 'not sure'. Whatever system you use make sure it has an element of humour about it, and it works for you!
