Ack! I'm an Edgar too. I'm off to order that book from Amazon before I forget.
Your system sounds great.

I love organizing all the paper work. I too use a system very similar to this. It works and thats what matters!

Meredith

It looks great, you're on your way!! Do you FEEL more organized now???

Sandy

I'm having trouble finding some place to keep the file crate between uses. It looks out of place on my counter even though I bought it in a matching color. I really need to find a 'home' for it where it will be used, but not ruined by something being spilled on it. That would make me cry.

Kathy

Oh, thank you! Your explanation of how to make the system work for you gives me much needed inspiration for my own mess of papers.

Tina

Love this system! And now, thanks to you and this post, I know why our filing cabinets are useless to me. Big black hole with drawers! I LOVE the idea of the color coding, too! I get so bogged down with deciding what to do with paper clutter, I could literally stand paralyzed for 10 minutes wondering how/where to file 1 piece of paper! So frustrating. But this weekly filing system simplifies it so well.

One question.....I have a toddler into everything. So tonight I purchased a file box with a lid that snaps shut to keep him out of it and to prevent it getting all disorganized if he pushes it off the counter. Do you think a file box with a lid will still work or is it too Oos, Oom?

Thank you, thank you for having this blog. I stumbled upon it from By Sun and Candlelight. I too am working through ADD issues children & me while figuring out how to homeschool and be a mom (and be me). I just found the very best book on ADD it's called Scattered. It has totally helped me reconnect with my ADD daughter.

Hi :) I'm new to your blog via Dawn's and I am really enjoying reading your entries! I just ordered the above ADD book you were talking about from our local library because the definition of an OosOom sounds very much like me so I've got to read this *grin*. You have some really wonderful books listed on your sidebars to :)

I came across your page while searching for colored plastic file crates. I am an elementary teacher w/ADD and color coding is a life saver. I use it for my students for all subjects, as well as myself. It used to be easy to find the colored crates but now I am having trouble finding them. For you however, you can find purple file folders, and a wealth of other color co-ordinated organizers at www.callowayhouse.com and also www.reallygoodstuff.com. I look forward to reading more of your site and checking out some of the ADD books mentioned. Happy organizing!

I would like to know where may I find inexpensive file crates? I grabbed one from a store going out of business before and now the cheapest crates I can find is around $6.99. Websites with low prices includes high shipping costs to ship these bulky crates which kills the deal. I was wondering where most of you get them at a good deal. Thanks for any input.

Thank you, I enjoy reading your page. I was wondering if anyone know where I can buy inexpensive file crates at? I got one at a store that was going out of business before but the cheapest one I can find now is $6.99 at a store. I came across slightly better prices at different websites but the high shipping costs to ship the bulky crates kills the deal. I was wondering if anyone knows somewhere to buy these crates at a good price or where to look.
Thank you.
