For anyone who is overwhelmed and drowning in paperwork, this book is a godsend. There really is a solution to the piles,bags and boxes of "misc." papers that accumulate.
It is especially good for people who have a problem deciding how/where to file information.
I tend to acquire lots of little notes to myself throughout the course of the day that fill my pockets, desktop & counters. This book helped me get them all organized so that the info. is at my fingertips when I need it.
This is a terrific book for anyone who saves a lot of information, but finds his/herself rummaging through heaps of "stuff" when they need one certain item.
