Working with her Living Peace Organizer, Allison identified which files in her system were actively being used, which were still necessary for archive records, and eliminated outdated or unused materials. Active files were setup in a polished new categorized filing system and placed in her new lateral file, and archive files were boxed up for storage in her nearby garage.
A desktop vertical filing system was developed to house her active task and project papers to keep them immediately at hand.
In consultation with her organizer, Allison chose to purchase a new desk, lateral file, and new curtains for her office space all of which help to make her space feel more beautiful and polished, which increased her sense of well-being and peace in the space.
Small collections of commonly used office supplies were set up in her new desk drawers, and all overstock or less frequently used supplies were sorted and organized into a nearby closet on well-labeled shelves to allow for all members of the family to find what they needed easily.
Finally, Allison worked with her organizer to set up an electronic filing system that mirrored her hard-copy paper system and to develop an email system that allowed her to manage the flow of electronic information into her life and to store the information that she might need to reference for current or future projects.
After completing the work in Allison’s home office, she chose to continue working with her organizer to develop better systems throughout her home including her kitchen, closets, bedroom, and garage.
