Organizing the Other Archives

Organizing my online archives was interrupted a bit by organizing my real-life archives.

Hanging file drawers

One drawer previously contained a pile of papers, folders, and envelopes. The other contained board game prototypes, some of which had write-ups and other documents. I won’t be a bit surprised if I need more than this, but I wanted to get a handle on how much more before I went buying more furniture. Or, perhaps, just throwing more stuff out.

The colored folders are there to solve a grouping problem. I have a couple of major themes (game design, martial arts, technology) but I found that grouping them confused me when I was trying find the proper place for other in alphabetical order. I didn’t want to lose the ability to find, say, all my game designs, so I started putting them in colored folders.
