Oh good, everyone loves filing! Everyone reaaaaally loves easy filing! This book is certainly easy to follow, since there is so little mention of technology. Just stick your papers in folders and you’re good to go! To be fair, it does talk about fire proof boxes and an indexing system for easy retrieval. Not everyone is blessed with a librarian’s cataloging brain. (Should I file separately under auto insurance and health insurance or together under insurance, auto and insurance, health? Ok, it’s a blessing and a curse.)
As usual, this book is just old. These days, a home filing system has to acknowledge scanning, shredding, software options, apps, and uber-heightened security against identity theft. This 20-year-old book isn’t good enough.
