Portable inbox acquired

I finally have a set of Lightahead® LA-7550 clear document snap button color document folders, which I’ll use for my inbox in a few places:

  • Backpack: Coworking or traveling.
  • Suitcase: Traveling, papers to shred.
  • Car

Following GTD methodology, these folders will keep loose papers in one place when I’m away from my home office. When I return, I dump them all into the inbox on my desk.

When I’m on a trip, I scan receipts with my iPhone 6 into Scanner Pro, and those receipts can be shred safely. To keep the edges clear, I’ll label one of the folders accordingly.

Remember: If you don’t have an inbox, everything is your inbox!

  1. I was at the doctor’s office yesterday, and while standing in line waiting to check out, I noticed that the guy ahead of me had exactly the same folder! He shoved all of his wife’s (who was the one with the appointment) clinic paperwork in there after they checked out. I thought, “Man, I gotta get me one of those!”

    Your post seems like the universe’s reminder for me to actually get it.

  2. Reblogged this on Mad About the Dogs and commented:

    It’s an odd fact of modern life – even with all the technological doodads and whatchamacallits we surround ourselves with – that the amount of paperwork we must deal with on a daily basis seems to be exponentially larger than that generated a mere generation ago.

    In any case, that sad observation aside, I must get these folders.
