Are you sensible? I think I am (of course) but I suspect there are some who would disagree with that. My genealogy research documents and notes are starting to take over my desk space and after months of contemplation I think I've come up with a system to organize them but it will require a file cabinet.
So this is the "sensible" part -- rather than buy a new one, there is a two-drawer one up in my studio which would work
but it's full of pattern design notes and shop newsletters and quilt teaching handouts, etc. I've been through all these papers a couple times since I closed the shop but not since I quit teaching so it makes sense to do it again. It's only one and a half drawers full so "how long will it take?"
dealing with this myself, don't you think?
