He Canna Haud a Candle to Him

"He Canna Haud a Candle to Him"

I continue to be amused that others think I am SO, SO, organized! ("He cannnot be compared to another"). You can be me, too!

All it takes is a few minutes of research online, a visit to Staples, Office Max, and Walmart to get your act together.

In my project toolkit are these office supplies. Insertable Tabs, Slash pockets and Plastic Folders and "Sticky" Notes. I have the lightweight flexible folder seen above with archival quality (acid free) sheet holders already in place as you can see. I use the plastic folder to hold a "transcription in progress" sheet for where I left off instead of a research log for daily use.

I made a quick table in Microsoft Word for recording my progress. This way, I don't have to do this work every day. Think of it as an "at a glance" sheet.
