Chapter 3. Where to Start > The Bookcases: Reduce, Refer, Rearrange

The Bookcases: Reduce, Refer, Rearrange

Begin with your bookcases. Plan to spend about one hour on this project. Do not spend more than two hours organizing at one session because it is quite tiring. You are going to be reducing, referring and rearranging all of the items on the shelves.

Touch every binder, book, file and newspaper. Look first to reduce by throwing out as much as possible. Dump old versions of manuals, procedures and catalogs. Toss all second, third or fourth copies of items and any information you have not used, forgot was there or is no longer valid. Recycle as much of the excess paper as you can.
