A is for… Archives
“Handwritten documents and notes have been passed down through centuries to permanently record some of histories most important events – not just consigned to the virtual trash bin.” National Stationery Week
Anita – I have many files saved on my computer full of hundreds of documents but I have just as many archived on my shelves in magazine boxes, lever-arch folders and box files. I have had a blue theme going for many years but I am currently moving over to flowery, deep purple.
Jo – I hate filing cabinets with hanging files. I tend to have lever arch files for things like invoices and slim plastic box files for old manuscripts. I keep them in my second best stationery cupboard. I keep things far too long, but occasionally have a clear out only to regret it the next week. I do have some manuscripts that were written on an Amstrad word processor before PCs existed. Can’t bear to read them. Can’t bear to throw them away.
