Why do I let it get to this point?
The stack of papers was threatening collapse so I had to force myself to sort and file. Every time I tell myself, “just put away the filing every month and it will be so much easier.” As you can see I have not convinced myself to follow through on that thought. Last time I was on top of my filing was probably four and a half years ago (pre-kids). Instead, I get around to it about twice a year.
