a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I know this isn't zine related but I know a lot of you on here are snail mailers. I've got quite a bit and I just keep it in a box. I wanna figure out an efficient way to store it and keep it in some sort of order.
Does anyone have any cool tricks/tips on keeping mail organized?
Accordian file? It's the first thing that popped into my head..
are you talking about fresh mail that you need to reply to? or stacks of old mail? I have boxes and boxes of letters, and have finally realized i don't need to save EVERY SINGLE LETTER I GET, but I pretty much do. In no order at all.
However I keep all my "fresh" mail very organized. I can't find a picture of the desktop organizer I have, but it is similar to this: http://www.ergoindemand.com/adjustable-organizer-11-sections-steel-...
The key is to have those upright or vertical slots. Each time i get a letter i put it in the slot. the next letter goes the next slot over, and so on. that way i know what order i got which letter, and can respond in order. as i respond to a letter i remove it, toss it in a box, and move all the other ones up a spot. at a glance i can say, "Oh, i've got 7 or 8 letters there to respond to." Dorky, but has totally worked for me.
Fresh mail. I never ever thought of doing something like that. I think it's just the solution I'm looking for! Thanks
