Tuesday: Tech Tips

So today is Wednesday, I know. But I was a little under the weather yesterday. So you get Tuesdays on Wednesday!

So Today's Tech Tip is on making categories for Memory Manager.

I have been struggling with not making categories based on years. I know I didn't have to but I couldn't seem to wrap my head around the year thing. But at Saturdays workshop I was able to finally get all my categories and folders worked out. So I am going to share what I came up with that works for me. Of course your life is different but maybe this will help you to set it up.

So Here is a screenshot of how my folders are named  and organized...


With Holidays I named the folders with the month of the holiday so that they are listed in order. The kids are named with letters in front so that they are listed in order too. And these are general categories and then when I am in the folder I can then click on the year below to see the category in years. I hope this helps!
