Getting Out of the Mess in a Practical Way

.
Getting Out of the Mess -

I remember when I retire from the government service after working with the Department of Education for 25 years. I have come home with the great "rubbish" from my latest school assignment. They content bulk of my personal documents, manuals, references, office orders, among others. It is impractical or improper for me to leave there in school for nobody could benefit or make use of them.

I took two to three days to make them place to their rightful place. I segregate those documents for proper disposal for reuse and for shredding or burning. I keep the manuals and references for donation to the public library or to be given to my co-school head who doesn't have that ready references. Of course, I keep my personal appointment, service records, certificates of awards and recognition.

With such situations, I have come up with 4 simple practical things to do to make myself free from those "rubbish" I have had after those 25 faithful years of working with the government. They are to shred or burn them, to donate them, to resell them, and to keep those which could be retrieved anytime when I need them.

What about you? What's yours?

Deliana β€Ί When I retired I did almost the same. For what I didn't need I used a paper shredder. πŸ˜ƒ

Explorer2017 β€Ί @fortune orders, memorandum, bulletins are need to be kept for ready reference. Thus they should be kept for several years based on their importance.☹️
