Recently, Jennifer commented on my Idea File blog post about the notion of a "Invisible Hoarder."
I love that term. While I actually think Jennifer is very practical in her methodology, it made me realize this fact about myself: While I am a purger and hate hanging onto physical things at home, I am very much a hoarder at work with electronic documents. I have things saved 8 years back. And, the biggest issue is that I don't know how to easily find them. And, a lot of them are useless, thus adding to the clutter and complication in finding things.
Many times, Erin or Jim will ask me for a file or PowerPoint and I know I have it, but it can take me 10-15 minutes to locate it, wading through folders and files on my laptop.
Does anyone else qualify as an Invisible Hoarder? Anyone have any solutions for us IDs??
