  • Physical items to defer?

    What do you do when you have 3 dimensional physical items that are either needed in the future or that the decision on will be deferred?

    They can't fit into the tickler file as they are things not papers.

    A current example: I have some sample ear tags that I will need for a small ruminant seminar we are hosting in July. I don't want to lose them yet I really don't need them sitting on my desk until then. They are small enough that they can easily get buried or lost under papers yet they would puncture holes in the folders if I stuffed them into the ticker file.

    I would put them someplace safe, then put a note in your tickler file to remind you where they are. Or if the seminar is on your calendar you can put the reminder there and bypass the tickler.

      I was missing the note to tell me where I put them. I've had way to many things put "someplace safe" and then when I need it again I either can't find it at all, or I ransack the place searching everywhere that I might have stashed it.

      Thanks!

        Just remember: if you happen to move the item from one safe place to another, change the note!
