Day 20: Create A Binder For Manuals
Have you purchased an item, like say, a lawn mower – and promptly lost the owner’s manual? Well, this tip will help you keep up with your manuals.
Here’s what you will need: A large three-ring binder and a hole punch.
When you buy an item and it comes with an owner’s manual, simply punch three holes near the spine of the manual and put it into the binder. Whenever you need the manual, simply flip through your binder – and bingo – there’s your manual.
Looking for a more ‘high-tech’ version of this tip? Create a folder on your computer and label it “Manuals”. Then, go online and download PDF versions of all of your manuals – and put the PDF files into that folder.
If the item you purchased came with warranty, slip that information into the binder as well.
(Be sure to go through the binder, every so often, and get rid of manuals you no longer need. Remember, the point here is to make life less cluttered, not more so.)
