PA PACKATHON, ARCHIVES EDITION

I've posted before about my no-filing/archive mgmt system. Today it is fulfilled.

TBTG all 11 archive boxes (circa 1982 - 2000+) were accurately labeled, so next steps were to place a tray table for further re-labeling (and water!), and start confirming/purging contents.

In gathering supplies to do this, I found the missing pantry and file cabinet! :-) (And I found more leaf bags upstairs, yay!)

After the first energy-burst: Three of 11 boxes now = recycle. One = keep, of ofc supplies/communication planners. One = keep, mixed files: fph; church strat plan; homeschooling org; more. One = all LL journals I'd been missing that failed to surface the last time my archived professional library was transported.

One Goodwill box started.

There's room in all of the above for more in their category. Apparently now my mind organizes by category, not date or organization, for what is probably my last career.

Five of the 11 boxes are left to explore/sort/purge. Based on how much of the first six I explored are being kept, I'll meet the day's goal.
