Helpful tips for when you’re out and about. For example, when shopping, many time people rush through the line to pay and bag it, and later…., where did that receipt go?….and other things may get forgot or lost or misplaced.
Staying organized can help save anxiety later when pressured to have information instantly. This can also be applied to Postal and letter deliveries that many times get forgotten or lost or misplaced, especially when you need them days, weeks, or months later.
How? Some tips are obvious, like pointing out the problem and letting you come up with your own way of organizing these situations. The point is to identify it is important and to maintain continued habits and staying organized in storage and placement of the items, records, and documents. You may see the results of this organization years later.
Some ways could be storing the documents in a specific box, or container that is easy to access, with labels or with ordered order. Also, writing the dates on the actual items can help remember when looking for something many days later. Using envelopes with written info on the outside can help store receipts and keep them in different envelopes for different categories.
Patience is, of course, not welcome when shopping, although very needed. Patience and maintaining good order and good habits of where you put the receipts, money, change, and items can save panic, anxiety, and loss when the dust settles.
Even with these procedures in place, things go missing. If you have good order and good habits and observe the history of the past times something went missing or got “mistakenly thrown out”, “moved, “taken”,….you will know the difference between being lost or being thefted.
Obviously, when something can’t be found, it is a time of uncertainty, possible speculation, and hopeful not accusation, although that can happen. When you are orderly over your part, it minimizes the doubt and uncertainty….., therefore minimizing the anxiety, panic, stress, and false accusations. Hopefully bringing an accurate conclusion and stable way forward, even when it can’t be found.
