ok heres were i sound OCD. I have all mine in a lever arch file. each thing like band, photgrapher dj, venue, church , flowers gets its own section. ive gathered alot of info believe me. so when I book something or someone. they go into sub folder in each of these section and I keep all the quotes, emails, receipts for each subject in this. I also have taken photocopeis of all my booked things and keep it in separate folder just incase this one burns down or something :o0 :o0 :o0 Im sad i know but if i wasn't ocd about this it would look pretty much like h2b wardrobe :o0 :o0

no worries. don't be panicking at all, there is no need at this stage, as i said i try to keep myself organised about this otherwise i would lose everything, it sounds like im really obessed about it now that i read back on it. I should of phrased it better :o0 its just a lever arch file and some dividers but it does help just to keep everything in check and for when im trying to show people bits and bobs that i had my eye on. you don't essentially need one but its just we spend so much on everything else for the day that keeping your receipts etc in folder seems such a small thing to do keep it all together.

jeepers - I'm impressed stressybetty! I just have a box into which I throw everything! Most of the info is on my pc so really should make backups!

Only ever had an ideas folder - which was mostly cut-outs from magazines - i keep everything on my laptop which is divided and sub divided. i do however have a large envelope which contains smaller envelopes. Each thing i've booked gets it's own envelope with contract, receipt, contact details, amount paid, amount to be paid and when that money is due. x

thanks folks, I cant believe people are impressed at me being organised, H2b thinks im a right physco over it, but that only because he is not allowed go near it anymore, he brought it around to his mothers and showed them everything. talk about ruining the suprise.
