Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
So often I see requests for instruction manuals on this forum, many now not available. Firstly, when you buy anything more complicated than a pencil with an attached eraser, insist that the dealer supply you with the instruction sheet or books and do not leave the shop without it! Check the packaging to make sure that your books are there.
This is not to show you how good I am but rather to let you know that if I can do it so can you, and probably even better. In many cases it is unfortunately probably too late, but at least you can start now.
Get a big ring binder of lever arch file, preferably three or four ring and about 20 plastic fileable plastic pouches. Number them from number 1 from the third one onwards, using the first two for you index pages.
Any instruction books or literature that you accumulate, attach the proof of purchase documents in it and place them in a pouch, number the booklet the same number as the pouch you put it in (you can put several booklets in each pouch) and make up an index listing the make, description, date of purchase, waranty period, price and the number of the pouch the book is filed in - computerise the index if you like. This makes it easy to find the booklet later and it is more difficult to mislay a large file cover than a small instruction book. (When you get multilanguage books, cut out the languages that do not apply to you to reduce the paper you collect,)
(I have the documentation for every appliance etc in this house, and as I said, if I can do it so can you.)
