Why are the purple resource labels optional?
Before creating Resource folders, consider that more current information on most subjects can often be obtained very quickly on the internet or by a phone call. For example, rather than save travel brochures you can always browse online or call a travel agent to get the most up-to-date travel information when the time comes to plan your trip. If there is an article you wish to read, consider placing it into an Active file instead of a Resource file. If you don't end up reading it, there will be plenty more current information on the same subject available to you at a later time. You may discard the unread article or simply file it into a month folder in case you decide to read it within the next two years. Recipes may be kept in a binder in the kitchen and magazines are best kept near the places where you enjoy reading.
