Go digital on as much stuff as you can.
Those notes and past bookings??? It's time to put them onto the PC.
I have found that I often jot down notes about my magic, then later I have no clue what they are about. So I started just using the Notepad program on my laptop to jot down notes...that way I can save them under any category that I want.
The filing system that is automatically built into a PC is invaluable for this type of stuff.
For instance, I am working on a kids show, and I have a folder on my desktop of my laptop that says "Magic."
In it, there is another folder titled "Kids Show."
In it, there is everything that I have been working on for the kids show. I have my script, the effects that I will be using, and a list of things that I still need to purchase. I also made a "Packing List" of all the things that I would always need to bring with me for the show that I'm planning.
Because it's all on the PC, it's incredibly easy to change/remove/add different things if need be. Once I get the show done and start trying to market it, I'll have a folder with my bookings and such in there as well.
For my magic books and instructions and such, I keep the books on a bookshelf with other books, and all of the instructions that are just sheets of paper are all in a storage bin under my bed. The DVDs are all on the shelf with my DVDs, on their own shelf of course.
I like this idea..................
