premature optimization: rather than order and sort bills and receipts into separate folders, i just toss them into a big pile. why waste time on the INSERT when you SELECT from it so rarely?



Agreed -- my filing system became so much easier when I realized that reads were rare. Just bucket (well, box) by a suitable parameter, typically date, and you're done.
