1. How do you organize files without hanging folders as D.A. suggests? I just can't envision this. For example how would you handle the following situation without hanging folders?: I currently keep a hanging file labeled "Travel" where I keep receipts and other information from trips I make for work. Within that hanging file, I keep manilla folders with the date and city of the trip I took or will soon take.

Without hanging folders, you could just label each folder "TRAVEL - date - location".

2. What types of "paper holding trays" do you find work best for you? On page 92, he says "The most functional trays are the side-facing letter or legal stackable kinds..." Does this mean something that keeps the papers perpendicular to your desk rather than parallel?

I use the side-facing letter for my projects and reading material. For my inbox, I use a plastic box. I throw everything into my inbox, even non-paper things. I had an old cell phone that I wanted to recycle, I thre that in there. I couldn't do that with a tray. It works for my needs.
