I look to the original filing system that the vast majority of people first learned: The phone book.

The subject of sort order comes up from time to time and there is always someone who insists that their unconventional sorting method is the best. I am always reminded of my best bud at the time owned an environmental services firm. He got a new girlfriend who decided to come into the office to help out and not being able to understand why everything was sorted by the names of the company/clients, unilaterally decided to re-file everything alphabetically by the first names on the contact person at that company, so that Adele X who worked at Company ZZZ Recycling Inc was filed near the begining rather than at the very end. Large companies that had dozens of contacts had their corporate files split up into as many contacts. Just imagine the nightmare of finding a single document in a company file as large as the Ministry of Transport spread over a dozen filing cabinet drawers. To get her out of the office, he had to get her pregnant and marry her.

So, just sort things the way YOU feel comfortable with.

I tried filing by first letter but ended up with way too many Ts.
