Filing away hand-drawn Mind Maps

The great thing about software is that you can store your Mind Maps straight onto the computer and have them filed there. With hand-drawn Mind Maps you may end up with a chaotic mass of paper.

As someone who is keen on computers I deal with paper Mind Maps as follows:

In this way you can generate Mind Maps by hand and then file them away digitally and readily access them again.
