Here is my favorite filing tip that will save you lots more than just a minute.
The beginning of a new year is a great time to start fresh on many of your normal routines. Using an accordion file folder such as this one, to store your monthly invoices, bills, receipts, etc., makes the chore of filing a breeze. Every month you place all these items right into the appropriate month and just like that – filing done! No more thumbing through individual folders, placing one sheet into each. And at the end of the year, pick up the entire folder and file that away for the next seven to ten years.
There is a still a use for filing cabinets and manilla folders, however. These should house contracts, policies, medical information, manuals, and other things that need to be referenced from time to time. The beginning of the year is also a good time to sort through these files to make sure everything is current. Anything that is outdated or expired – gets the shredder!
Get started right away. Don’t “file” away this blog to do later. Click on the picture of the accordion file below and you can purchase your new filing system now.
Hope you are having a great day!
