My Organizing Tip of the Month is to create new files for 2016. I love talking about my filing techniques. These are my files from 2015 and I’m currently creating new folders for 2016 so I can start filing my new receipts and paperwork. I make hanging files for the general categories and additional files folders for the more specific items. I use a simple black portable file tote (see photo here) or a desktop organizer (picture to the left, from The Container Store) to store my current files and a Watertight File Box to store my older documents. All paperwork is in the same place for my business and my personal files. All I have to do at the end of the year is transfer the folders over from the tote to the file box and store.
Let me know if you have any questions!
