A filing system is the easiest and most efficient way to organize all your personal and household paperwork.
  • Label each file folder specifically: Avoid vague terms such as "Medical" or "Insurance". Instead write the specific doctor name or insurance company on the file folder label. This will save you time retrieving and putting back files.
  • Sort through the contents of your files approximately 2-3 times a year. This will help you to stay organized especially around tax season.
  • Additional items you can file: Greeting cards, manuals, warranties, catalogs or magazine articles of interest.
