Paper filing has always been a struggle for me. Finding the perfect solution to simplify that process is important. I can’t tell you how much time it has saved me so far. Keeping my personal and business files organized and easily accessible was vital. I definitely needed something simple and streamlined. I have put together a file folder organization holder utilizing my Epson Portable Label Printer. Learn how to use a label printer to simplify your life below!
I’ve tried filing folders in filing cabinets, but that didn’t work that great for me. I would get overwhelmed with the chaos of the cabinet and therefore never bother keeping it organized. I found this handy white file organizer that fit perfectly on the wall by my office desk from Ikea ( go figure :)) I also found these cute patterned file folders in the Target dollar bin. *Score!* I categorized my pile of papers in 6 file folders. This helped with not feeling so overwhelmed.
I took a look at the papers that I had laying around that needed organizing. The categories I came up with that would help the most are: Blog Notes, Menu Planning, Coupons, Taxes, Bill to Pay, and Misc. (for all the random papers that don’t fit into one of the prior categories.) These are the categories that work for me, but figure out what would work best for you and your family and give it a whirl!
