I have gone throgh my piles of paper and sorted them into categories: important information, crafts/recipes,etc. I have done sub categories such as insurance, deeds,tax information, etc., under important information. I have made a list to get to the file I need on demand and have been using color coding for my files, so far it looks very organized and very professional. I'm planning on printing out some labels for each file and have put my old tax records in a storage conainer since I need to keep them but not in my file cabinet. It is so nice to have a neat file system and I know it will make my life much easier.
I have a way to go yet but that is my progress so far.
