Organizing Tips… filing

Paper filing can be very confusing. Often we just don’t know if we have to save something or not, so we end up putting it into a file and then, more often than not, we never look at it again.

As a professional organizer, I recommend keeping filing as simple as possible.  Files have only 2 categories for me, they are either Current/Active or Historical/Archived.

Current/Active files are those kept closest to you, on hand and available for your quick retrieval.  Historical/Archived are files in storage or furthest away from you.  You are keeping this material because you are required to by law or because it is of value to your family.
