Do you cringe at the thought of filing? You are not alone.
I have yet to meet anyone who likes filing - me included.
Having a system will make it easier and allow you to find what you need.
You likely do not need to keep many papers. It’s easier to google for info than to keep reference files.
What do you really need to keep and what is the best way for you to store it so you can find it again?
Next, decide what kind of storage method works best for you. A file cabinet? Bins? Boxes?
If you like clean surfaces - and keeps a calendar and to-do list, a filing system with folders in a drawer might be best.
Do you need something out as a visual reminder to do things? Maybe a stand up file on a counter or sorting cubby’s is best.
Here are some options for desktop storage:
Pendaflex Portable Desktop File
Officemate Large Incline Sorter
5-Tier Mesh Desk File
There is no wrong way to file/store papers - as long as you know where to put things and remember where to find things, it’s a win!
