This video is an awesome example of how empowering it is to tame those piles and apply a method of organizing that makes sense to you. Thank you to my client for sharing her filing adventure - and enthusiasm!
Don't underestimate the value of going paperless - having statements sent to your email inbox instead of your old school mailbox is better for the environment (and your organizing sanity!).
Request paperless statements from those businesses that send you regular - monthly or quarterly - updates or account information. You can usually find this information on the company's website or at the bottom of one of your paper statements.
Set up folders in your email platform. It is as easy as drag and drop to sort those files - and you won't be left with piles on your counter!
Scan documents and store the PDF version - not the paper version.
