Out with the Old, In with the New

Don't forget, now is a perfect time to do your year-end filing. I did mine this weekend and I am all ready to start chomping away at this year's bills:-)


Here is what I do:
  • I empty all my files into one big folder and label it with the year that just past.
  • This folder gets placed in an archive box with the last 6 years of documents.
  • Then, I remove the oldest file in that box and shred it.
Now, I have all the documents that I need to retain for the IRS-required amount of time and a filing system that works:-)


This was not so Wordless Wednesday at 5 Minutes for Mom today but more Wordful Wednesday on parenting By dummies:-)

I actually think that's a system that would work for me too. Thanks for the hint!

Susie, I'm still trying to get up the energy to put away the Christmas stuff and find places for all the new things we received. I am over the moon envious that you're already organizing your files. Why is it that my files seems a lot less overwhelming than the other stuff? Ugh!

Michelle said...

That is such a good idea. I don't know why I never thought of it. Thanks!

I am the most organized man in the world. I married a former secretary.

Michelle said...

Awesome! I love how you have that system. I have some thing that are probably ... long overdue for shredding. And now I have a goal for next week.
