Three easy ways to organanize those endless “Piles of Paperwork”

Piles of paperwork. 

We all know them so well!  

Whether bills, mail, school-work or magazines, these piles seem to flood most households and become quite the eye sore.

Is there any way to avoid this?  Of course!  Just as I suggested in my Toy Organization Post: everything needs a place!  The moment you create a “home” for the usual paperwork you receive, the piles will diminish before your very eyes. Well, yes…It will require some work; but only the simple effort of putting something in its place.

Below, I have shared three easy ways to glam up your paperwork organization!  Let’s get those piles of paperwork organized:

1. Out with the old and in with the CHIC!

It’s time to bid farewell to those metal, chunky filing cabinets!  Home-office or not, household paperwork can easily fit in with your home decor!  With the use of cute baskets, metal dividers and chic file folders, I created a simple and accessible way to keep my bills in line.  Not to mention, much easier to look at!

2. Binders to the rescue!  

And what about all the paper that comes with those kiddos? These little munchkins sure require a lot of documents and a binder was the perfect solution!  In the early years, much of their information needs to be referenced at doctor appointments, dentist visits, meetings, etc.  I needed it by my side and the binder was much easier to bring along than a filing cabinet. {Or basket in this case!}

3. Eliminate those piles of paperwork completely.

I’ll admit:  I love paper.  I want to see it and hold it.  But after I finally agreed to try the Evernote ScanSnap {non sponsored suggestion}, I loved it!  It is an incredible solution for scanning all important documents and saving them on the computer.  Whether you’re a techy gal or not, ScanSnap is simple and user friendly!  Genius.

I don’t scan all my paperwork because yes, I still want some of it in a tangible version.





These three steps have created a perfect system for getting all of our family’s piles of paperwork organizedHope they help you too!
