Guys, I can hardly believe it's April, but I'm pretty thrilled because I'm loving these warmer temps and lighter evenings. My monthly project for April is seriously so lame (but so needed!) but I'll share incase any of you are following along with monthly projects of your own. My goal for April is to get things properly filed and organized. This is different from January's giant purge, this is where every important document in my home is filed away neatly, exactly where I know how to find out. Sounds so nice! :)
So here's my plan, I'm not a sentimental person and try not to keep much, so I'm narrowing down everything that needs to be filed/saved into one small file box - maybe two if everything doesn't fit in one!
This one Household File is going to have the following internal files:
Life Insurance Information
Retirement/Investment Accounts Information
a record of paint samples/misc items from home renovations
Charitable Donations and Write Offs
Health Spending Account Information
Anyone else have any foolproof systems that keep them organized? The plan with incoming paper is to "touch it once" - right when something comes in the door, it immediately gets filed into it's spot. Any other suggestions are welcome!
Past Monthly Projects: January's Project | Total Purge, February's Project | Organize Photos, March's Project | Frame
P.S. I actually achieved March's Project - yea!
I've had this pretty, organized desk saved in my files forever - pre-Pinterest days. If anyone knows the source please let me know!
