Personal Filing

The way you choose to file your paperwork is entirely up to you. If you have the available closet space, an excellent and convenient way to file important papers is to use magazine holders, label them accordingly and line them up on the shelf for quick reference. An often forgotten set of paperwork that can be needed are instructions and appliance pamphlets. Separate folders or holders should be created for them, too. So, if the microwave breaks or DVD player starts skipping, you'll know exactly where to go. Tip: For a budget-friendly filing solution, cut and paint cereal boxes to serve as repurposed magazine holders.
