Helping you live in Heavenly Order:
Our top tips on Paperwork!
If you don’t already have a space or zone for your paperwork, create one now!
Gather all the paperwork into the one spot. Piles have a habit of accumulating everywhere
Set aside a regular time to work on your paperwork backlog
If your backlog is HUGE, start by sorting the paperwork into financial years
Have a paper recycling box next to you as you are sorting
Keep your relevant receipts together in marked paper envelopes to organise them
Do not store receipts in plastic as this makes them fade or darken
Scan receipts or documents into the computer to save them from fading
Make a filing system that works for you and update regularly throughout the year
Organise the files and folders in your computer
Open your mail at the same time each day
Always open mail next to the recycling bin, this way you can deal with the envelopes immediately
Avoid buying any storage products until the whole sort is done
