Who needs it!
Oh, right…we all do.
How do we deal with it? Old answer: make a pile and shove it in a box and pray you don’t ever need anything out of that box. Ever.
New answer: File it with in color-coded hanging files with pretty tabs!!
Does this stuff make you feel giddy inside? Yes? Me too!
Don’t you just love having ‘a place for everything and everything in it’s place’? Our green files are for anything money related…creative, I know…
Red Files have ‘home’ stuff in them. I’ll give you 2 guesses for which member of our family has the yellow files…
The pretty girl and I share the purple files and the boys share the blue files.
My friend Kala came over one day and we worked on getting this system going. First we coverd the tabs with washi tape, then we used the label maker to print the title of each file. Because if it ain’t cute, it ain’t happenin’. (I should make a t-shirt with that motto on it)
I went ahead and covered the rest of the tabs that came with my files.
This way I can just grab one and make a new file quickly with my label maker.
So far, so good with this system. I have had to find an item or two lately and I don’t
sit and rock in the corner curled up in the fetal position feel dread at the thought of it!!
How do you like my beautified filing drawers? Do you have a system that works for your family? I would love to hear about it!
