Organize Your Papers

Services for Real Estate Pros with BizEBee Virtual Assistants LLC


I don’t know about you, but it always seems like papers are everywhere. Once you clear off the papers, there is little left to be organized. So how do you eliminate and organize these papers? There are some tips and tricks you can do to help make it more manageable.

The first thing you need to do is go through your mail immediately. Don’t set it on the counter for later, don’t put it in a mail bin for later, go through it right away. Put bills wherever they go, put coupons where they go, and anything else that needs put away do it right away. 

The next thing is to get a filing system in order. This one can be tricky depending on your needs. If you are just organizing household items, it may only require a small filing cabinet with a basic system. If you are filing items for work, it could require a larger or multiple filing cabinets. If you have items you file and use on a regular basis, keep a small file box or expandable file folder on your desk so you can immediately put it away. Don’t create so many categories that you can’t keep track of them, but make sure you have all of your basics covered. You can always add more as needed. 

If it is affordable for you, invest in a document scanner. Most of them can easily organize your documents onto your computer and then you can throw them away! Wouldn’t it be nice to have minimal documents to file and organize?

The last tip I have is to stay on top of it! This is the biggest one. It only takes 1 to 2 days to fall off track and have a huge pileup of papers. Just take the 5 minutes and file it all away where it goes.

It is very easy to get a stack of junk on the desk if you are not careful

As a couple that detest paper we have so little of it. When the mail comes almost all of it goes to the recycle bin.
