Today being "Mail Day" I thought it was time to totally organize my files.
Plus we had to get our papers to the accountant for income tax, so thought, since every paper was out, I might as well get them in perfect order…..yes I said perfect, lol.
I thought I was pretty organized with my paper work…but I was delusional, lol.
A few times I had just put a bunch of mail in a basket or bag if someone was coming over and stashed them.
I never did get back to those bags…..until today.
So I made some labels got down on the floor and got to work…a side note..next time I will work on the dining room table, my knees aren't cut out for this anymore ;)
The labels were:
I then put each piece of appear under the label that applied to them.
I also had a pile of envelopes to be recycled off to the side.
I can't believe how unorganized they all were.
I have always had our investment papers in their own zippered page protector, but I also went into them and took out the 2013 papers and put them elsewhere and stapled all of the 2014's together with room for the 2015 papers in there.
I also labeled each zippered page protector with the account number and they are all in one binder.
My bills were paid, but not all of them were in their files.
I usually save all of our bills for the year.
But I think it is unnecessary as once the new bill comes, stating that we have paid the last one, that the old bill can be shredded.
But I will still record the payments in my book…..it is just a book keeping thing I still need to do, lol.
I put the Misc. papers in their proper place.
I didn't realize how many recalls are on our vehicles…I am thinking I need to make a few appointments for the jeeps and truck, wow.
So that is what my day consisted of.
Nothing exciting, but it is a good feeling to have all of the papers organized :)
I hope you all had a very Creative Monday :)
