Drowning in paperwork--help!

I'm brand new to this board and hope someone can offer some tips,advice, etc.

My biggest problem is that I feel as if I'm drowning in paperwork. Every household has it I realize but my DH has children (exwife) and therefore after many contentious happenings between the two of them we document EVERYTHING and SAVE EVERYTHING.

 This creates a mountain of paperwork, and that is with me saving as much as I can on the computer but somethings (lawyer paperwork--and there is a ton) are hard copies.


Re: Drowning in paperwork--help!

  • Why need a hard copy if you can scan everything into you computer.  If you MUST keep a hard copy, get a binder, sheet protectors, and dividers and keep all of your papers in there.
  • I understand.. I like to keep hard copies too.  (After having my computer crash on me, I lost everything)  Maybe a file box?  You can get multiple hanging files to label and organize.  That's what I  do with all my paper work.
  • Do you have a file cabinet?  That's where we keep all paperwork that we need to hang onto.

  • Pick up some accordion file folders. As many as you want. I have 3, one for household, one for school, and one for random. Everything is filed in there by the company or business.

     But I don't keep hard copies, so it's pretty minimal. I scan it, and toss it. If I need a hard copy, I just print it.
