Now, on to the post!
Certain parts of that system, mostly the Budget Box, was not working for me. I believe organizing is an ongoing process. We should always be reevaluating how we organize our spaces. So, since I was dissatisfied, I set out to create a binder system for my office. I believe this will work better because A.) it is portable. I am a busy! Sometimes it is helpful to be able to grab my bills and pay them during lunch or on the road. B.) It is more organized. In the Budget Box, everything was thrown in, causing a delay in finding paperwork that needed acted on. It really was just a way to get the stuff out of sight, but wasn't very organized. C.) The current binder system I had for certain paperwork wasn't working for me. I didn't use it often and things went undone. It needed reorganized!
Another note: I did film a video for this. YouTube is being super duper slow in uploading, so I will add that once it is ready. So, please check back!
Here are my results! (If you are interested in the products I used, please check out the list below!)
Isn't it pretty?! Here is a rundown of what each binder includes:
Home Management Binder: Bills, Accounts, Budget, Savings, Debt
Planning Binder: Parties, Holidays, Blog Ideas, Vacation
Medical Binder: Medical Info, Insurance Info, Prescription Logs
I used tabs to divide up each section, and if a section needed further dividing, I used cardstock with Post It sticky tabs on the top.
