Getting overwhelmed by paperwork? We have all been there...
It seems obvious but most of us do not differentiate between paperwork we get, we just put in onto one pile (usually a big one!) and plan to deal with it when we have a minute … Sounds like you? Certainly, it is me, or rather was me until a few months ago when I started my own business and without getting organised I would not have gotten very far.
I started getting more and more papers and realised that majority was NOT important but I ended up spending as my time dealing with these as with documents that are crucial i.e. HMRC, Companies House, invoices etc. This is when I decided enough is enough!
Firstly I sorted through all paperwork I had, categorising documents into 5: URGENT – to be dealt with in the next day or so, Bills: usually paid by direct debit but good to see if there are better offers, Expenses, Information, Filing.
To do this I used a set of 5 Stackable Grey Letter Trays with Stylish Coloured Contours, which made the job much easier.
After that, I used two Stylish Grey Box Tower Home Office / Study Organiser Storage Units to organise various documents into separate draws, also creating a system where everything had its labelled place including copy paper, pens, sticky notes etc.etc. These Drawers are brilliant, just see how many awards they won over the years.
And this is when I came up with the system - 3 easy steps that will help everyone get a little bit more organised.
