Paper Organizing Cheat Sheet PRINTABLE

Know How Long to Keep your Documents - great for getting organized and filing papers away! FREE print on { }

Have you ever seen the show, “Hoarders”?

If not, you might want to check it out one of these days.The hubby and I got on a “Hoarders” kick and watched every episode that is on Netflix. We were seriously so enthralled with these crazy people. It made me realize that I’m a bit of a neat freak at times, and that I truly find joy in being organized.With that in mind, I was happy to attend an Enrichment my aunt was teaching on Organization. She taught some amazing things, and in the end gave everyone a sheet that said how you should organize your paper/bills.Perhaps you’re better than me and remember all these things, but I can barely remember what I had for dinner last night, hence, the reason I did this.I decided to spruce it up a bit and make it available to all of you.

What’s great about it is that it tells you how long to keep each of your documents –

i.e. bills, pay stubs, insurance docs, tax records, etc.


Click on the image above, and then RIGHT-CLICK and SAVE. Open it in a program like WORD and PRINT.

There really isn’t much of a tutorial.

I just downloaded the pic, printed it, added it to some scrapbook paper and then laminated it. Top it off with a magnet on back to make it even more handy.

I’ve put this baby on the filing cabinet to remind me how long and if I should be filing certain papers. Now, I just have to remember to actually FILE the papers!
