bought filing cabinets today - now to organize the files!
I found both a 4 drawer and a 2 drawer filing cabinent at Goodwill today, $5 for the small and $10 for the large. I couldn't decide, so I bought both. They fit perfectly side by side in the closet in my study.
So far I have weeded out daycare records, records for cars long gone, and records for flooring that I replaced, then replaced again. My youngest son is 11 so it's been six years since I had a child in daycare. I've owned the house 18 years & have replaced the living room carpet three times, yet still had records from the first carpeting.
I've given one drawer to school/office supplies and one to pictures. I still have two drawers left. I'm so excited to finally get 8 boxes of files and paperwork organized and de-cluttered. For the past 18 years I've had just boxes stacked up in that closet. It's amazing that I only had to spend $15 to get a system that will really work for me, and I wish I'd done it years ago.
