Time Waster Time Saver Thursdays

Step into my office and take a look at my bookcase. You might begin wondering WHY I have rows of binders. They are the secret to my paper organization.

Time Waster: Do you have piles of loose papers such as recipes, magazine ideas, school letters/papers, holiday ideas, house decorating ideas, travel papers, etc.?


Time Saver: Create information binders for the various subjects of the piles of paper that need to be organized.
Some ideas are:


Kid’s Binder: Sections for weekly teacher letters, upcoming field trip information, sports team lists, PTA notes, various information papers and letters from your children’s activities, school directories , etc.
Christmas Binder: Sections for gift lists, holiday cards you have received and sent, holiday recipes, meal plans, decorating ideas, gift ideas, etc.
Meal Planning Binder: Sections for recipes, meal ideas, meal plan/calendar, shopping lists, coupons, etc.
Home Decorating Binder: Sections for each room of the house, to-do lists, ideas, paint samples, places to shop, etc.
What papers do you need to bring organization to? Create an information binder for them!
Using binders not only organizes your piles of papers, it also creates a simple place to find information you need.
