I got this pretty teal binder from staples along with the stick on label, they were part of the Martha Stewart collection.
Then I have a bunch of lines paper with tear sided for notes, these were also part of the Martha Stewart collection.
Then starts the dividers and page protectors:
I have a home section
For all the household papers I need at my fingertips for the month, bills for the month, church stuff, warranty paperwork I’m filing on, etc.
Then each family member has a section. I keep doctor order/referrals, the kids IEP’s, Advocate phone numbers, Lilly’s asthma plan, My bible study plan, Things I want to call teachers about, exc.
I used to have a pile of papers and would have to sort out everything each time I needed one thing. Now I turn to a section, grab it, and I’m set. At the end of each month, I clean it out, file what needs to be filed in the filing cabinet and throw out what is done.
