Article SummaryX

To organize a filing cabinet, sort your documents into different categories, such as utilities, auto, medical, pet, business, home, taxes, and finances. Then, place each stack of documents into a labeled hanging folder, and place multiple documents of the same type into sub-folders to keep them contained. Decide if you want to organize the files alphabetically, by order of importance, or some other system. Finally, place the hanging folders into the cabinet so that they’re easily accessible when you need them. For tips on color coding and keeping the cabinet organized, scroll down!
