To be completely honest, I have a VERY big backlog of before + afters so I’ve set myself a goal this summer to start uploading and sharing them. Today is the beginning!
Here is snapshot of a project involving organizing paperwork and setting up file systems in a home office. My client was interested in gaining control of the piles around the house and setting up a system that could be easily followed with a very busy work + family schedule.
I love working in offices so this was really fun and it’s always a relief to see all the clear spaces once paper has been conquered. What did it involve?
Step 1: Sorting + classifying all of the paperwork (including what to shred + recycle)
Step 2: Identifying items that needed to be regularly accessed vs ones to archive (ie. tax returns)
Step 3: Discussing different types of file systems + categories with my client to find the best one that works for her + her family
Step 4: Putting it all together–labeling files, color coordinating for easy retrieval and feeling excited about a new system!
