Paper Organization Challenge – Day 3: And Sort Some More!

Paper Organization Sorting

Welcome new readers to our Paper Organization Challenge! We’ve just begun a new 21 day Challenge on how to organize papers and if you’d like to “play along” (as one reader stated), simply check out the posts for Days 1 and 2 and you’ll catch up with us in no time.

For those of you who are participating, how is the paper sorting going? I’ve heard from several of you asking for help identifying additional paper categories. I’ve also heard just how much paper you have to sort. So … we’re going to spend Day 3 sorting, and sorting some more!

Here are a few more important categories of paper to create during your sorting process:

  • Action Files – this category should include all those papers that still need your attention (such as bills to pay)
  • Vital Documents – this category includes all documents that are difficult to replace (such as birth certificates, social security cards, marriage licences, etc.)
  • Owner Manuals
  • Travel

Still having trouble determining your categories? Or perhaps you’ve come up with some unique categories of your own. Either way, I’d like to hear from you!
