My best workspace advice (which I usually need to take myself) is to only handle things once. Put them in their place (everything should have a place) the first time you touch it!

My workspace organization tip is to take care of papers when they come in. Don't leave them on the desk. I have a folder for each child, bills, things to do, ect. everything gets put away.

I'm a suscriber and I believe that it's important to invest in a few simple things that are the key to being organized: file folders (which can be kept in a cardboard box if you don't have a file cabinet), color-coded labels & some felt-tip markers, That's all you need to really get going.

My tip would be to make sure that you have a fiiling that fits your needs. If it doesn't, then you won't use it! I have our business sep. from personal. Use expandable file for bills throughout the year and ready to tie up with pretty bow at tax time!

COLOR CODING!! I have GREEN files for Girl Scout stuff, Light BLUE for my son's school work, and PINK for my daughter's (I home school so this is HUGE for me!), RED for my paperwork that isn't related to those three things, and PURPLE for my husband's bills/mail/etc. The kids have known since they were tiny exactly whose color was whose and they still do!

Isn't it amazing that most of these comments give the same advice? You just can't let the papers and "stuff" pile up everywhere. Once a day (at a minimum) file papers, put trash in the wastebasket, etc.

I used to think I didn't need labels. I figured I know where everything is, and I'll remember what's what. WRONG!! I spent too much time looking for the file with 'xyz', and nobody else could find what they needed. Now I use a labelmaker and I label EVERYTHING!! Can't believe how much time such a little simple step can save!!

My tip is to not to start piles on your desk of things you've completed. It is better to file papers away after you finish with them so you can easily find them when needed otherwise you will feel overwhelmed. I know this from experience especially since I also take care of all my mother-in-law's paperwork.

My tip is to clean out your files every few months. Most things don't need to take up room in the file cabinet. If it's still needed box it up for storage or else throw it away

My best organization tip is to have an expanable file folder for things like receipts,bills,records,important information etc.and have each tab labeled for the 12 months of the year.This way if you are looking for something in a hurry, it is all located in one specific place.
