Paper clutter is one of the biggest issues in our home (and our child is not even in school yet!) Whether it be the mail that I just haven’t gotten to yet or the bills I am waiting to pay (so that I can do them all at once), I tend to get piles of papers all too often.
Do you have the same problem in your home?
I can easily get into the mindset of “I’ll do it later” but often that “later” becomes MUCH later. And the piles continue to grow.
I have learned throughout the years that I need to deal with the papers coming into our home RIGHT AWAY or the piles become overwhelming and topple over. That is why I have a bit of a system in our home now. With mail, I try to deal with it as soon as I walk into the house with it. If it’s other paper work, I try to put it in the general area of where it needs to go (like on top of the filing box, instead of in it, which is what I should do) or shove it in the pocket of my home management binder.
And now my home management binder is stuffed to the brim because I am not filing things where I should or do not have the place to put certain papers. That is where I find the Samsill DUO binder to be so handy! Not only does it have pockets (7 of them!) to file papers, but also a 1 inch 3 ring binder to store all of my billing sheets. In other words, it is a 2-in-1 organizing system!
The 7 pockets, which expand like an accordion, can be used as a mini filing system. It includes blank tabs so you can create your own personal filing system. For example, I have categorized mine into these files:
- Postage – where I keep my envelopes and stamps
- Cards – cards to be mailed out that month for birthdays or anniversaries
The DUO binder is water resistant (which is great for me because I keep mine in the kitchen where it is often spilled on) and durable. It also has elastic bands to hold it secure.
The binder portion can hold up to 225 sheets.
Here are some other ways that you can use the DUO binder:
- Recipe Binder
- Shopping Lists
- Tax Information
- Medical documents
- Financial documents
