With the start of school, suddenly we have to dig out required documents and paperwork again, searching through our filing systems for birth certificates and immunization records. If your filing system makes this a challenge, start simple. Add some colored file folders to your cabinet, and use a specific color for each category. For example, tax returns, mortgage agreements, loan agreements, and insurance policies are all financial documents, and could all be stored in the same area in well-labeled folders of the same color. Then when you need to retrieve something, you can go right to the section you need instead of squinting at tabs as you finger through from the front.
