Supplies (folder is an eight pocket poly organizer).
Easy as pie. I am using invoices, printed calendars, lists, etc. This is for vehicle maintenance and staff, for work. This folder technique won't work for everything, but it's one good option.
First step is to separate all your papers/documents into piles. For me I put invoices together, calendars, staff list, vehicle list... You get the idea I'm sure.
Piles. Also, you can highlight specifics or anything if you like to make it easier for yourself, or key words.
Write your categories on to sticky notes and place onto pocket. Put in whatever order works or makes sense to you.
Once you're happy with the designated pockets, mark it with permanent marker.
I also used a sticky note over what I had just written to prevent smudging or ending up on the pocket across (until dry).
Now put your piles into their homes!
Recycle or Reuse your stickys.
I have a few folders like this. Now you know where your papers are, and if someone asks you'll whip it out and hand them the exact thing they ask you. You know what's up and where it is.
As a plus you'll appear like you've got it together even on your worst days, and you'll impress a boss (not to mention this is way easier for yourself) to be so with-it. No more misplacing pages.
