Getting Organized and Staying Organized

I am ahead in some of my work, thankfully, so I am going to take time this weekend to try and get my office and business stuff organized. With different streams of income coming in there's so much paper work and though I am organized by nature, I struggle to stay on top it all amidst every day life. How do you stay on top of paper clutter? Work projects, etc.?

    Ah.. first off, kudos for being ahead! :)

    Recently I went through the same issue, Theresa.. as I do multiple things, have many clients, projects etc.. this week I took control of the madness! Here we go..

    I have a desk, printer and a little office set up in our one guest bedroom.. I use this as a hub (and my computer) for all things work related! I went out this week and bought folders for EACH client of mine and labeled them, using this folder and it alone for anything pertaining to that client. I also have envelopes for checks from different clients so I always know what is from whom... On my computer, it is no different, I have folder dedicated to each client and within in those the different projects. I even have folders for invoices and images! I also add many things to my mac calendar.. when different invoices are due, projects, etc.. all with email notifications! :)

    I just got new file folders and I have expandable folders, so that's my next project so we are semi-prepared come tax time, which is just around the corner. Guess it comes down to consistency in doing the filing on a regular basis. It always gets shoved to the bottom of my list - I'd rather be doing something else! :)
