Last weekend was tax weekend for us. As I was preparing all of the numbers, I couldn't help but notice the mountains of papers that had accumulated in my files over the past year. I stopped right then and there and made a goal: Last year I filled two accordion folders with files, but in 2013 my goal is to cut that back to one accordion folder.
How do I plan on accomplishing this?
- Sign my accounts up for online billing
- Use cash for groceries and gas so that I don't have to save the receipts
- Sign up for online notifications for health insurance claims
- Pay off debt to reduce paperwork (and save money!)
- Create a file system in email
