Organization: How I Organize All the Papers in My Life

I have no idea how to start this post so I am just going to jump on in.

Every Day Papers:

  • I use notebooks within GoodNotes on the iPad for papers I would use on a daily basis.
  • The notebooks I currently have in GoodNotes are
    • Financial plannings –  this is where I plan out my paychecks and what moneys go where.
    • Lists Journal –  literally a book of lists. From packing lists to wishlists to ideas.
    • I plan to convert my Workout Journal to iPad too.


  • Drawings and art I have made that is 8.5×11, I laminate and place in a binder for all my art.


  • Honestly, I get all my bills electronically. Paperless billing for the win. Occasionally, I get an Ad from one of the bill peoples but I toss those.


  • I keep a binder with each year I have filed taxes and all papers that went in to filing said taxes in it. Separated by year. With the final report on top.
  • I also keep a copy on my computer in a file called “Taxes”

Important Documents:

All my important documents are filed in to one of the below categories and then kept in a safe place.

  • Warranties/Instructions/Receipts from big purchases
  • Birth Certificate/Degrees/Passport
  • Pet Stuff (Shots records, ESA paperwork)

Medical Binder:

I also keep a binder of all my medical stuff. Dentist, Orthodontist, Doctor, Therapy stuff, etc.
