Is Your Home Filing System a Disorganized Joke?
That’s too bad. Because a disorganized filing system is no laughing matter.
A failing file system is a sure source of frustrating paper clutter. How can you put papers away when you can’t figure out where they belong?
Paper clutter makes life harder than it has to be. It increases stress and distracts you. Clutter melts your focus. It makes you feel bad about yourself. Disorganized files cause family feuds and frustration.
But, as emotionally draining as they are, stress and frustration are the least of my concerns when it comes to disorganized home filing systems.
My Big Worry About Disorganized Home Filing Systems?
A messy, out-of-control home filing system puts your family at risk. Imagine if there were an emergency and no one could find the insurance documents? The medical records? The phone numbers of important contacts?
Or, God-forbid, a house fire destroyed your essential, irreplaceable documents. Documents that need to be in a safe deposit box but instead you keep stashed in your office.
Forgive me for being gloomy. But, you can’t imagine how annoyed I get when people laugh about their disorganized filing system. I get it. Filing systems aren’t a sexy topic. But they sure are an important one.
