Keep Instruction Manuals and Receipts Handy
I staple my receipts to the inner cover of my instruction manuals. They come in handy when I need to review the product's warranty policy. Today there was a split in my vacuum cleaner cord and a spark came out of it. Since it was 3 years old, I assumed the warranty was over and I would have to buy a new one. I read the manual and was pleasantly surprised to find out I had a 5 year warranty. I called the customer service department and will be getting a replacement within 3-5 business days. Even with a coupon to Bed Bath and Beyond, a new unit would have cost $160 plus tax, so I just saved myself a considerable amount of money.
Preparing for Tax Time
Don't wait until January to gather your receipts and forms to file your taxes; do it throughout the year and save yourself time and the grief. Using a two pocket folder, with a medium tipped marker, write the word "Taxes" and whatever year on the folder. If the folder will be in a filling cabinet, be sure to write it where you'll see it at a glance.
Organizing Warranty Documents
Many products come with some type of warranty. Keeping the documentation where you can refer to it may help with arranging repairs or replacements. This is a guide about organizing warranty documents.
Selecting Paperwork to Discard
How do I select "what" business or personal papers to trash? (I am a "compulsive hoarder").
I write notes constantly, when it becomes overbearing, I throw them in a shoe box. I seldom get back to it when I need to as it is too time consuming.

I have a lot of papers and they are driving me crazy! I am looking for a system where I can scan old bills, papers, etc. into, that would organize as well. Any suggestions? I am looking for the least expensive method. My husband said that our scanner would take way too long.
Keeping Originals of Birth and Death Certificates
I have scanned old birth and death certificates, marriage license, etc. to a thumb drive. I will keep hard copies of my birth certificate and marriage license for myself and my children.
Organizing Information and Reminder Notes
What to do with all the information, such as reminder notes merchandise, doctors, coupons, everything? I always jot this down on scraps of paper which I can seldom find.
