Using Baggies for Bill Organizing

I use baggies for everything. When all my bills are paid I put all the invoices in a baggie and put the month/year on the outside. That way if I ever have to go back to find something it's easy. I used to use folders but when I would pick them up all the stuff would fall out.

I use the envelope from my Qwest bill since it's the biggest one I have. All my stubs and receipts and invoices are all in one envelope. Then I file it under that month. At the end of the year, all I have to do is pull out 12 envelopes and put them in a big manilla envelope with the year on it. That makes it easy for me.

I don't see a need for saving all these papers unless of course you have a business maybe. I do online banking and if I every have a need for a particular statement it's easy to get it from the institution. I keep receipts for all large purchases. I've even been tempted to shred tax returns since I have them saved on a thumb drive.

Thank you so much for sharing. I, too have used file folders with paper clips but this has not worked. I'm going to start this today.
