Since the kitchen is the heart of the home and often Grand Central Station as well, it’s important to keep the paperwork needed to run your household and family organized in this space.
There are two popular options for managing that everyday paperwork.
- Fill a large 3-ring binder with clear plastic sleeves. Label sections for the restaurant menus, coupons, school schedules, after-school activities, important phone numbers, entertainment and activities. Anything you need on a regular basis can be filed here.
- Purchase a small desk-top file box and folders. Create a file for frequently accessed papers, including all-of-the-above and maybe some more. How about adding, community events, sports team rosters, current medical information?
Both these systems keep paper organized vertically and horizontally in stacks on your kitchen counter.
