Believe me, using ring binders is the easiest way of organizing mail and bills, placing documents in them in chronological order, as they are received. By doing this you will avoid having a mess in the first place and can later on check your binders and easily remove any unnecessary documents or place them in alphabetical order, by subject, if you wish. More detailed advice is included in "Daily Guide to Organize your Time, Home and Office".

I Soo totally agree! Being ADD, homeschooling and running a business I learned how really valuable 3 ring binders are!!!! As soon as any paper work of importance came through my door it was placed in the proper binder. When things got chaotic from everything else thrown on my desk I just needed my binder to find the paper I needed. Now all my paperwork goes in binders!! Might take up a little more space but oh so easy to find what I need. I even get special decorated ones, the ones you can put your own cover page and different colors for different paper work, super simple reach for the one I need! When I shut down my business after 10 years I was so proud of my binder system everything was so organized. An audit was no problem everything right there! No more papers every where!

I'd like to add to my comment posted. When my mother in law needed caregiving there were so many medical papers, house hold papers etc. we were drowning so binders to the rescue! Anytime we needed a certain paper boom right to it! When we had to go to different Drs I had one binder with all papers I would take. When she past went through the papers left what was needed for taxes and put binders in storage. Hope this helps others!!
