Organizing With Binders
Using binders to help you organize your paperwork has a lot of advantages over using a traditional filing system.
- Binders are portable – it’s easy to grab a binder to take with you in case of emergency. However, this is also a downside – using binders for organizing important documents makes it an easier target for theft.
- Binders are easy to use – If you have a nice 3-hole punch or some sheet protectors, adding and subtracting items from your binder is a snap!
- Binders are easy to store – They look nice stored on a shelf or in a drawer, and they don’t take up too much space.
- Binders can be cheap – You can find great deals on binders during back-to-school sales. And, chances are good that you have some old binders around the office that you could use for an organizing project. Even if they don’t look nice, you can dress them up with pretty binder covers and give them a whole new look!
