It's OK if you need a shortcut to help you declutter your home office file folders. You can't organize it all on your own! Instead, turn to easy tips like this one that help you manage the in-and-out nature of your just-in-case office paperwork.
If you're the self-appointed manager of your household's records, it's time to start implementing some managerial strategies. This one is swiped right from your local grocery store manager's toolbox.
To avoid paperwork taking over your home office, assign "expiration dates" to your file folders. If you keep your files sorted by their "keep until" dates, you can de-clutter your filing cabinet with one swift swoop into the paper shredder.
And if you've already made the move to storing your files digitally, you can also implement a "delete by" date in the file name of your folders.
