I’m Lisa Zaslow, the founder of Gotham Organizers, an organization and productivity consulting firm in New York. Since 2000, I’ve helped hundreds of clients manage their papers; people just like you—parents, business owners, and busy professionals. These people are smart and capable and competent, but were never shown the practical tips to set up an effective filing system—or even how to use folders properly. (Yes, something as simple as how to use file folders can make dealing with your papers a simple task or a dreaded ordeal. A few key tips make all the difference.)
I’ve seen every possible filing mistake. And I’ve seen how much better people feel when they get rid of their piles and create a system so they can file—and find—the information they need.
Over the years, I’ve become an expert in dealing with papers and creating easy-to-manage filing systems. As a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, I attend their meetings and conferences to learn the very latest tips and trends in the industry.
I’ve researched the many filing products available and have been to seminars given by office product manufacturers. I’ve read all the books out there. And frankly, sometimes my eyes glaze over! Even the organizing book for dummies is over 400 pages long. And can anyone really handle each piece of paper only once? I know I can’t. Some advice just isn’t helpful.
I’ve taken all the information out there, combined it with years of real-world experience working with people just like you, and boiled it down into 101 Quick Tips which will ensure that you can easily file—and find—the papers you need.
Don’t let the number 101 scare you—you don’t have to follow all of the tips to benefit from being more organized. The tips are arranged by topic so you can read exactly what you need to know:
With the right system, it’s as easy to file paper as it is to drop it in a pile. And it’s much easier to find a filed paper than one that’s buried in a pile!
Don't just take my word for it. Here's what people from all over the country are saying about this information:

weekend clearing out some more, thanks to this inspiration.”
