Dear Paper Pilers and Frustrated Filers:

According to The Wall Street Journal, the average person wastes an hour a day searching for misplaced, misfiled or mislabeled information.

Organizing papers is one of the easiest ways to improve productivity.
  • Are you overwhelmed by piles of paper in your home or office?
  • Do you spend too much time looking for information that you need?
  • Are you afraid that if you put a piece of paper away you’ll never find it again?
  • Have you ever been tempted to shred all your papers so you don’t have to deal with them anymore?

At last! Help is on the way!

  • Filing, find any piece of paper you need.You can find any piece of paper that you need in only a few seconds—whether it’s the schedule for your child’s sports practice, proof of jury duty service from two years ago or the contract for your biggest client account.
  • You no longer spend frantic minutes—or hours—searching for information.
  • Your desk actually has room for you to work.
  • You enjoy greater peace of mind knowing that your papers are stored away and you can find them when you need them.
  • Your kitchen counters are paper-free zones and can be used for cooking again.
  • You are no longer stressed out by “scary piles” lurking in corners. You can enjoy the beauty of the coffee table, window sills, credenza and other flat surfaces you haven’t seen in ages.
  • You know exactly which papers you really need to keep and which you can freely toss—you no longer have to save every receipt and ATM slip in fear that the IRS might demand them some day.
  • You feel calm and prepared knowing that in the event of an emergency you can quickly locate your vital documents and crucial information.
  • You easily prepare your taxes because all the information that you need is right at your fingertips.
  • You rapidly resolve disputes and issues, since you can quickly locate the relevant information.
  • You feel confident at work knowing that you are in control of your papers and proud of how your workspace looks.

Sound too good to be true?

Well, it isn't if you know the secrets to setting up an effective filing system.

  I know; you hate filing. Filing is for librarians and obsessive-compulsive nerds. You’ve tried to file and it’s just not for you.

But has anyone ever showed you simple, practical tips so that you can easily create a filing system that will actually work for you?

If you’re like most people, the answer is no.

However, people just like you are enjoying more time to do the things they really enjoy, instead of stressing over their mess, simply by using my practical, easy-to-follow advice. In fact, the organizational tips I’m ready to share with you today are so popular that my company is regularly featured in magazines including:

Simple, effective ways to organize your papers.
  You could spend a lot of time and effort trying to figure out what makes an effective filing system work, with a lot of research, elbow grease and trial and error.

Or, instead of knocking yourself out to try to learn the best ways to deal with your papers, you can have all the information you need in my new e-book:

Can't I Just Shred it All! 101 Quick Tips to File And Find Your Important PapersAt last! Everything you need to know about how to manage your papers is here, condensed into one brief, easy-to-read, well-organized document.

The response I’ve received from my workshops, magazine features and television appearances has been so great that I decided I had to make these secrets and tips more widely available! Read how these tips and secrets have helped others who once felt overwhelmed by papers:

“Lisa Zaslow's filing advice turned my workspace from a dreary, cluttered place to an inviting, streamlined office where I can think clearly and put my hands on papers as soon as I need them.

As an editor, I handle a lot of files and paper—Lisa's tips save me time and allow me to effortlessly cope with the constant stream of stuff so I can put my energy into more important things.”

“I had been shell-shocked by a duffle bag full of papers, but I was amazed at how quickly I was able to create categories and file them.

I had no idea that I could simply throw away my old electric bills and other papers. I had treated everything like tax returns, intending to keep them forever. I brought a ton of stuff to the office and used the high-speed shredder. It was so therapeutic!”

Ellen Shapiro, Attorney
New York, New York

“I just spent some time discarding papers and organizing my office and downstairs file area—I feel truly liberated!!!!!”

Lisa ZaslowI’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.

FilesI’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:

  • Paper management basics
  • Less is more—clearing paper clutter
  • Paper retention guidelines for everything from ATM slips to warrantees, answering the question “How long should I keep this piece of paper?”
  • Intuitive filing categories—creating a system that works for you
  • Color coding to save time and effort
  • All about file folders
  • Labeling—the key to finding what you need
  • How to file—the nitty gritty details
  • 7 features to look for when choosing a file cabinet
  • Where to put your files—location, location, location
  • Maintaining your system

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:

“I love my files. I love being able to find everything I need.

This evening my 6 year old daughter asked me for something. I told her to open the file cabinet and showed her how it is organized, and she found what she was looking for!”

Mary Gallagher, Business owner and mom
McKinnie, Texas

“Your one tip about categories for paper files and computer files saves me hours each week.”

George Grace, Founder, G.E. Grace & Company, Inc.
New York, New York

“Filing was an unsolvable problem for the longest time. Daily mail, new conference handouts, potentially-useful articles and assorted invitations kept files bulging and sundry piles building up. Finding some things was painfully time consuming. Plus, seeing it all was a downer.

Now file drawers have labels, frequently-used files are easily retrievable, and items under consideration have a place. What a difference!”

Elizabeth Guilday, President, Indigo Resources
Bronxville, New York

I finally have a filing system that really works. There truly is a place for everything! My files are color coordinated and easy to maintain, which is important because in my job I get new information constantly.

It’s a great feeling to know my papers are in order.”

Ann Connelly, Financial Advisor
Cleveland, Ohio

Lisa’s filing tips inspired me to start on the Herculean task of tackling the papers in my house and office. I shall spend this weekend clearing out some more, thanks to this inspiration.”

Jackie Keller
St. George, Utah

I really needed to hear your tips on broad filing categories. This might seem like common sense to some people, but my files were labeled somewhat haphazardly. Now I'm thinking bigger picture and it’s so much easier to deal with my papers.

And Tip 73 is such a great idea. Oh my gosh, could anything be easier!”

Chris DiMatteo, Travel Agent
New Brunswick, New Jersey
