Does this picture look familiar? Ok, maybe your situation isn’t this dramatic, but we know a lot of people who suffer regularly from paper pain. This pain is often accompanied by feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, frustration, sometimes even depression. Negative affects of this problem include time wasted looking for things you know you have but can’t find, increased stress and could also include a financial impact if you are incurring late fees, losing business opportunities or having to pay to replace documents you can’t find.
The fact is, we constantly have paper entering our lives. The mail arrives every day, we print things off of the computer, our children bring things home from school, service providers give us copies of important document. Statements, policies, tax related documents, invitations, notices, notes, intineraries, etc.. The list goes on and on.
If we don’t have a good filing system in place, we can be burried in paper in no time at all. Enter Simply Placed and the FreedomFiler. We love to work with clients to set up paper management systems that make sense for them. Hundreds of our clients have found that the FreedomFiler is that system. Its a great solution for home filing needs or home-based business filing needs. When set up properly it is virtually maintenance free. It provides a place for all your important paper. Both paper that you need to act on (but not right now) and paper you want or need to keep for reference finds a home in the system. Document retention is made easy as the different sections of the system “remind” you how long to keep certain documents, and the simple habits we teach with the system prompt you to move paper out of your life at the appropriate time.
Intrigued? Want to hear more? Come learn paper management techniques and set up your very own FreedomFiler system in our upcoming “End the Paper Pain” class on Monday, November 8th in Sammamish, from 6:30 – 9:00. In this hands on workshop you’ll walk away being able to:
