Win a Selection of Elba Filing Products
We want to help you get your home office or study organised for the New Year. Our latest competition gives you the chance to win a selection of Elba ring binders and filing products.
Organise Your Home Office
As the end of the year is fast approaching, now is the time to take stock and have a home office or study clear out. No doubt your working space is looking a little cluttered, so it is time to get prepared for a fresh start in 2017.
Shred It, File It or Action It
Over the past few months the pile of papers and envelopes has been gradually building up on your desk. No longer can you hide behind the “out of sight, out of mind” mantra. It is time to go through all your papers and make three piles and action accordingly.
- Documents to shred
- Documents to file
- Documents that require you to take action
Colour Code Your Papers
For those papers that need to kept, colour code your filing according to subject for the coming year. Colour coded Elba Ring Binders are ideal for keeping items filed by subject matter. For example:
- Financial: Bank/Mortgage Statements
- Utility Bills and Services
- Food and Housekeeping
Important paperwork such as medical records, pets’ veterinary records, instruction manuals for the boiler and appliance guarantees should be kept in their own folder. Keep this folder in an easy to find place, so everyone in the family knows where to find it in the case of an emergency.
Organise Incoming and Outgoing Mail
Keep mail organised by creating an Incoming Mail folder and Outgoing Mail folder for each member of the family. Elba Square Cut Folders are great for this task.
When mail is received, place it in the relevant folder for the person it is addressed to. Each member of the family should be responsible for reviewing their mail once a week and placing any outgoing mail into the relevant folder ready for posting.
Start as You Mean to Go On
Regularly review your paperwork. Do this once a month so you are up to date with bills, subscriptions and other documents requiring action.
