With the amount of traveling we’ve done (too much if you ask me!) I have given up on scrapbooking. I’ll just be happy to have all my little bits of paper, information or calling cards in an easy to find location when I need to refer to them for blog posts. Once I have the information on my blog, I actually get rid of the hardcopy so it doesn’t take up physical and mental space in my home. Here is what I accidentally came up with after TD assembled our IKEA Kassett boxes.
Initially I thought it would be the dumping box for all those yet-to-be-organized files. Until…. I realized that it could accommodate hanging folders! Weeeee! I grabbed some plastic hanging folders from ACE (they come out cheaper AND sturdier than the paper ones – cuter to boot!) and labeled them according to location with my trusty Manual Dymo Labele Maker. I also used my electronic Dymo LetraTag Label Maker (using the plastic white labels with extra large font) for the “TRAVEL” sign on the paper insert of the label holder. (Note: Label holder with paper included to indicate contents for easy overview.)
I plan on using the other IKEA Kassett box for “HOUSEHOLD” files: house bills, maintenance receipts and appliance receipts/warranties. What do you think of my latest organizing project?
