So I gathered up all of the little papers that were floating around our house, stuck in drawers, lying on counters, stuffed into our overflowing fire-proof box, and figured out a filing system that instantly transformed our office into one of the most functional rooms in our house. (It’s about dang time!)
And, of course, to really get into the organizing mood, buy some crisp, new hanging folders, and type up some labels to make your file drawers easy to navigate.
I spaced out the organizing process over the course of a couple of days while our little one napped. Take it from one who attempted it, organizing files with a toddler in your office is impossible. For real, just walk away until they conk out at bedtime.

I think this post is going in the record books for the most technical one to-date, but it is amazing what organizing files can do for your peace-of-mind. It’s like doing a yoga marathon! Cleansing breath, people.
