ringbinders folders files filing paperwork
"Many Folders" via FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Some people file all their papers in an orderly fashion, in a filing cabinet or folders with labels and in alphabetical order. Other people just seem to sling their papers in a heap or tuck them into random drawers around their house. How do you file your important paperwork and could someone else find vital information if something happened to you?

Vital info is always in clear view for family.
All my paper's are easy to find, once they open my cupboard.

The more important are in envelopes, and stuck with 'sticky tape' to the inside of my wardrobe, and have what they are ......written on the front of that envelope.
Er...I give it to my partner, the accountant! Given that I spent a few years working as a file clerk you would think that I would be good with paperwork...but alas, that is not one of my personal strengths. My partner has all our stuff filed in a reasonable manner in a filing cabinet in the study.
I have all my paper work filed neatly in those accordion-type folders, so in the case that something should happened to me, others could find vital information.

We have a big filing cabinet, with everything in clearly labelled hanging folders, arranged in alphabetical order. I just don't know how anyone manages to keep track of everything without some kind of order! However when I first met my husband, he just had a spike and everything got stuck on the spike, it meant he knew where all his papers were but they were in a random jumble with a big hole in them from the spike, if he needed to check any details!
When my mother-in-law died, we had to turn her house upside down to find her Will and in the end it was in a drawer with her tablecloths. So we impressed on my father-in-law that he needed to be a bit more orderly, so all his papers were in a briefcase when he died. They need a bit of sorting but at least they are all in the one place!
My wife is the one who takes care of this sort of thing. I would say all of our crucial documents have been filed.
Mostly online nowadays.
