New video posted! 🙂 How to Organize Office Files
So happy to see a new video….
Hooray! I’m SOOOOOOO freaking excited for a new video! Thank you!
Great job, Alejandra! I LOVE my Freedom Filer, too! You were the first
person I heard about Better Binders from. I fell in love with them and
haven’t looked back. 🙂 Nice to see your smiling face back on youtube!
Does she have OCD?
I wish you showed us what was included in each file folder category. Like
what all did you put in the “Never throw away” section. Great video, looks
Paperwork is the hardest organization project at home for me. I get so far
behind on it. Probably because I deal with papers all day at work, it’s
more fun to organize my other things at home. Enjoyed this video..going to
set a goal to get busy purging and organizing my papers! –Anne
OMG a new video yes!!!! So happy!
Love this video! Where did you find the bins that you used for your filing
I just got my Freedom Filer today!! I opted for the colored hanging files
bec those were the ones you had – so I’ll try them for now. Great to see
Can anyone see what the binder labels say?
Great video! What is in the top drawer though? Is that covered in part 2?
Hope you’re feeling better!
Thank you for such a fantastic, timely video! I’d like to know the section
of papers you never throw out. I’m sad when your videos end!
My favorite tip: colour code your tabs, not the file folders… Woops! I
needed that advice a few months ago when I started re-organizing my office.
Well, tips saved for future reference. Thanks Alejandra.
I would love to see a video explaining the process of making a system Iike
this from the very first step. My papers are NOT organized and they are
scattered around the house. I’d like to create this system in my home so a
video explaining the steps would be quite helpful
Great idea to use the colored tabs to denote a category and the hanging
folder as a standard folder. All those tabs create their own chaos and the
hanging folders are so full they come unglued from the metal bar and fall
Coincidentally did a big desk purge & re-organization early this AM. I’ve
so often wished you’d outlined a budget/sum spent on all the stuff. How
many years will it take to use all those label holders? Many of us are
moving to scanners and i-cloud as fast, more efficient, less costly, easier
retrieval. Would like to be reminded that 80% of retained paper is never
You were in my house, weren’t you!? The papers sticking out, the labeling
system leading me down one dead end to another. But then you talk about
purging a “Fy Ling Cabnet.” Huh? We so over my head. I’m gonna get it,
seriously, you’ve helped me a lot and ah’m lovin’ the good looks, OK?
If you don’t mind sharing, I think it’d be helpful to know what each binder
is labeled as. I can probably think of a few categories but I bet you have
many more great ideas!
Awesome Tips. I love this!!
That’s so cool – I have a huge cabinet/shelf monstrosity but I’m loathed to
get rid of it because it’s great for storing books, but it has 2 very
untidy draws, full of junk I’ve just shoved in there – I now have an idea
what to do with the the draws – thanks 🙂
Does anyone know of a product similar to the freedom filer system ? That is
a little bit cheaper and one the is available in the UK . Thanks :)
Maybe this is just me but this seems very anal retentive. I don’t have time
Alejandra, I can’t believe that you have your printer so far from your
desk. That means that you have to go back and forth every time you print.
Wasted steps, wasted time. You are so organized on all other levels. I
know that I print all most everyday. Maybe you don’t print as much as the
rest of us. Still you are the best organizer I have followed.
