In folders, categorized. The most important stuff gets scanned to CD, and goes with the original copy into a safe.

I keep a daily diary and reference all receipts (purchase) in the diary. I enter all of them into my accounting system every 2 weeks or so.

Re: How do you organize?

all my statements are scanned into my PC and copied when its backed up.
All the other items, (car ins, loan papers, taxes, etc) go into an accordian style folder..after a quick scan.
Debit card slips...I put those on my PC desk and when the statement comes in, confirm the amount matches and then shred it, then scan the statement and shred it.


Dont know why, but I went scan crazy recently..did 14yrs of pay stubs...

Re: How do you organize?

Bills and other mail sit in a slot by the computer till I can get to it. Credit card receipts go into a folder called 'Unentered Receipts' until I have time to sit at the computer and enter them into Quicken. After the receipts are in, they go into a folder for the credit card (Discover, Visa, Chevron, etc). I reconcile the statements in Quicken and staple them to the bill and file everything to permanent storage.

Quicken handles most everything. I now pay most bills online through my bank - but for those that I need to cut a check, Quicken tracks it for me and I pay bills every few weeks.

They key is to develop a process that makes sense, flows the paperwork OK, is organized, and doesn't take too much time to maintain. I do accounting all day, every day at work - and it's the last thing I want to do when I come home from work. So I try to make it so it doesn't take too much time.

Re: How do you organize?

My wife and I bought a 4-drawer filing cabinet. It's much more simple to stay organized with seperate files for all your finances.

Re: How do you organize?

A big, huge $hit pile on my desk. Its really sad. But amazingly I have never missed/forgotten/been late on any payment in my life, and I write out 21 checks a month. Actualy, when I get a bill, I write the due date on the corner of the envelope, and keep all the bills in one stack with the earliest one on top. A week b4 that, I pay bills for 2-3 weeks out. The stubs get thrown into a quazi-organized filing cabnet. I know there is a much betters system, but I'm too lazy to improve this one since it works and theres no real modivation to improve it.

Re: How do you organize?

I just give them to my missus and let her sort them in to some sort of order, the only downside is, I have to ask her where she has put things, but maybe that's her way of making me think that i need her around

Re: How do you organize?

If I had your 'missus' email, I would definitely send her a pasted version of this entry . Not really, I wouldn't want you to get into that serious of trouble. (Trying to keep up, but you're good&#33.

I'm always in the , it's just the depth that varies .

My missus is pretty good actually, She has got used to my sense of humor and knows what to laugh at or too take seriously I think she knows what I think of her, seeing we got engaged a while back.
