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.
