In my old systems - which dates back to my teaching days - I had hanging files. Some of my papers would become creased or torn. It was not easy to always find what I was looking for. And there was the periodic, accidental slip of a file off my lap. Yes, those were pleasant moments, trying to match up projects or papers that went together and put it all back into a space that wasn't holding it in place.
Then the idea struck - with a binder I could just turn the pages. They would be nice a neat. And my projects and papers would be protected and kept together by sheet protectors - aren't they little heroes, jumping in to save the day!
Now, I got December done before I put it away. I have January done and sitting neatly on my shelf to grab whenever I want it. And I plan to do the rest of the months as they come.
I'd love to hear how you organize with binders!
