Hello. My name's Melissa Schenk and on behalf of Expert Village today we're going to talk
about how to organize your business documents. In this clip let's talk now about how to organize
those business documents using a filing cabinet. Now you might have a traditional filing cabinet
or something that would be the equivalent of that. In this case we are using sort of
an antique made to look like a filing cabinet. We've turned it into that. We've taken a box
and we've went out and gotten the files. All you have to do is go out to a business store.
First, in the earlier clips we were figuring out what we wanted to organize and making
a list of all of the different subjects and headers that we might need. In this case your
files might include client, per client. So each of these file folders would be a different
client. Now, this might be business documents, for your business, or personal business documents.
If it is personal business documents, all kinds of things to think about. You might
have something for your work in here. You might have something to do with your income
tax. Or something that you particularly like. Car information, your banking information,
your phone, insurance. These are just some of the ones that I'm looking at in here. Warranty
information, anything to do with your resumes. Anything that you need to keep up to date.
But very important, the best way to keep organized is to know where things are and to have each
of these documents, each of these headers, labeled with each of these different subject
headings that you want to be talking about. The other thing, too, that you can always
use, when you're using the filing cabinets, very important, are just the manila folders
here. You can write on a particular subject in here and sometimes then you can double
up in each of these little slots right in there as well.
