Considering that I do the majority of my banking and bill paying online, it’s ASTOUNDING to me the amount of paperwork I still receive and need to keep filed! It’s enough to make my head explode! LOL
But accordion folders are my new best friend because you can store a vast amount of paper all in one small space.
Let’s take a look at some of the styles you can find:
This is similar to the accordion folder I use for our healthcare paperwork. Talk about paperwork! I’ve got individual file folders for each family member along with a folder for our Health Savings Account statements. This paperwork is vitally important – especially when you have medical bills on a regular basis – so I like having it all stored in one space.
I also have a larger version of this folder, complete with a handle on tip and a front latch, for our household expenses and financial records. It’s much larger than the one pictured but I also have individual folders set up to keep all our statements separated.
Of course, no home would be complete without an expandable folder for coupons and I also have a separate, bright blue one for receipts.
And both of my kids have used accordion folders for school. Look how cute this design is!
