I decided what paper work I had to keep then I organized them into piles and counted how many piles I had then I went to the dollarstore and bought that many plastic file folders the kind that have separate slots in them I then placed them in the folders and when new papers come in that belong into the folders I put them 8nto thier slots and recycle what is not needed.
