The Ducks In A Row System
If you are getting all your important documents and vital information organized with the Ducks In A Row System you will want to make sure you have all these products on hand before you begin.
Multi-colored hanging files with tabs - Color-coding categories makes finding your important documents a bit easier, and helps calm visual clutter when you follow the tips inside the Ducks In A Row System. Tip: when organizing files, keep personal and business separate.
Manilla file folders - Center-tab file folders are easy to read and have a tidier look than alternating tabs (left, center, right). When getting your Ducks in A Row you will be using manilla folders to quickly gather documents and place them inside the hanging files that correspond with one of the 9 filing categories.
Portable, plastic file box - Plastic storage boxes hold up better than cardboard. As you are getting your Ducks In A Row the last thing you want is for a cheap cardboard box to bust open and scatter all your hard work on the floor. These boxes can also store archived documents after you have gotten all you vital documents located, recorded and filed.
Fire and water proof document bag- This is perfect for protecting vital documents that would be a pain to replace if they got damaged: birth certificates, marriage licenses, passports, etc. I prefer a bag over a metal lockbox because it is less bulky and easily tucks inside a safe or filing cabinet.
