A couple of weeks ago when I was shopping for the kids school supplies, folders in particular, I came across this cute expanding file folder. I liked the design so much I tried to think of a way I could use it..so I thought, Why not use a file folder to keep papers and mail organized? I bought this file folder pictured above, for less than $7, and did just that. I decided that I would use it in the busiest part of the house, the kitchen. The island counter in the kitchen seems to be the spot for all things. Most of those things being bills, mail, important papers, receipts and etc… So, I have been using this Five Star Style Expanding File, to organize all of those things.
Since, this expanding file can get full pretty quick, my plan is to empty it and put/file everything away every month or so. I am happy to see that I have been able to keep the busiest area of my home organized and free of clutter! I like it so much I may go back and get some more. You can find these file folders at Target.com and Amazon.com.
