Got a scanner to get organized, but need help with How To? If you've tried to go paperless but are having trouble getting set up, you're not alone. Today, people are caught between the paper- based and digital document worlds. So many of them feel disorganized because they have some information on paper while other information is in digital form. They want all of their information to be "somehow" merged together into some kind of system that makes sense for them, is easy to maintain, and allows them to find it quickly when they need it.
 
Intuitively, they know that turning the paper into digital format is the answer so they purchase (or contemplate the purchase of) a scanner. That's where they get stuck because now, they realize that they don't have a system for filing the documents once they're in digital format - or they don't know how to create one. It becomes more of a headache to "figure it out," so they quit. Their investment in the equipment, and especially their time, is now wasted.
 

Just one of our solution-based services, Island Organizers helps you to set up your digital filing system to match how you work. We'll teach you how to use your scanner and teach you a routine to make your office and your life into one that is "paper-less" and organized so your information is always at your fingertips!

DecoFlex  What happens when loose papers and small notes are buried in piles? We don't know what's there and can't do what we need to do. My longtime mantra is: "Paperwork that is lying down is sleeping or hiding. When it's standing up, it can communicate with you."

The Decoflex® box by Oxford® and Pendaflex® has been my favorite organizing tool for many years. A desktop file storage box with hanging folders and labeled tabs creates a highly-effective Paperwork Management System. Each tab designates a specific category or task and identifies folders' contents. This handy solution eliminates piles, wasted time and stress related to lost notes and vital documents. Learn more

"HOT ACTION FILES" -- This is the perfect tool to hold "active" documents, unpaid bills and other important To-Do's.  Once they're separated into categories: To Call, To Pay, To Input, Waiting For Reply, etc., the appropriate actions can be taken in a timely manner.  This is a temporary "home" for paperwork; it is not for storage.

PROJECTS --  Create a mailbox for your office staff, manage info for a client's project, store details while planning a move or a party, and save notes for an organization's committee.

FILING SYSTEMS -- In limited space, filing systems can be created using several of these portable containers. Each holds a different category of files and is labeled on the end of box, ie: 2012 Income, Paid Bills, Investments, Medical Records. They fit nicely on a bookcase or on shelves in a closet. 

Other versions are available in acrylic, plastic, mesh, metal & cardboard. Buy online at Office Depot, Office Max and the Container Store.  In Honolulu, visit local stores: Simply Organized and Fisher Hawaii. NOTE: Organizing products don't usually come with instructions!

We'd love your feedback. Comment below!
