Why Organizing is Better with Binders

It’s no wonder the 3-ring binder is a required school supply - it’s a versatile organizing tool. Invest in a sturdy binder that you can use over and over, and if you’re storing receipts or time-sensitive items, remember to clean it out at the end of the year and archive important documents.

Binders can serve a lot of different organizing functions:

  • Using clear sheet protectors, file away warranties and manuals for electronics - keep the one for kitchen appliances in a cabinet and store the one for home entertainment in the living room.
  • Apply the same idea above for recipes and create your own cookbook.
  • Binders are portable, so they work well for projects that are active and require lots of meetings where you need to bring all your files and materials.
  • As a reference tool, many people can share binders to store ideas, guides, contracts, etc. Create a table of contents in the front of the binder so people can quickly flip to the tab they need.
  • Binders are excellent for filing chronological documents such as annual events, financial records or data logs, and school year activities.
