Do you have piles of paperwork precariously strewn about your home that are begging for their very own space? A space that you will know to go to when the need arises for that one sheet of paper? A place that paper will be recognized for the value it holds? Let me introduce to you How To Organize With Binders!
Imagine this … you need a particular piece of paper and you don’t have to dig through a file cabinet or box to find it because it is right where you can easily find it … in the appropriate binder.
When you organize with binders, every piece of paper has a place. A place where it can easily be found and used!
You don’t need anything fancy to create your own binder system. Binders, dividers, and a three-hole punch will do.
If you want to take your binder organization one step further, you can purchase printables to put your binders over the top!
Either way, check out the binders I’ve created and be inspired to organize your own paper life with binders!
I’ve been organizing with binders for many years now. It started when my health required me to actually pay attention and track my own medical documents. A less cool version of the Medical Binder was formed. Thankfully, you get the sweet, refined version of the Medical Binder!

The kids had important papers that needed a home of their own. A spot where we could easily find the information we needed when filling out forms, adding them to our vehicle insurance, and gasp! filling out the FAFSA and college applications. There’s no more digging around looking for stuff because we have what we need in their Big Book Of Everything!
This is the binder your teens need to put the things they can’t bear to part with; like that driver’s permit she no longer needs because she passed the test and has the real deal now or those ASB cards from years past.
It is also a fantastic place for your teenagers to keep their own passwords! Those little pieces of scrap paper aren’t doing the job and your teens end up frustrated and start new accounts everywhere. Is that just us?
But that’s not all! Employment, School, and Vehicle printables will help teenagers organize pertinent information.
The Big Book of Everything for Teens empowers your teenagers with the information they need at their fingertips!
Can I just say how nice it is to have a binder to put all of your kids stuff in? These things get used a LOT!
When TeddiBear came along, he needed his very own Pet Binder to record his vaccinations, vet appointments, and important information. We also use the Pet Binder to keep receipts for his vet visits, important documents like his AVID microchip #, and his pet sitter information sheet.
