Make use of colors or coloured labels to store your paper in different files. Having colors will allow to more easily associate documents with their proper location in the files.
4. Discard papers when needed:
We, as human beings, always have the habit of keeping the maximum amount of paper we have, in fear that we might lose information. A very good way is avoid is this is to digitise the information by using a Document Management System (DMS) such as StoragePlus.io (www.storageplus.io). Upon digitisation, you can easily discard these papers.
