Drowning in paper?

If you are a visual person it will not suit you to store your documents in closed filing cabinet. If you like to see what you have here is a creative solution.

I have lined an entire wall with these for clients who like to see everything. 

Its an inexpensive way to get your piles off the ground

Want to get organized? But don’t know where to begin…
SORT, SORT, SORT- make piles upon piles and label them with post it notes. To make the piles seem less cluttered stick them in file folders. 
Once you are done sorting its easy to get a big picture view of how many files you have and how much storage room you will need.
