Several things make Cathy's system unique from what I was previously doing.
First she uses a color system to help you organize.
Second, she has wonderful preprinted tabs, so everything is neatly labeled. This alone automatically makes my files look uniform and organized!
But it's more than just neat looking, it's well planned. With her filing system, you get a booklet that helps you think about how the files should be organized and where. There's also help with what papers to keep and not to keep!
I confess, when mine arrived, I was a bit resistant to rework the current order of my files, but I decided to give in a little and try what Cathy suggests. After all, she spent 3 years developing this system and working out the kinks. And hey... mine wasn't working so hot for me, now was it? What did I have to lose?
