My sister swears I am the only person in the world like this, but I am one of those old-fashioned people that love having hard copies of pretty much everything. I pay almost everything I can online, but there is something about receiving that bill that is so important to me. If I don’t get a paper bill in the mail, I will either: forget to pay it or won’t even know how much I am being charged. I also have tons of important papers that I need organized in case I need them.

I Needed a Bill Organization System

For as long as I can remember, I would get all my paper bills and just toss them in a pile. Or, I would take my receipts, and put them “some place safe.” The pile would get so high that I would eventually try to organize them. Or, I would search for days trying to remember where that safe place was. I tried desk drawers, filing cabinets, and accordion files. After none of these ways seemed to work, I finally found an efficient method that seemed to work best to organize bills and other papers.

I found some awesome little buckets at Hobby Lobby, labeled them with my Cricut (mainly because I love any excuse to use it), and DONE! I now have a convenient bill organization system. As soon as I check the mail, I make a trip into the office closet and place everything where they go. Luckily, we don’t have those piles anymore. Not to mention, I love how organized my closet looks.

Here are some of the categories I used for organizing my bills:

  • Car IMG_20170727_210349733-768x432 DIY: Quick and Easy Document or Bill Organization
  • Water/Electricity
  • Loans/Retirement
  • Credit Card/Receipts
  • House
  • Medical
  • Dog/Medical Cont.
  • Cable/Internet/Phone

Because everything has its own little bin, I can just throw individual bills where they go.  It’s been nice because I still get to be a little messy, but it’s an organized sort of mess!
