Use these steps to sort papers and minimize the clutter and chaos of documents.
Go through bins of paperwork you keep, tossing what you don’t need and sorting the rest into folders (such as home repairs and tax forms) that can go into a filing cabinet. Compile a master list of all your tax-related to-dos and keep it in sight (on your refrigerator or in front of your computer). Not sure which documents should be saved or shredded?
