Easy Summer Organizing Project – A Warranty File
I don’t know about you, but summer is not a time when I tackle any heavy duty organizing projects. I like things to be easy and breezy so we’re sure to enjoy plenty of time outside and a flexible schedule. That being said, I think it’s a great time to do little tasks that can be done watching a late night movie or on the occasional rainy afternoon or evening.
Enter: An easy summer organizing project – A Warranty File
marker (if hand-writing labels – I just used the labels that came with the file folder, or label maker)
stapler – to staple receipts and warranties with manuals
Simple Steps to Take:
I collected all the stray warranties in the house – some were in a paper pile, others were with the product, some were in a stack just waiting to be filed
sort through them and throw away warranties of products you no longer have
staple receipts and warranties to the manuals when you can – this is a huge timesaver in the event that you need the manual/warranty/receipt
determine several categories – here are mine – small and large appliances are great places to start
stack your warranties and manuals into categories and assemble warranty file
