What if I don't have room for 24 month folders?
If you have very few papers, you may file paid bills and monthly statements into dedicated folders as described here. Alternatively, if separating your files into two or more file drawers is not an option, consider creating a rotating cycle consisting of fewer folders (see label sheet 1B in your Deluxe Kit). For example, if your tax needs are very simple (e.g. W2 only), you may only need a 6-month or 1-year cycle to keep petty transactions. Additionally, you may cluster 2-3 consecutive month tabs onto a single folder. If none of the above solutions suit you, instead, receipts and bills may be filed into a compact expanding file, either by month or by vendor name A-Z.
