I'm a bit late but I thought I'd share my very simple organizing trick with you.

I run my own business and I have to keep reciepts for everything or risk losing money for deductions. Not being BO (Born Organized) I've lost more than my fair share of paper and cash. That is until I hit on my master solution. A photo box. Everything, big or small goes in to the box, which is pretty enough to sit in the entryway. You could use a shoe box as well and decorate it, but I'm not very crafty. :(

At year end I take one day and sort everything and enter it into excel. My accountant actually praises me these days instead of making silly comments about the tax men coming to take me away.

I've never managed a system that works before but this one does.
