Your financial filing cabinet: What’s your system for keeping your financial records in order?

What’s your system for keeping your financial records in order?
Do you stuff your bills in a shoebox? Do you have to play a game of hide-and-seek every time you want to find a bill?
Do you keep warranties or throw them away?
Can you find your tax returns from 5 years ago, or are they lost in a pile of papers?
Do you have a monthly budget record, or do you just spend it till it’s gone?
Do you know how to balance your checkbook? Do you do it regularly?

Basically, what I want to know is how organized and effective you are when it comes to managing your money.

I find that people who have a highly organized filing system, with color-coded labels and everything, tend to be more financially secure and better at managing their money than the people who are disorganized.

Why does this happen?
Well, the financial clutter in your mind is directly related to the paperwork cluttering your desk.
We unconsciously express our deep feelings about money (our mental financial “files”) in the way that we file our finances in real life.

Now, I know it can be daunting to get those files in order. But if you want to have success in attracting money, you need to show the Universe that you can manage the money that you already have.

And that means clearing out those financial files—in your mind and on your desk.

The Hypnotic Secret will help you clear out all that old junk from your mind by replacing your negative feelings and beliefs about money with positive ones. And now it’s your job to tackle the piles of papers on your desk and take control of your finances once and for all.

Here are some tips to help you get started:

Make space. Clear space at your desk for your financial records. If you don’t have a desk, use a filing cabinet or other storage boxes. Find a system that works for you—one that you can use easily. A rule of thumb is that the more time you spend setting up your system and organizing, the less time you will spend looking for things later on. So invest now in some good organization to save you the hassle in the future.

You should have a file for each bank account, each credit card, car insurance, life insurance, health insurance, loan payments, mortgage, utilities, and so on.

You can also scan these documents and keep records on the computer, if that’s easier for you.

And as you set up your new system, picture yourself clearing out all the clutter in your mind, too, and making room for a new, organized, successful way of managing and making money.

  • Be sure to copy all your important documents and keep records in a safe place.
  • Put important documents in a safe or a safe-deposit box at your bank.
  • Downsize. If you have too many credit cards or duplicate bank accounts, consolidate.
  • Keep all your bills in one place. Have a designated space for bills that need to be paid, and keep up with it regularly.
  • You should also choose one day a week to take care of bills, payments, and other financial housework. You can also set up automatic bill payment with your online bank.
  • Buy a calendar or a planner and USE IT.
  • Keep a small shredder handy, and go through junk mail or unnecessary paperwork regularly. Those piles can build up really quickly, and before you know it you’ll be drowning in piles of papers. If you don’t need it, shred it!
  • Carry a notebook and write down what you spend. Keeping track of the money going out will make you think twice before you spend it.
  • If you haven’t already, set up a budget. Stick to it as much as possible. Show the Universe that you know how to manage your money and that you are ready to attract more!

Just by following some of these simple steps, you can take back control of your money and make it work for you. Once you clear away the financial clutter,  from your desk and your mind, you will be free to work on attracting more money. And getting control of your finances really does send a message to yourself and to the Universe that you are ready for more abundance!

This week, take at least one step to organize your financial filing cabinet. You’re practicing good feng shui. And taking concrete action to improve your financial future will create positive vibrations in the Universe, and will lead to even greater action. Set aside time to organize your filing system, go out and buy some new containers, or just clear away the piles of junk mail that have been sitting there for weeks!

And even that small step is a step closer to success with attracting more money!

Think about it this way: You are busy creating a positive, organized environment for the money to flow into.
So are you ready for more? Then get busy!
