You are brilliant! You get to the point quickly & describe everything efficiently! Not like those people who woffle on with all their personal crap & take so long to make a point if they even get there! Love your video!

Bex Mac says:

This is amazing! I love how you created a streamlined appearance with the white hanging folders. Question: You mentioned that you periodically purge your folders… Do you store all of your archived documents in your permenent section or do you have a seperate area for these items? Eg: 5-year old tax records. Thank you!

Immy 105 says:

It’s been more than a few years now and I love your videos before and after and all your tips and tricks great work keep it up lots of love immy❤️

Laura Gutierrez says:

I just love this…files look amazing. Where in the world did you find white hanging files. I’ve never seen those. And, yes! I actually have my hanging files color coded, but I also feel like it keeps the tabs from popping, and I really have to concentrate to find the file I’m looking for. Plus, I do use the folders within the files, to further categorize, and this is also distracting from the tabs. Gotta try this. Are those file cabinets from PB? Wish I could afford those. Beautiful.

what do you put in the Christmas binder?

Steph degroot says:

Love your shirt

Jonathan L says:

Marie Kondo would differ

em35489 says:

I think that you should put a small table next to the cabinet w/ the printer so when you plug in the cord, you don’t have to hold on to the computer

AniCris M.Morán says:

be honest! how many time take complete this ?

CP Tai says:

Monica, is that you?

Lyna Love says:

how do u organize small papers?

Melo C says:

Alejandra, Your guidance is great! Could you please show videos of how we could “go paperless”, by scanning documents and get rid of these ugly metal cabinets and file folders? I know that you could connect with the best experts, use the latest technology and show us the optimal way to have all of our records in a home backup system! It could be our New Year’s Resolution for 2017!

Stephanie Teciano says:

Hi there, is there a video on what kind of thing you should keep forever or not??

NewYork81983 says:

Sure, give the guy the poop colored folders 😛

Larry McCormick says:

I enjoyed watching your file organizing methods. I learned a few things that can really help me. I also subscribed. I’m sure you can teach me more. I appreciate it. Thanks for taking the time to make this video.
