Colour coding files and documents will make your filing system a work of art and allow you to find things much more easily, so it’s definitely worthwhile.

Start by arranging your files into different categories and assigning a specific colour to each of these. For example, you could use red for sensitive documents and green for financial information.

Investing in the right storage system will make organising your files much easier. As a handy tip, it’s best to start by working out exactly what your storage needs are.

This will help you to determine the type of storage option that it likely to work best for you.
