Tip 2: Stop wasting time hunting down lost items

Items are easier to find when there’s a place for everything, and everything has its place. Use Avery Removable Labels on boxes, bins and containers to assign a home for office supplies, loose receipts and bills.

Tip 3: Freshen up your files

Want to find out which files you use the most? Each time you use a file, cover up the old file folder label with a new one using Avery File Folder Labels. You’ll be able to tell which files are used often by their updated labels (and which files need to be archived).

Tip 4: Use it or lose it

Crack down on unnecessary clutter in your home or office. Sort items into boxes marked “Trash,” “Recycle” or “Donate” using Avery Full-Sheet Labels, and start chucking.

Tip 5: Make tax time easier

Relieve tax-time anxiety by simply sorting your paperwork by type before you prepare your taxes. Use Avery File Folder Labels to label folders for general information, income documents and deduction or credit records.

Tip 6: Reclaim your space

Documents such as past tax records or business statements might be better off in storage instead of taking up room in your work space. Pack them up in storage boxes labeled with archival-safe Avery Shipping Labels so you know what’s inside.

Tip 8: Forget the paper shuffle

Tackle those paper piles on your desk once and for all with labeled binder clips. Print Avery Return Address Labels with an action such as “File,” “Send,” “Read” and “Share” so you’ll know what to do at a glance.

Tip 9: What’s old is new again

Save time and money reusing boxes for storing or shipping. Cover up existing labels and marks on old boxes with Avery Shipping Labels with TrueBlock® Technology and block everything underneath.
