How do you organize your (business) life?

How do you organize, store and use all your paperwork in your home office (mortgage docs, receipts, invoices, tenant docs, and longer term stuff like business pamphlets, handouts, etc)?

Any suggestions on how you organize all aspects of your paper life is welcome.

Hi Jason,

For receipts I and invoices  I use CamScanner app to add them to organized files on the Google drive.  Receipts are organized by year and category for the business.  

Mortgage docs and deeds are kept in a safety deposit box.

Rental properties have two physical folders: One for a tenant, the other for general property items that are not necessarily a bill.  Then I have separate administrative drawer for bills organized by vendor or category. 

Hope that helps!
