3: Easy Reference Systems

​Module 3 of the Making Your Paper Work program​

Step 3 - Easy Reference Systems

Being able to quickly and easily refer to the important information that you need regular access can be a real source of frustration! You might have that information buried in a filing cabinet, desk drawers or boxes that make it difficult to search through and find what you need.

Even if you are aware that paper organisation is an area you desperately need (and want) to be more organised in, you might not have an idea what to focus on first, or where to start.

If you're feeling frustrated by systems that never seem to last long, fed up with the time wasted trying to find what you need, or unsure of how and where to start...

Then the third module of the Making Your Paper Work program is for you!

What You'll Learn:

→ The most efficient systems for organising your important information

→ Effective strategies for controlling your most troubling or ‘pesky’ papers as well as your financial information

→ Strategies for clearing your existing paper clutter in order to create peace of mind for you, and more order and calm in your household


This program is designed to eliminate the endless frustration, overwhelm, and wasted time and energy.

The goal is to bring you back a greater sense of control and peace of mind!


This detailed module includes 4 video lessons which encourage you to follow the paper organising process step-by-step (PDF transcripts downloads are also available!). We'll cover:

  • The best household reference systems, and which ones would be best for you in order to create more calm and consistency

  • How to set up your Household Management Binder (plus a look at how I created mine!)

  • Effective and efficient strategies for getting on top of and managing your financial paperwork so you can feel more in control of where your money is coming in and going out

  • The best strategies for organising those ‘pesky papers’ in your home, such as loose recipes, magazines, newspapers, coupons, receipts, warranties and manuals

A detailed workbook with helpful activities, guides, blueprints, cheat sheets and checklists, so you can feel confident in the decisions you make and the new systems you're creating

Discover new ideas and take inspiration from systems that others have created that are working effectively!

"I used to be constantly thinking about all I had to get done. Now since doing the Making Your Paper Work course, my days are actually more enjoyable because there's no underlying stress about what tasks I need to get done. I can't believe I've developed such simple administrative processing skills that have made such an impact on my life. I wish I'd learnt this years ago!"
