A simple filing system for invoices

This is a minimal filing system for sales and purchase invoices that nonetheless sorts out paid from unpaid. It’s a lot better than the carrier bag approach and the only equipment you need to run it are four box files!
Boxes one and two should contain the unpaid invoices:

  • Box 1 contains unpaid sales invoices
  • Box 2 contains unpaid purchase invoices

Once paid, invoices should be moved to box three or four:

  • Box 3 contains paid sales invoices
  • Box 4 contains paid purchase invoices

If you’ve got one of those old school wooden desks with drawers either side you can use those in place of the box files but then where would you keep the bourbon and revolver?
