Everyone has business, personal and/or household documents, whether they’re paper, digital, or a combination of both. Without a good filing system, trying to find something when you need it can be a real nightmare!

Many of my readers are experts at creating and maintaining filing systems, so I invited them to contribute to this month’s edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

The sponsor for this edition is Sabrina Quairoli of Sabrina’s Organizing & Admin Services, a Megastar Blogger who has contributed to more than 50 editions of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.  Sabrina has been helping small businesses, primarily solopreneurs, since 2001 while raising two kids and taking care of her dog while her husband traveled extensively. She helps them stay on track with their social media marketing, bookkeeping tasks, website content updates, and office organization and process improvements through virtual and on-site meetings. To help people learn about time blocking in a business, she created a free ebook called Time Blocking Tips To Keep You Focused in Your Business.

As you read the posts listed below, please connect with the bloggers on social media, leave comments, and share your favorite posts with your own network.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this Blog Carnival, especially our sponsor, Sabrina Quairoli.

If you offer a product or service that would interest professional organizers, productivity consultants, or their clients, maximize your exposure by sponsoring an upcoming edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival.

I’m now accepting submissions for the next Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, when our topic will be Collaboration, sponsored by Peggy Wonder of Space For You.

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.
