I pulled them all down and layed them out...
Quickly realizing that this system
is no longer working:
Currently, I have AJ's records sorted by Doctor/Clinic with divider tabs. The binder above is Medical 2007-2009...and is overflowing. I need to come up with a better plan of action for his records.
Clearly, one binder is not going to be sufficient. I did start a 2010-____ binder, but I think I might split the specialists into two different binders, alphabetically.
The other binders represent organizations we have/currently receive services from such as respite, Birth to 3, and United Cerebral Palsy, as well as his plethora of school information.
I am a firm believer in keeping all of AJ's paperwork organized. There are many times I've needed to reference something while on the phone with the insurance company, scheduling another appointment, or working with providing information on AJ where I've pulled a binder and flipped to the appropriate section. They have really come in handy. I also keep all of my previous calendars (since AJ arrived home) on the shelf in the office. I've had to reference those quite a few times.
Stay tuned for Keeping It All Straight Part 2: Binders...
