Here are some categories you might find helpful, along with possible subcategories.

  • Auto/Vehicle – maintenance records
  • Correspondence – letters, cards, even printed emails
  • Employment – job records, current resume, benefits information
  • Family – keep a file on each member of your family to keep track of records, favourites
  • Financial – checking, savings, loans, investments, receipts
  • Hobbies – ideas, projects
  • Home – contracts, maintenance, utilities, design ideas,
  • Important Documents – important enough to be kept separate from other docs, but not important enough to go into a fire safe (i.e., birth certificates, marriage license, passports, etc.)
  • Insurance – home, auto/Vehicle, medical
  • Medical History – records on each member of the family
  • Pet(s) – keep a separate file on pet health, favourite vets/kennels
  • Taxes – keep 7 years of tax records

If you have a label maker you could just stick the labels direct to the inserts
