Looking for a way to keep your business records more organized? Kim Tipsword, owner of Kimmy’s House, shared this idea for a portable office. She uses these portable file boxes, one for DCFS files (physical forms, child records, space radon report, etc.), one for credentials for Grants, Excelerate, etc., and one for things she uses daily (calendar keeper, meal counts, and receipts).
She keeps her portable office on her stairs because she doesn’t use her second floor often. These could also fit under a coffee table or alongside a couch or on the counter.
