When labeling your folders, you only need a few key pieces of information:
- What’s in the folder? Think of describing it using keywords like taxes, correspondence, contracts, and so on. If the folder or group of folders refer to one project, then label it by that project and add keywords.
- What are the dates? If it’s a folder that you will not add any more to, then put start and end dates. If you’re going to add to it, then 2013- and leave the year blank.
