Let’s talk user manuals.
The key here is having everything in one place, all of our user manuals are in one blue bucket in my office closet, easily accessible. You could also store your bucket in a kitchen cupboard if you have the space.
All of my user manuals are in the bucket, sorted by type with index cards dividing them, e.g. large appliances, garage stuff, electronics, small appliances…
I’ve also gotten into the habit of stapling the receipt for the item inside the first page of the user manual so that I can easily find it when I need it.
Lastly, I go through the manuals every 6 months or so to get rid of the ones for items that we no longer have.
Happy gathering and organizing!
