Organizing 101 - Manuals and Warranty info

Is it just us or does everyone else also have a thousand brochures and pamphlets and booklets - instructions and warranty information for large appliances, small appliances, electronic devices, tools, computer equipment etc.? Over the years, they've piled up in boxes and drawers and cupboards.  Completely unorganized and taking up space.  When we were packing up our previous house, I realized how many we actually had and decided to organize them and store them all in one place.  There's nothing worse than needing some sort of information about a specific appliance and not being able to find the booklet that came with it.  So as we were unpacking at our current house, I gathered them all together.  I wish I had taken a before picture because the pile was quite something!  The first step was to go through them all and decide which ones were still relevant.  There were quite a few that could be thrown right into the recycling bin as we no longer had the item they went with.  That was a good feeling.  The rest of them were sorted and placed into two of these accordion file boxes we had lying around.  

I thought they would all fit into one but I was wrong.  There were too many of them.  Each section was labelled with it's content so it's easy to find.  No more searching everywhere when we need a booklet or brochure.  So nice to have this all together and organized!
