Paperwork clutter?

It's taking over my house!

We have tons of paperwork we need to hang onto but nowhere to actually put it and keep it organized. I need some ideas

We don't have an office or dedicated office space either.

Any genius ideas? :)

At my house we have a 'drop' basket. Basically its just a plain plastic little bin where we drop papers we either think are improtant, could be, would like to look at later, basically anything that is not readily recognized as trash. After a month or less depending if bills got dropped into it, we go through and pull out what needs immediate attention and permanent pieces of mail. The permanent pieces are placed in a tote bag and moved on top of a shelf out of sight. And any catalogs or expired deals go in the trash. Bills paid. The basket is significantly more empty and ready for more random drop offs. LOL. Complicated but I did all this without going to the store. It was stuff I happened to have.

I use a filing cabinet. Mine is older & a bit ugly but they have some really nice ones these days.

I have a filing cabinet. It's in my bedroom since I don't have an office either.
