I751 - File building

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm finalizing my file and I have some questions :

- Are you using a highlighter pen to show names, adress in order for them to catch the informations quicker ( with so many documents)?

- Did you put your A# on all documents

- What method did you use to assembly the file ( ACCO fasteners?) ?

Thanks for your help.

1) No.

2) No.

3) A plain manilla folder

Relax.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

I'm working on our now as well.

I plan to highlight names & pertinent info.

I did not put the A# on the documents, I will double check the directions today. Unless they request it, I won't put it.

I haven't decided yet. Probably, just a large binder clipor a 3 ring binder (Its not really recommended, but I used it for K1 & AOS, with no problems)

I did highlight names and addresses and dates --- with yellow (other higlighters do not photocopy)

I hole punches on top and used an ACCO fastener and separators in the bottom.

We did the same thing. :thumbs: Since it was all together with ACCO fasterners, we did not put the A-number on every page. :no:

Hi!

I just finished assembling mine and I am just making a copy of the packet.

- I did highlight the main point of each page i.e. both names, address, etc.

- I did put my A# on all documents- I have heard stories about documents getting lost, put in other files, etc. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

- I did use ACCO fasteners and I used dividers to put between each section (but cut off the plastic part). I then used post-it tabs along the bottom to mark my sections.

Hope this helps!

Snap Jashley820 ~ I did exactly the same.

I divided each section up by year starting from when we got married: 2006 supporting docs -divider- 2007 spporting docs -divider- 2008 supporting docs -divider- 2009 supporting docs.

I highlighted, I added my A# on every single dang page, I included a cover letter & a contents page.

It was a hefty, hefty, hefty package!

But read through other threads on this topic, some people have had success on much less. Just make sure the essentials are in there, I think that's the really important part. :thumbs:

Bear in mind that for many highlighters once photo copied they turn the text black rendering it illegible. Personally I wouldn't be highlighting anything.
