Automagically create annual month folders

On my computer, I’m in the habit of using lots of subfolders for my organization of reports and other output I generate from my financial software 1Quicken-killer Moneydance. I prefer to use a structure of month names inside the for the year, with forced chronological order.

For instance:

\Bills\subfolder1
\Bills\subfolder2

So I wrote an Automator script to do this for me automatically.  It took me a long time to get around to doing it.  I had been creating all these myriad subfolders by hand until now.

To use this, you save as a Finder service here:

~/Library/Services/create annual month folders.workflow

Then, in Finder you select a folder where you want to have the month subfolders created, right click and select Services and then “create annual month folder” and voila!

    Or, you could have created a blank set of them and then copied that folder for every year. 🙂
