In the Declutter Group we were talking about paper and what to do if you aren’t at home. You know those plastic or paper Accordion folders like for bills?
Before leaving home I threw a pile of papers that needs sorting in the front pocket. Then I have little labels – to read, to do, to pay, to file and any other project papers I end up with.
Then when I was waiting for kids or when I worked outside the home, I did quick sorts and a lot of time I could do the "to do" papers or pay bills. This really helped my paper piles.
