Do you have a spot where all of the clutter collects? I know we do!Inspired by the success of my pantry reorganization project, I finally decided to do something about our clutter corner. My clutter was mostly mail that has to be eventually filed away, but instead of making it to the file box, it ends up in a pile. (Side note: while I'm talking about mail, did you know that every bit of your junk mail can be recycled? Maybe that was a well known fact, but it only hit me about a year ago.)
Here's the solution to my filing problem: First, I surveyed the paper pile and divided up the pile into six categories. Mine were pretty specific to the stuff we get, but your pile might consist of
- Pay Stubs
- Taxes (anything you'll need once April rolls around)
- Sermon Notes
And here's the final result! This project took me all of 15 minutes and cost only $3 because the file is on sale right now at Office Max! Eventually this paperwork will end up filed away upstairs, but for now it has it's own little spot and looks much neater than before!
Tomorrow I'll give you a little insight into how to control the baby clutter.
