Decluttering is a process and luckily its something that can be worked out! And now I am changing my sue of the word decluttering to EDITING. You can EDIT your messy spot of papers!
- Designate a spot for incoming papers. Papers often account for a lot of our clutter. This is because we put them in different spots — on the counter, on the table, on our desk, in a drawer, on top of our dresser, in our car. Designate an in-box tray or spot in your home (or at your office, for that matter) and don’t put down papers anywhere but that spot. Got mail? Put it in the inbox. Got school papers? Put it in the inbox. Receipts, warranties, bills, notices, flyers? In the inbox!
- Designate a time. Set a time to go through the inbox! Put everything where it needs to go. Alos includes trash and things to recycle or shred! If you need an organizer to help you set up an effective filing system, find one and hire them. (You can message me and I can direct you to an organizer)
- DO IT!!!
