Reconsidering Paper: Six Ideas for Managing Your Paper Project
The creed of the U.S. Postal Service might as well be “Neither rain nor snow nor heat nor gloom of night will stay these couriers from bringing more paper clutter.” The key cause of the pileup is that paper never stops coming—not a day goes by that we don’t collect more junk mail, bills, receipts, magazines, invitations, advertisements, and so on. The most frequent question professional organizers hear is: “How do I get all this paper under control?”
At the December 2015 meeting of the Houston Clutter Coaching Meetup, Gayle Goddard, professional organizer and owner of The Clutter Fairy in Houston, Texas, examined the habits and beliefs that contribute to paper clutter. She offered ideas to help you stem the tide of incoming paper, clear your backlog, and build a system to keep from ever falling behind again.
