Clutter, clutter, clutter…we all have it but what to do with it? I seem to collect my mail, children’s school papers, and receipts into a pile. My pile grows and grows until it is about to collapse. At that point I finally take the time to sort my pile into three categories: urgent, important, and need to take care of at some point.
The urgent and important usually get handled in a timely manner but the ‘need to take care of at some point’ pile goes to the RED STORAGE BOX! Everyone in my family knows if anything makes it to the storage box it most likely will not surface for a good six months at least.
So how do we avoid the RED box? Set aside 10 minutes everyday to sort mail, children’s school papers, and misc papers. Commit to at least once a week to handle the entire pile…avoid the RED box!
