I am really good about immediately processing junk mail, bills and magazines.
I don’t actually have a subscription to any magazine but I count the endless catalogs from Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Ballard Designs, etc.
I put unwanted advertising straight into our recycling bag in the kitchen. Bills and other important papers make it upstairs to the “office” in the Diva Room.
Current year paper gets filed in the file cabinet. Other stuff goes into a box in the attic that holds bills, receipts, and tax returns filed by year. This year, anything older than 10 years is leaving the premises.
My plan for the first 10 days of June is to spend at least an hour everyday shredding old documents.
Should I weigh the paper before I shred it?
Are you on top of your paper clutter?
