Happy Thursday (its almost Friday)!!
It can be tempting to toss the daily mail and incoming papers onto a pile each day. Spending an extra minute, though, to sort it as it comes through the doors will have many benefits.
1. Invest in a small organizing system, such as a small bin with dividers, a divided basket, or a file folder with several pockets.
2. Place the organizer in an accessible location (the best is usually where the pile of mail sits). :)
3. Take a minute to sort the mail by priority or type. You don't need to read it all, just decide to which category it belongs.
4. Once a week grab each stack and act on, or file, each item.
It will only take moments each day to sort incoming mail, but that effort will help you pay bills on time, have a more organized calendar, and less clutter!
My basket sits on the kitchen counter for easy access. Where will you place the paperwork system in your home? I would love to hear!
