Woohooo - it's time to tackle the paper!

This month we'll be decluttering home offices and today we're starting with one of the absolute major organising challenges ever - PAPER.

In fact, a couple of years ago, I asked the readers of this blog what their biggest organising challenges were. The overwhelming response was paper and all things office - email, computer, desk, etc.

And so I wrote 7 easy steps to organise your office which, almost literally, flew off the virtual shelves.

I know it's still the same out there because I get all your emails :)

If you don't yet have the 7 easy steps to organise your office MP3 and ebook system, then read through a couple of the posts below to get some ideas.

Here are the posts...

  1. Paper, paper and still more paper
  2. Dealing with mail clutter
  3. Paper decluttering
  4. How I deal with all the paper

(if you don't want to post on the theme, go right ahead and post on whatever you felt like decluttering :)


Here is my contribution for this week

Categorising and sorting into the different files

After - aah, the bliss

Now tell me, did you declutter anything today?

Have a look at the Organise your Home e-course and get your entire home organised in just 12 weeks.

Now for this week's challenge

Please link to the post on your blog where you show off your pictures and talk about what you decluttered. If you don't have a blog, tell me in the comments about
ANYTHING you decluttered this week.

It can be anything - physical, electronic, mental clutter or even the need to be a certain way. Like perfectionism! :)

What did you declutter this week?

Paper documents need to be organized so that you can easily locate the files that you need for school or work. Credit billings, unsorted mail, receipts and personal records can create clutter and you will not be as focused as you should be. Aside from that, you would not notice if you have duplicate copies because your paper documents are not filed accordingly. This is such a waste and this is what we need to avoid. Printing paper and other kinds of paper products can be shredded, reused or recycled - in this way, we can still save copies of our important files but it is not being wasteful.
