Organizing TIP of the WEEK:

conquer paper piles

    It's all too easy to let incoming mail, bills, receipts and magazines turn into piles of chaos. Deal with new papers first, no matter how high the old piles are, begin by devising a system for the new arrivals like a mail sorter, magazine rack or receipt filer. Make a plan, decide what to do with incoming papers and stick to it; sign it, pay it, forward it, scan it, file it or recycle it. But whatever you do, don't toss it into a pile! Next you can take your ancient pile through your newly devised system and haul out everything you don't need or won't read. It's time to conquer the clutter once and for all!
