I have today and tomorrow off. It seems like every minute of every day off needs to be maximized. Remembering to spend time with my kids, husband, friends and family while still devoting time to decluttering. Today I went crazy with the paper shredder. I’m still trying to figure out how to organize our families constant influx of papers. Mail, school work, pay stubs etc… take over flat surfaces. Today I won some of them back.
The next step will be deciding on a mail/random paper system that will work for both me and my husband. It could either be really small mail organizer right beside our front door or a larger one on our hallway wall that is still part of our open concept kitchen. We wouldn’t be able to see it while in the living room so it wouldn’t be toooo obstrusive. I like the idea of having a chalkboard to keep the family organized. It could even have a calendar on it.There are so many options out there.I may just put in a little mail center until I make the big leap to a large item.Maybe I could even make my mail organizer. The one below is a transformed record. Now that’s zero-waste!
I guess we will be making a trip to Staples.
How do you organize all of your mail, reciepts etc…?
Tomorrow the adventure continues. I need to finish painting the bathroom and do a million other things. Wish me luck!
