One task that I absolutely hate is going through all the reams of paper that accumulate after a week or two of life. Mostly it is mail from the post office, but there are the other things like, notes to myself, study sheets and reports.
Here’s somethings that I find help.
- Open the mail over the trash can.
- If you don’t think you’ll use it, trash it.
- If you think you might use it sometime, trash it!
- If it’s advertising unless you absolutely need it and were already looking for it, trash it!
- Same thing with email.
Just like when you write, anything you don’t need gets omitted.
Anything that can go in the trash does.
