The daily mail doesn't need to overwhelm you. If you process the stuff that comes in each day, you can keep clutter at bay and stay on top of bills, invitations, and other paperwork. Here's how to take control.
I’ve found that when archiving material that you will need later, I will put a note in my calendar about where I archived it. I’ll say something like “yellow Human Services folder” or if I’ve saved it someplace on the computer I make a note of the exact location. It’s intuitive when we archive the materials, but no so much when we have to recall where we archived it two months later.
I keep a plastic shoebox I immediately put the junk mail in. This is the box I used for my recycled papercrafts. Newspapers get a fast once over and then they're in the trash unless I need a few in my craft pile so my painting and gluing doesn't end up on the rug.
