Controlling Your Paper Clutter


Controlling the paper that comes in my home is half the battle when it comes to my disorganization. If you're like me and you get too much junk mail to begin with, you may want to look into the Direct Marketing Association's DMAchoice website. DMAchoice allows you to manage the mail that you or anyone in the household receives through a mail preference service account.

Another great way to control the paper is to set up a paperless filing system. I bought the NeatDesk and I love it! It's taken a little getting used to, but it is a great tool for those of you who are a little more computer savvy. I now have those papers accessible digitally without the bulky paper files. I can set up my files in folders that make sense for my family and it is great for organizing receipts for tax time.

Check out The Container Store to see some great options for desk top storage. Additionally, Staples has a Martha Stewart Home Office line of desktop storage solutions that are stylish and affordably priced. For important papers that you must keep in paper form, check out this guide to conquering your filing system.
