Today’s the day to tackle that cluttered paper! Are you ready??? I sure am. Lets get this party started!
Mommy’s Paper Clutter…EEK!
I am going to open my home to you so I can show you the disaster on my desk:
There ya have it folks. I did it. I showed you my paper clutter. Yes I’m a super organized person, but when it comes to paper I’ve always failed to keep my paper mess under control.
My desk is pretty much the catch-all for all things paper work. The second the mail walks through my front door it ends up in piles on my desk. Generally I’ll get a lot of papers I don’t want to put away because I either have no idea what to do with them, I don’t want to forget about them, or it’s something I want to give to someone I’ll probably see soon. The ebook has solved all those problems. I simply have to implement the systems and I’ll be good to go (and you will too;))!
If you don’t have this ebook yet, then I highly recommend you buy it! It’s cheap and a wealth of knowledge that will revolutionize your life. It sure has mine.
Now Lets Get Moving!
All we’ll be doing today is gathering all our tax documents and putting them in one place. I had mine jumbled with all my other files in the top drawer of my 2 drawer cabinet. If you’re even less organized than I am then you may be working on this one longer than I did. Breath and focus on the task at hand. Refuse to entertain any thoughts that “it’s too much work” or “I don’t have time for this” (or whatever thoughts that hinder your progress…and they’ll come, trust me). Just focus on the task at hand
Here’s what the mess looked like in my filing cabinet:
Since I wasn’t really using the bottom drawer, I moved all of my tax documents into that one until we get back to it later:
It was very fast and simple for me, but if it’s not so simple for you because you’ve got everything slung all over the place, don’t worry! You can do this, I promise. When you’re done, you’ll be even more motivated to get the rest finished.
