Getting Things Started. Create an orderly mail center in your house to help you get rid of your mail clutter.
First, choose an area. Second, stock it with supplies. Third, devise a system. Fourth, label the categories. Fifth, put the system into practice. Sixth, make it a regular part of your routine.
Make use of a collection basket or an inbox.
Utilize a collecting basket or inbox to keep track of all of your snail mail, printouts, stuff you think you might need, and odd documents that drift over your desk or throughout your entire residence.
Schedule time for the processing of your papers.
It will take some time to get through your collection of documents – especially if you have neglected it for a long period of time.
