How many piles of mail do you have at home? Do you lump every envelope together? Or do you separate piece into a specific pile? No matter what your mail routine is, it’s time to get better organized now. Few things are more unattractive than a tidy home with scattered and random piles of junk mail.
- Instead of separate piles all over the house, designate one mail area in a central location. This may be a hall table, an office desk or a drawer in the kitchen.
- File holders, baskets, and trays are all tools meant to help you. Create a system and stick to it. Maybe one tray for bills that are due now and another for bills that can wait.
- Start sorting mail while standing over a trash can, recycling bin or paper shredder. Immediately throw out, recycle or shred junk mail that you know you’ll have no use for.
- No room for mail on your table, desk or counter? No worries! There are plenty of clip boards and other magnetic gadgets that you can stick to the refrigerator door or a wall.
