Paper clutter can easily sneak up on you. Paper clutter isn’t limited to your office either. I’ve seen paper clutter in:

  • Bathrooms
  • Garages
  • Kitchens
  • Bedrooms
  • Cars
  • Backpacks
  • Purses
  • Closets

As your San Diego Personal and Professional Organizer I suggest that you organize by room and focus on paperwork, only. Schedule 30 minutes on a specific date, at a specific time to:

  1. Discard, recycle, shred
  2. Sort, file
  3. Purge old files & papers.

Which types of paper clutter drive you crazy? Let’s identify the culprits…

  • Receipts
  • Unopened mail
  • Catalogs
  • Unread piles of magazines
  • Stacks of newspapers
  • Unclipped and/or expired coupons; circulars
  • Business cards
  • Handouts from meetings, conferences
  • Papers your children bring home from school
  • Never ending to-do lists, notes
  • Unused notepads
  • Unpurged files
  • Old tax records
  • Boarding passes, tickets, maps
