Welcome to Week 4 of the Summer Declutter (if you’re new here, it’s not too late to start, grab a freebie printable checklist here) We’ve got one more week to clean a hot spot in our homes, so let’s get started!
This week my hot spot is my kitchen bill paying “center” - also known as where the paper gets stashed. I have created a system that works for us for organizing the paper clutter, but life has gotten busy, and a couple piles have emerged. So, I turned on a favorite show, poured some iced tea and go to work. Easy and breezy.
This was a simple task for me because I have a system in place. If you don’t have a system that works for you for bill paying and paper clutter, I encourage you to set something up and experiment with what works for you in your home and with your family. I try to tackle paper clutter on a daily basis – it’s so much easier to touch paper one time and be done with it. When the mail comes, I open, sort and toss as it comes for a much easier system. If I keep up with my system, I don’t have to have a declutter session.
