I am one of those people I admit that just has extreme difficulty in taming the paper tiger in my life. Oh don’t get me wrong I read all the books on how to do it all….I even pin pins on Pinterest on being better organized and a lot of them are great. Some are even too spendy for me like you have to get into a color coordinated system to sort it all out and no offense but some of these people in my opinion seem to enjoy spending their money on these expensive accessories and Yes their system’s look awesome but I really want to use what I already have and that’s not so much the issue with us the issue with us is us forcing ourselves to use whatever system we have in place.
However I still have some great blogs I have visited on this very subject that have helped me tremendously and some philosophies that I thought I would pass on to you.
I really have a very difficult time getting rid of greeting cards from close friends and family and one blog mentions that basically a greeting card is like getting a virtual hug in the mail and you can enjoy it display it for a few days and then discard it.
Here are some of the blogs that I really enjoyed:
Let’s face it paper clutter seriously ruins my productivity and it is something that has to be conquered for me to be more productive in my homesteading adventures!
Here are also some blogs on Organization that I did find on Pinterest that were really good!
My Office Studio Art Supply Closet (This one is very visual I am very far away from this of course ;)….)
I did invest in a new to me $7.00 shredder off of Craigslist and it works great! I have been shredding, and shredding. Luckily for me I already own two scanners and my Mom loaned me one to scan in some slides I have too.
So what about you? Do you struggle with taming the paper in your life? What are you doing about it? Or is this an area you have great success in? Share your tips and what works for you!
Have a wonderful Friday everyone!
