Have ONE Inbox for Papers
Go for simple – have one single place in your home for incoming papers. All papers will go here… paper mail from the mailbox, handouts from meetings, bills to pay, etc. Do not place any papers on your desk, counter, etc. All papers always go into the inbox.
Go through your Inbox regularly:
Pick up one paper at a time and do one of the following:
Step 1: Don’t need it? Recycle it. Shred it. Toss it.
Step 2: Is it quick? Do it now.
Step 3: Triage your papers
(Put them in the correct file using a simple vertical file box)
Add other folders as needed, but keep it as simple as possible.
