How to process paper clutter: 

Here’s what we cover in today’s episode: 

  1. Process immediately
  2. Make a weekly folder
  3. Pick a set time each week to deal with it 
  4. Process and throw out the REST!! 

Out of sight, out of mind: 

 If you struggle with trying to find a way to keep up on daily/weekly tasks I have two suggestions: Start using a planner or a daily disciplines sheet to write in those daily/weekly tasks! 

I personally use a daily planner to track everything, but I used to use a daily disciplines sheet on my fridge. I actually may try getting that out again. I have a free one you can download to keep track of daily disciplines here

  1. No idea what to do with bills and important stuff, but for kids’ artwork I have started taking a picture of the artist holding their masterpiece. (It gets printed in my chatbooks later) I love this because I only keep a select few pieces of the actual artwork and when i look back I can see how proud they were- and how tiny! Haha.

  2. We too are trying to get a handle on our paper clutter. Does anyone have advice about art my kids do? I don’t want to stifle their creative projects but the amount created piles up quickly!

    • I like the idea of having one file folder or box for each kid and storing away things in their boxes/folders! I know other moms who take pictures of their kids artwork so that they can always save it but don’t have to keep all the paper clutter!!
