Project Simplify: Manage Your Paper Clutter

Paper clutter.

Although technology makes it easier than ever to communicate, pay bills and do business electronically, the amount of paper coming into our homes still seems to be increasing.

Arts & crafts. Bills & statements. School notices & records. Magazines. Junk mail. Paper, paper and more paper.

This week’s Project Simplify hot spot is paper clutter. I’ve shared quite a bit about our systems already, so I’m going to pull all those posts together here rather than reinventing the wheel. Be sure to visit Simple Mom for more strategies and to see what other people are doing to control their paper clutter!

Like any system, our systems for managing paper clutter continue to evolve, but they’re working pretty well so far!
