Stay on Top of Paper Clutter: weekly quick tip
My command central binder is one of my favorite home organizing systems. This simple, yet effective system tames paper clutter by keeping regularly used papers organized and easy to access. It will save you time searching for important papers, and put an end to unsightly paper clutter.
If you’re drowning in paper clutter, take time this week to set up a household reference binder (a.k.a. command central binder) for your regularly accessed papers. Corral together papers like carry-out menus, sports schedules and phone directories in a simple three-ring binder. (You can get complete step-by-step instructions for creating your customized binder via my f r e e download How to Create a Household Reference Binder.)
If you’ve already received the download but haven’t set up your binder yet, why not make it your goal to spend fifteen minutes a day this week working on this project until it’s done? Or, if you’re already using a command central binder, take a few minutes this week to make sure it’s up to date. Create or update a list of emergency contact numbers, and weed out any papers that are no longer current.
p.s. Do you need more ideas and easy to use systems for your paper clutter?
