No Mail Clutter


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When the mail comes in, I stand by the bucket and go through it right then and sort it. The bills get put in one area for the day of payment; junk mail gets tossed right away; and then another pile for the things I looked at and want a longer look (magazines, catalogues, etc). I toss all envelopes and unnecessary paper right then and there

The longer look pile goes by my chair in the living room to look at while I watch the news and weather latter that day. Then it either gets tossed or put on my desk if there is something further I need to do (order something, further research or check with someone, etc.

    Always remember to remove your name and addresses from anything you throw away. Shred tear or burn them to prevent identity theft.

    Thanks for the great idea to eliminate clutter! All that mail piles up so quickly. Also a big chore if you let it go too long and you wind up putting it off. Taking care of it right away is the way to do it. Thanks again!
