Since decluttering is top of mind this time of year (especially since the 40 Bags in 40 Days Declutter Challenge is looming around the corner), it seems like the perfect time to deliver a new post in the "No Brainer Things to Toss Series".
No Brainer Toss Lists to speed up your decluttering:
What better clutter nemesis to hone in on next than household paper piles?
Many of you have told me that paper decluttering is at the top of your To Do list. So I've put together a handy dandy list of 10 No Brainer categories of household papers that you can remove from your life during the decluttering process.
THE PAPER DECLUTTERING TOSS LIST
Back when I spent my days helping clients dig out from under their household paper piles, one of the biggest paper clutter culprits were file cabinets FULL of bank statements, utility bills and credit card statements that could all be easily accessed online.
Do your research and I’ll bet you’ll discover that you can retrieve a digital version of any one of these papers with the click of a few buttons. My rule of thumb is that if I can access it online, I don’t save a paper version of it.
Looking for an easy way to dramatically reduce home office-related papers? Carve out a few hours to switch from paper billing/statements to online alternatives. Start by generating a list of accounts that currently send you a paper bill/statement and contact each business to request the switch.
