Episode 030: The Never-Ending Mail Pile

No matter how organized you are, the constant inflow of mail never ends. You can count on it daily. If you aren’t staying super consistent with purging the junk mail and organizing the rest, it can quickly take over your countertops and drive you crazy! 

Here are this week’s 3 E’s to keep your mail organized:

Essential: purge/shred any junk mail before it even comes into your house. Cancel any catalogues, magazines, or subscriptions you aren’t using anymore to eliminate extra mail clutter.

Enhancement: handle the mail as fast as you can! Don’t put off paying bills, RSVPing to events, filing important documents, and shredding/tossing the rest.

Extra: put paper organization bins in a place that’s convenient. Designate a place/container for gift cards/coupons, memorabilia, important documents like tax info, items in limbo, “to-be-filed” paperwork, and permanent paper storage (lock boxes, file folders). Have a space for each member of the household.
