I scan any paperwork where I don't actually need to keep the original, then it is there on the computer when I need, neatly filed to be easily found. I only keep a very limited amount of documents, like birth and marriage certificates and tax stuff and that kind of stuff, any thing else can be scanned and then the original shredded.

Some excellent ideas here. No matter how organised you think you are there's always 'hot spots' building up somewhere!

One tip I've picked up is to set a timer for 15 minutes and just start in one room or area and clear out/organise as much as you can before the timer goes off - it's not so overwhelming as trying to sort everything all at once!

The Clutter bucket idea is very good - especially if you've got a young family!
