    Post your mailDo you have somewhere to put the post in your home? Or do you end up finding unopened mail in random places? A post and stationery station will hopefully make it easier to deal with your incoming letters.You won’t be able to create a recessed area like this in 30 minutes, but you can easily invest in some wall-mounted pockets or box files. Remember to label each box in a way that works for you. A good place to start is by having a slot for each of the following categories: mail in, to action, to file, mail out.

    Open your postMinimise your incoming paperwork by opting for paperless statements and billing. Designate only one place for keeping all your paperwork. Set up a system for organising your post, with areas for different items: one section for letters that require action, one for post that needs filing, and another for useful information. Recycle junk mail immediately. Open all post on the day it arrives and pop it in the temporary sections. Try to deal with these once a week so they don’t accumulate.

    I will tackle my paper problemPaper is the one type of clutter that requires a lot of discipline. Paperwork can multiply very easily. Mounds of it not only looks awful, it becomes overwhelming.The only way to effectively tackle paper clutter is to look after it frequently. Certainly if you have a backlog, this requires extra time and effort, but for smaller amounts, a weekly or fortnightly purge and file is necessary to stay on top of things. Keep paper in one room if possible. If this isn’t an option, create a well-defined paperwork spot in each room to stop its spread. The kitchen is a good place for a ‘household administration’ zone. Seek out a good spot for a folder or expanding file and slot in papers you need to access quickly or frequently.
