Ways to Organize Paper Clutter in the New Year


We can’t escape the amount of paper that shuffles through on any given day.  Thankfully, we've established a few systems to keep this paper clutter organized.

Create a Filing System

I made 3 piles: KEEP, SHRED, TOSS.  I then wrote down the keep categories and started to divvy up the papers using file cabinet folders and normal folders.

Track Receipts

I got a small accordion folder and labeled it with “TO FILE” and “FILED”. New receipts go into the first compartment & once inputted into my yearly spreadsheet, they're moved to the other category.


Buying a new house brings a lot of papers and parts for furniture. I labeled folders by room and and added the respective papers.

Extra Parts

I bought a storage box at Michaels. I then placed the extra parts in and wrapped some washi tape on them so I know exactly what they are.
