To thin your paper piles, think….
- File: historical or critical documents asap; Historical things are papers you may need to keep like taxes, as well as special things like family photos. Critical things include birth certificates, deeds, titles to property. **
- Act: prioritize whatever needs immediate attention asap. For less paper: Automate monthly bills. Things likes utilities, rent, car payments may be paid online and the bills emailed, saving time and paper.
- Trash: solicitations and ads immediately. They will send you another and another….
Mark through bar codes and write REFUSED/RETURN on unwanted magazines and put them back in the mail. You may get a refund.
Burn or Shred: Have a shredder or burn box for any item you are concerned about trashing.
