Americans are drowning in paper. We keep stacks of it on the kitchen counter, stash it in drawers, and store file cabinets full of documents. (In fact, one file cabinet can hold 18,000 sheets of paper. Yikes.)
Despite this clear crisis of paper, there hasn't been a book devoted to managing and organizing this single most abundant item in our homes--until now.
With The Paper Solution, founder of Organize365 Lisa Woodruff delivers a proven, step-by-step guide to decluttering the paper in our lives and sorting what's left behind into easily accessible, structured, and manageable files.
The Paper Solution system accounts for paper's unique qualities: its sentimental value, its ability to accumulate astonishingly fast, generational differences in how it's treated, and the fact that it's not going anywhere.
In The Paper Solution, you'll learn skills such as:
- What documents you must absolutely hold on to (your birth certificate)
- Which papers you can shred tomorrow (last month's phone bill)
- How to replace your bulky filing cabinets with an efficient system of 4-6 binders - making your vital documents accessible and portable
And at the heart of it all is the Sunday Basket® a box that sits on your counter that holds those stray papers and documents that clutter up your home. Once you've set up a simple system to toss everything into your Sunday Basket (and trained yourself to dip in just once a week), you'll have less stress, less mess, and more time.
