If you get lost under an avalanche of school notes, bills and junk mail here are some simple to manage the piles of paper.
Have a small box on the Hall Table near the front door. Everything goes in here ready to be redistributed
Give these papers a home. Every couple of days sort through this box and file school notes in a school folder or pop them on the family noticeboard. Bills go to the In-Tray and bin the junk mail.
Throw out paper that simply does not concern you, don’t let it pile up. Do regular cleanouts of paperwork to shred and forget.
