When I decided to make goal #3 to organize more, there was NO question where I wanted (ummm... NEEDED) to start - my office!
You can read all about it in my post HERE.
I decided to start my organizing by tackling paperwork.... LOTS of paperwork. I love the Fellowes W-6C Paper Shredder!!
I have to recommend this shredder wholeheartedly. We have shred bags and bags and bags of papers without it jamming at all. It cuts multiple sheets at a time and even cuts credit cards. I have had it overheat a couple of times, but it is not intended to be an "industrial strength" shredder like I have been using it. Once we get all of the backlog of paperwork shred, it will be as simple as shredding papers as they become irrelevant.
It is amazing how much paperwork you accumulate over 16 years of marriage. What a liberating experience to be free of all those piles of paper! I am in the process of setting up a bill paying binder, a filing box for each of the kids special "stuff," and a single filing box for our taxes and must-save documents. I will be sharing those with you soon as well.
The best part is that the ratty, broken filing cabinet is empty and I got several boxes emptied out of my office.... YAY!!!
Have a Blessed Day!
