Paper Basket on the stairs

I have not done a Works for me Wednesday post in a while, so here's one before the year is over...

I wish I had the budget to take the Organizing 101 workshop at Simplfy 101, untill then, I keep this basket on my steps, the incoming mail, school papers, notes, receipts go in it during the week and on Sat. AM with coffee in hand I tackle it, that way I only deal with paperwork once a week.

Here's to an organized and sane New Year!

I have tried this in the past but never pinpointed a time and day for sorting through it and so....failed miserably.

I like your gusto. I should try this again.

I have a basket also, but don't seem to get to it until it is spilling out. Good idea to pick a day. Thanks for sharing and HAPPY NEW YEAR

That is a great idea! I don't like dealing with mail and papers daily, nor do I have the time to do so! Thanks for the tip!
