Tackling the Paper Piles
Paper seems to pile up quickly around here. Running a household, an in-home childcare business, and a homeschool requires some serious clutter control on a regular basis. I am the queen of throwing things out. However, when my husband and kids started asking where their "so-and-so" was, responding with..."Ummm...In the Trash." started getting me into deep water. So I have come up with some systems to contain the paper mess. Here is my before picture. I piled everything onto the dining room table and spent an hour or two (during naptime) sorting, tossing, and containing. The result...sweet success!
