Happy Valentine's Day

Hi everybody

Please feel free to leave me a comment. I'd love to hear from you.

I am so excited that we're all getting organised. I've heard from many of you and am very pleased about all the decluttering going on. Excellent work - keep it up!

Week 2's challenge is to ...
File all accounts, invoices, salary slips, etc. on your desk or your telephone table. If you don’t need to keep it, throw it away!

When you first bring the mail into your house/ flat, don't even think of putting any of those envelopes on a flat surface like a table or desk. Open your letters over a wastepaper basket, throw the envelopes and junk mail away IMMEDIATELY and only keep the actual invoice or account. I then write a date in my diary two days before the due date and exactly how much must be paid, e.g. for Thursday 16th, I have “pay water and lights R566”. You can then pile up your papers until your weekly (!) filing day.

Now, take 15 minutes and quickly punch and file your stuff. Don’t obsess about it. You can do ANYTHING for 15 minutes.

Let me know how you’re doing…

Enjoy organising
