Paper-paper. We are told that the tablets, watches, and other newfangled devices will soon displace stickers and notes, but where tkni — paper letters, catalogues, letterheads, etc., etc. What to do? How to escape from the tentacles of this Almighty paper monster?
THE PAPER IS NOT A PROBLEM. YOU
Paper fairies, which accumulates piles of paper trash, does not exist. Paper comes into our house in two ways. No, not through Windows or doors. We either print at home or bring her in the house. So first of all start to follow what you bring with you.
Try to grow a hawks with paper, ruthlessly banishing paper trash from the house. Think about it: these eat the stack space of your home, grab it slowly. When you understand this, antibodiesa a piece of your soul itself will prevent the cluttering of the house. Just start to wonder if you really need another pamphlet from the dental office or an art school, especially if all of this information can be found online?
SIMPLIFY THE PROCESS OF THROWING STUFF
Use the box for advertising garbage in front of mailboxes. It will be easier to throw that with which you walked or drove home, and you will remain only what you’ll actually read: magazines, catalogs, receipts, and invitations. You will not have to spend a lot of time sorting through the giant bales.
SELECT ONE (AND ONLY ONE!) PLACE FOR PAPERS
Maybe you can’t completely get rid of paper trash, but you can limit it. A simple tray or paper tray will help you with this. You’ll just fold the paper in there and sort them to the extent possible.
Where better to store mail? This is actually a question from the category where to store the milk or vegetables. Securities the location where they are needed. New magazines it is better to put on the bedside table or coffee table. Receipts in the special folder.
REPLACE MANY PIECES ONE BIG
Hang on the wall calendar for the month and make information about all the meetings, parties, plans, activities immediately after receiving the invitation. This will not only reduce the number of papers in the house, but will not let you miss the desired. And it is because of this desire we collect paper debris.
TAKE YOUR SEATS FOR PAPER TRASH
It is very difficult to save the paper where it will not fit. Empty space on shelves and tables to draw it. What if occupy these voids pictures, plants, mementos?
GET RID OF THE GUILT
Many subscribe to too many magazines and Newspapers, which as a result accumulate huge stacks. We look at them and begin to feel guilty for the lack of time to study the press. We want to make amends and hope that we will understand the reading later. And the piles grow. Reduce the number of subscriptions. If the new number has already come and the old has not been read, just throw away the old.
USE MODERN TECHNOLOGY
People are very afraid to lose something and not be able to recover it later. Unfortunately, 80 % of the securities that we hold, we will NEVER need. Still can’t part with the old Bank. Set up an Evernote account or simply scan what you think is important, and save on your hard drive. This can be done even with children’s masterpieces. Take a picture or otskaniruet them and create electronic photo album. Just think how much easier it will be to share them with relatives.
