Controlling the Chaos-Sort, File, Shred, Scan and Organize Those Papers!

COntrolling the Chaos Daily Template

Sorting, filing, shredding and scanning is what we will be doing for days 6, 7, 8, and 9.

Yep, you read that right.

We are taking four days to sort, file, shred and scan our papers.  Remember you are to be creating, testing and labeling your new systems as you do this.

We are taking four days so that we have NO EXCUSES for not getting a handle on our paperwork before we present it to our families next week.

Still need inspiration?  Don’t be afraid to return to Controlling the Chaos-Day 5 for ideas and don’t put it all off until the last day.  The idea of taking four days is to remove the stress and be thorough in our processes.

My personal plan is going to work something like this (I hope):

Controlling the Chaos-Day 5-Creating Systems That Work For You

Day 5

Creating Systems That Work For You

COntrolling the Chaos Day 5 Create Paper Systems

Today we are going to plan and possibly create paper systems that work for each of us individually.  Yes, I said systems, plural.  The goal isn’t just to create a filing system that you drop things in and forget about for months at a time, but a working, useful system for everything.

Day 4- Gather those papers

COntrolling the Chaos Day 4 Gather Your Papers

 

Yep, you read that right.  Today you are simply gathering all your loose papers, magazines, previous calendars (wall and purse), receipts, artwork, etc…  I don’t mean the ones from 20, 10 or even 5 years ago.  I mean the ones laying around your house now.  The ones you had every intention of filing, paying, scanning,shredding, or using but never got around to last year.

Gather.every.last.one.

We are going to tame the paper monster this week!  By the end of next week every paper will have a controlled, organized home the minute it comes in your front door.

Take the plunge.  Try something new.

Change up your menu and try that “exotic” food you bought six months ago.

Yep, I am talking about that specialty item you have never been able to pronounce and have NO idea what to do with.

Google it.   Dig out granny’s recipe books and see if it existed when she made granddad dinner at home every night.

26 Very Simple Ways We Saved & Earned This Week

26 Very Simple Ways We Saved & Earned This Week

26 Very Simple Ways We Saved & Earned This Week

Last week’s 25 Ways We Saved had such a great response, so I decided to begin sharing our weekly saving and earning methods with you, each Sunday.

It will help me stay accountable to our goal of saving $5,000-$10,000 this year, and might even encourage or help some of you.

None of the things we do are challenging or earth shattering, and I have seriously considered skipping some of them.  BUT after deeper consideration (and prayer) I felt led to include them and encourage others.
