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.

Control The Chaos-January Schedule

Controlling the Chaos Month 1 The Paperwork Monster

This is it!

2016 is finally upon us and it is time to dig in and Control the Chaos.

Because paper is the nemesis of millions of homes, my own included, paper is where we chose to start. If we can control the paper we have and get control of the paper coming in, so much more of our lives would be less chaotic.

We will have less missed appointments, last minute or day late birthday wishes, over due bills or missed out deals.  All of these will create less stress over all.

Below you will find the “Control the Chaos” January schedule both a printable version and an online version.

Decluttering Your Mind & Life a.k.a Controlling the Chaos

Why did we choose the title “Controlling the Chaos” and not a series on decluttering?

Because my hopes for this series include so much more than just decluttering and organizing.  I hope it will help me and others like me make lifestyle changes to reduce the chaos and clutter in our lives and minds.  I know the steps I have taken so far have worked wonderfully.

I hope this series will help guide you into making better choices and decisions about how you address everything that enters your life and mind every, single day From how and when you wake up to how you prepare for bed, from how you address incoming mail to how and when you pay your bills, create your budget and build your menu, etc… as well as removing and organizing the physical clutter in your life.

“Clutter” isn’t only something you can see but it is something you feel.
