Planning, Organizing and Decluttering Papers

Productivity and Planning.

1) Set aside a time of day. (Evening, Afternoon, Night Time) Whenever works best for you!
~If you haven’t sorted in years you will definitely have to take this chunk out of your time and schedule absolutely! Although, I do highly recommend everybody sets a time for this length no matter how many papers you have in your home.
2) Do it only when you are having a good day, do not try to do it and force yourself if you are in pain, having the worst day ever etc.
~ It is good to set aside time in your calendar, notes or planner. Despite the fact if something comes up an appointment, or you are in a lot of pain etc.
3) Start with the room that annoys you the post with Paper Clutter.
~Getting the first room done that annoys you the most, it will feel the most stressful for your first room. Although, you will feel 100% better when it is done! Promise! ❤
5) Start with only one thing at a time, do not overload yourself. This will Mentally and possibly  Physically drain you.
4) When your time is here Declutter or Organize every single Paper you find.
Decluttering The Papers:
Get Rid Of The Papers You Don’t Need:
