Papers can pile up rather quickly if they don't get filed accordingly every day. Therefore, if papers pile up day in and day out in the same area .....it can lead to something like this (see picture below). :(
I created a step by step visual post on how I organized this particular case.
Life is hectic for most of us, cleaning up a messy pile can be the last thing on ones to do list.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week! :)
|This is a painful mess for the eyes!|
|First, I create physical labels for this particular organizing project. These labels are merely for visual purposes. It can help the process to make more visual sense and motivate to keep moving along with the organization process.|
|My next step is to create separate piles for each physical label. |
The particular categories for this project are:
Hard goods, school work, art work, admin and throw-out.
|I need 3 coloured folders and 1 extra, just in case.|
|These little plastic label holders come in really handy.|
|Let's start labeling with a proper pen :)|
|All done with the labeling|
|Now comes the fun part. I am placing the piles into their corresponding folders.|
|This step may seem inessential, however, in the contrary,I find this makes a vast difference in keeping things neat and tidy. Instead of leaving the papers all jammed, I turn them properly so that all sides fit nicely into the folder.|
|Voila, everything is organized and my eyes are relieved |
Thank you so much for reading my post and I hope I was able to inspire you. :)
