Day 17 Getting Organised Challenge - The Mail Station
|Where did all this come from?|
I sorted the post into piles, to be recycled, to be filed and mail for Spencer to look at.
To be recycled
I removed all personal details from the post to be recycled, (note to self: buy a shredder) and cut them into teeny tiny pieces!
I then decided to use some the same labels Toni has in her mail station, I got a tub, some cute paper, rub on's and my trusty laminator and got to work. I'm going to keep an eye out for a nicer tub, but this will do for now.
I was feeling rather pleased that I had finally sorted this out, and put a system in place to make sure I don't ever need to spend 3 hours sorting out post!! I went to the dresser to find some card stock to make a cute label for the tub when I found this little lot.....
|What the fudge??|
It was at this point I wondered whether Toni has considered doing home visits, but a few deep breathes, a coffee and medicinal chocolate biscuit, and I was ready to then start on this stack of mail. Finally it was all sorted, hopefully I shan't be finding any more stacks like this.
Where possible I will be going for paperless billing, and will be looking into removing our names for those pesky mail lists that just send trash. Oh and buying a shredder, so anything we don't need can be shredded right away.
