I try to deal with paperwork as it comes into the house, but sometimes that just is not possible and I get slammed with paperwork.
I have a simple set of five steps to take care of those piles of paperwork.
1. Toss trash.
2. Distribute stuff for others.
TIP: Have a location set up for that purpose or put it on their kitchen chairs tucked under the table.
3. Put any information in my planner that I can.
4. If I cannot write all the information down, write the date/time specific stuff, the task, and WHERE the information is filed in the planner.
5. File anything I need to keep in my HOLD file, SHORT TERM file, or FILES in my home.
