Now that fall is here in the Eastern Panhandle area, along with it comes back to school season, back to hectic schedules, and piles of accumulated paperwork. Kids bring papers home from school, sports schedules scatter on tables, with busy schedules, mail doesn't always make it into one organized place— so what do you do? How do you manage to keep your homes on the Eastern Panhandle organized and clear paper clutter? With these tips, your home can be free of unwanted papers and especially if you're looking to sell your home in West Virginia, a clean and organized home can help entice homebuyers when they come to view your piece of Eastern Panhandle real estate.
Prioritize Your Mail
Deal with mail right away when it comes in— discard what you know you do not need and keep what you do. It's easy to throw the mail on the counter when you get home and toss it into the "I'll Do It Later" pile, but dealing with it right away can cut down on unncessary clutter. One great tip is to sign up for online bill pay and paperless statements to cut down on this type of mail.
One way to cut down on paper schedules is to manage a centrally-located calendar, maybe a dry-erase type for easy editing, and compile all events, tasks, and appointments onto the calendar. This is a great way to cut down on many different papers by compiling them all into one easy-to-locate place and an easy way to visualize one's schedule in the context of other events.
Really Organize Your Life
Invest in a file folder and really get down to organizing tabs by types of mail— taxes, receipts, statements, insurance, utilities, credit cards, and the like. The important step here is to have a go-to place for each type of mail and paper and a place to keep back records of past bills, statements, and receipts. For any papers that aren't file-worthy, create one more file for shredding and recycling.
Clear the Magazine Clutter
Magazines and newspapers can quickly take over your Eastern Panhandle home. One rule of thumb is to read them once, cut out what you want, file it away, and throw them out. Another is to swap them with friends or co-workers to keep them cycling out of the office, rather than sitting and collecting dust and other papers.
