Coping with Paper Clutter

The rumour we live in a paperless society isn't true. We have more paper than ever in our homes. Bills come with at least two sheets of paper, junk mail, school newsletters, quotes, statements and the list goes on.

Control clutter by asking the following questions about each piece of paper in your house:
Does it require action?
Can I identify a specific use for it?
Is it difficult to obtain again?
Is it recent enough to be useful?
Are there tax or legal implications if I toss it?

If the answer is "No," ask:
What is the worst possible thing that will happen if I throw this away?

If you can live with your answer, toss it or, even better, recycle it.
