Declutter Quick Start – Day 5 – File Paperwork

It’s Declutter Quick Start – Day 5 and today we’re going to finish the challenge by filing our paperwork. This challenge is intended to help you get started quickly with minimal effort. Day 5 – File Paperwork – Set a timer for 10-30 minutes and file paperwork from your sorting. Don’t get bogged down with the process of setting up a filing system if you don’t one yet. Start with an in and out basket or a paid and not paid basket or bin.
