Reducing Paper Clutter (& a Giveaway from AboutOne) CLOSED

This week on LifeasMOM is all about Loving Life  — finding ways to help each of us enjoy life a little more. And paper clutter is one of those things that can just sap all the love out of life.
While I have seen some small successes in email management  over the last year, I must confess something. I tend to hoard my paper. I have phone bills from ten years ago.
Yes, yes, I do.
It’s terrible. My husband watches me file stacks of paper a couple times a year and asks, “Why are you keeping that?” Well, because my dad always did. It’s what you do, isn’t it?
Yet, although I have files and files of paperwork, it’s a lot of work to maintain and sometimes even difficult to locate the information that I know I have. That can be so aggravating.
Recently, though, I realized that if I can get a duplicate phone bill from the phone company, there really is no reason for me to keep one.
Yes, I know, genius, aren’t I?
In fact, I found out that I can get extra copies of utility bills, bank statements, and even scans of cleared checks — at all hours of the day and night — via the internet. It is an amazing world we live in. It struck me that if it can be digitized, it can be replaced.
And I don’t have to file it!
So, with this newfound knowledge in hand, I’m embarking on a new journey — reducing paper clutter. And if you’re with me, I’ve got a great giveaway for you this week from AboutOne .
