Systems for Organizing Your Mail
Create a Filing System
- To keep bill paying from being married to a particular room (and feeling like such a chore), devise a portable filing system that will let you work anywhere you like.
- Stash a checkbook, pens, stamps, and envelopes in the back pocket of your organizer so you don't have to hunt for them when you're ready to go. Download the How to Get Your Bills Under Control worksheet.
- Label the file pockets in a way that works for you, whether that's day by day―marked 1 to 31―or a pay-this-week and pay-next-week system.
- Then decide on a good time to tackle the job―such as during commercial breaks in your favorite TV shows, suggests Rita Emmett, the author of The Clutter-Busting Handbook ($12). Chopping bill-paying up into manageable bites helps make shorter work of it.
