Your Friend the Wastebasket
If you want to conquer paper clutter, change your
attitude about your wastebasket. It is not an enemy who gobbles up all
your important data. It is your friend who needs to be nurtured and
fed. So feed your wastebasket.
In fact, buy several wastebaskets - one for every
area where paper accumulates. They come in attractive colors and
styles, but don't buy little teeny tiny dainty ones unless you have
little teeny tiny dainty stacks of papers. Mega paper clutter requires
mega wastebaskets. Lots of them.
Once you accept that your world won’t end when you
courageously throw out paper clutter, you will no longer be
overwhelmed, immobilized, and catapulted into procrastination by all
that reading material coming into your life. And you will have
something new to look forward to: the joy of feeding your wastebasket.
