Into the fire

This is a cry for help. HELP! I’m drowning in papers. Literally. The daily mail, the things from the school, the health care forms, the worksheets from writer’s classes…My house is becoming a giant paper bin.

1 week of mail

Everywhere I turn are stacks of paper.  I’m told my husband likes to keep an insane amount of paper- every bill, every gas company statement, everything. I have no system for keeping it all. We have files, but I can’t keep up. For a while we tried spending 20 minutes every Sunday before date night to file the weekly mail. We weren’t allowed to go out until it was done. It worked well, but we let it slip.

What do you do. Do you a little bit daily? Weekly? Do you keep everything or keep things digitally? Inquiring minds need to know.
