Paper is a clutter monster.
It is one of the hardest items to deal with when decluttering. Think about it…one paper pile could need up to 100+ decision to be made. And if you do make progress it could be hard to tell. While other items that are bigger can lead to obvious space clearing with fewer decisions.
So, with the annual tax deadline behind us for 2019, I thought I would encourage you to finish your process by filing away tax records and suggesting that you spend some project time on clearing out your archived papers.
To help you with that project you need to decide what records need to be kept and for how long. In order to get rid of paper clutter you do need to purge your papers. Focus on keeping records and not references. Note that you should always consult your accountant and/or attorney especially if you own a business and I am not endorsing any of the resources provided (well maybe the IRS guidelines).
