Take charge of your mail.
Every day the mail comes in. And often it sits on the table where you look at it and walk away.
Give yourself a gift of a shredder. Put it next to your table and then when the mail comes in,
attack. Open the envelopes, peruse the contents and then what are not bills and are not the charities you want to donate to, put the paper to the shredder.
This process will put a smile on your face. One less pile of paper you have to handle.
Then every week, empty the shredder's contents into a paper bag and throw it away.
