Syllabus for Organize Your Paper Clutter
My name is Aby Garvey and I’m the founder and co-owner of simplify 101. I created Organize Your Paper Clutter after working with countless clients who struggle with managing the overwhelming amount of paper in their lives, even in this “digital” age! This class contains the processes I use to stay on top of my own paper, and this is the same process I use to set up paper systems for my one-on-one clients. Now, you can get in on these proven ideas for a fraction of the cost of working one-on-one with a professional organizer. Here’s a peek inside each lesson:
Lesson 1: Laying the Foundation
You’ll begin by understanding your current paper situation and get a handy tool to help you pinpoint exactly where all your paperwork is coming from. Next, you’ll take steps to slow down the flow of paper into your home to ensure ongoing success in keeping paper clutter at bay. This step alone will dramatically reduce the amount of time you spend dealing with paper going forward and give you instant feelings of relief.
Lesson 2: The Paper Organizing Process: Collect + Decide
Learn a simple decision-making process to help you easily sort through all of the paper in your home – from the daily mail to your paper backlog. You’ll no longer feel confused or frustrated because you aren’t sure which paper to keep and which to pitch. Plus, you’ll begin managing your daily inflow of paper and digging out of backlog with ease and confidence.
Lesson 3: The Paper Organizing Process: Act + Store
Learn about storage solutions available for storing and organizing paper. You’ll learn how to choose the best solutions—those that will work for you and how you naturally do things, so you can stop wasting money on storage solutions that don’t work for you! You’ll also set up your collection and action systems so that you no longer misplace important papers, creating an immediate sense of control.
Lesson 4: Create Your Reference Systems
The focus of this lesson is on reference paper—paper you want or need to refer to regularly. You’ll learn how to set up a household reference binder and continue to tackle your paper backlog. You’ll get simple ways to organize your most troubling papers such as recipes, receipts and magazine clippings.
Lesson 5: Create Your Archive Systems
This lesson focuses on your archive paper—paper you want or need to hold onto for longer periods of time, but don’t need to access regularly. You’ll learn how to set up your archive systems and get strategies for handling school papers and kids artwork so you can save the precious memories without having your kids’ paper take over your home.
