This is our final week in the paper clutter challenge! Congratulations, you’ve made it to the end. This week will definitely seem like a breeze compared to last week. This week we’re going to tackle all the loose ends and papers that might be left.
For me this included some random notes scratched on index cards and post it notes and “sentimental” items like cards. When it comes to sentimental items, I try to take photos of things I don’t have to keep. If I really want to keep something, I have a container that I put it in. I do hope to scrapbook someday (using Project Life), but I don’t keep up with that very well.
For all the other little notes that I have jotted down, I have a specific section in my planner just for notes. I either write them there or just stick the post it note directly onto the page. That way I don’t have random pieces of paper floating around everywhere.
Here’s a very short (less than 3 minutes) video for this task:
Great job! You’ve made it to the end. Leave a comment and let us know how it went. Also, let me know what other areas you need help organizing, so I can consider those for a future series or post.
