New here and have a question.

Hi Ladies:

This is my first post here! ?You all have so many great tips!

I have a question: ?What kind of mail organization system do you have? ?DH and I seem to just pile it and it is such an eyesore. ?I know I should go through it every night, but I just don't see that happening.

Thanks, Ladies!?

After 3 1/2 LONG years, 3 miscarriages, 2 IVFs and 2 FETs... we have been blessed with a beautiful boy!

  • 1. Sign up for as many e-statements as possible.

    2. Deal with the mail the second you walk through the door. I immediately put stuff through the shredder or in the gargage can. (Both of those are right by the door.) Only items that have to be dealt with or filed actually come into the house. I have MUCH less to file if I do this.

  • First off, OPT OUT of pre-screened credit card offers and the like by calling 1-888-5-OPT-OUT.  That halved about what was coming in before.  Also visit the Direct Mailing Association and opt out there (https://www.dmachoice.org/).   That leaves only the "good" mail to deal with.  In our condo complex, there's a garbage can right next to our mailboxes, so we trash anything that we aren't immediately interested in, and "shuck" the rest right there at the trash can.  Then, we have maybe three or four things to deal with which is manageable...
  • The junk mail goes straight to the recycling bin.   The "real" mail goes into a bin until I want to deal with it.   My bin is just a black plastic dishpan b/c it blends in with the shelf it is on, but you could use something decorative (a basket, a canvas bin, etc).    I can't stand piles of clutter in my house and the bin makes it look more contained.

    ?This 100%. It's better to eliminate as much mail as you can and deal with the mail you do receive immediately then having it pile out of control. It really doesn't take long to sort through the mail and the couple minutes spent sorting and going through it all is worth it.?My husband used to throw unopened mail in a Rubbermaid container. It took me a week to go through it all. He even had a Cingular bill..... not only is Cingular not Cingular anymore but he's never had Cingular since being with me. Don't put yourself through that aggravation, sort your mail!
