Could You Use a Personal Organizer?

Photo by Justin Louis

I was just having a conversation with a co-worker about how papers and such can get a little out of control in our homes. For me, the best part of the conversation was realizing that I’m not the only one who has that mysterious stack of old bills, magazines, and other assorted paperwork hanging around.

The conversation started when we were talking about Hoarders, and similar shows on TV. I always have sympathy for the subjects of these shows who obviously have personal issues, but of course there’s also a part of me that actually feels good because, after all, my place isn’t that bad. Lisa Leonard even talked about her New Year’s resolution to de-clutter.

It’s that slippery slope though, credit card bills from 2002, bank statements that have never been opened, electric bills that were paid months (or years) ago. But when I see those things I always end up thinking, “but what if I need that someday?” and it goes right back into it’s resting spot. I figure someday, when I move, it’ll be time for The Great Clutter Purge.

So how about you? Do you have a drawer, a corner, or even a room where your clutter ends up? If not, what are your strategies for avoiding the piles? Leave a comment below and join in the conversation!
