Dealing with Mail Clutter

I forget where I read this recently, but I thought it was a great idea. Don't put any mail down. Either dispose of it or open it and put it where it goes as soon as you get it into the house. Half of it will be thrown away immediately and that will cut down on the paper mess. The rest you can open and toss the outer envelope and put the bill where it goes, or read the letter right away and put it somewhere to respond to.

I stand by my shredder and do this. It's on the desk right by the trash can. I shred anything with our names on it. I have a notebook that I keep our bills in. One pocket is for bills that go out on the 1st and one pocket is for bills that go out on the 15th. If I don't do this daily it all piles up on top of our printer on the computer desk. :(
