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 do this too. I have a divided basket (of course! I sell them what else would I use!) ;) that I put in the bills and such that can't be thrown away. I also keep stamps and return adress labels and stamps right there with them so I never have to hunt for things when it is bill paying time. :D
