PROBLEM: The mail ends up all over the house. Someone brings it in, sets it down, things are placed on top of it, the pile gets moved, and I spend too much time looking for the bills.
SOLUTION: Have a home for the mail. It’s great to use a container because it clearly defines the home. The rim of the container can serve as an indicator – when the mail reaches the rim, it’s time to process.
HINT: Try to to wait to open the mail until you have time to deal with it.
