It’s time for the next step in the paper clutter challenge. If you missed step 1 and the introduction, read about the paper clutter challenge here.
I also want to encourage you to celebrate your accomplishments, so once you’ve finished a step, come to the Facebook group and let us know how it went. Or take a photo and post on Instagram with hashtag #paperchallenge.
So, do you remember that box of papers we gathered back in step 2? Well, it's time to tackle that! The task should be a lot easier now that we have so many systems set up. Each paper should have a clear home. If you don't have a huge backlog, you may be able to tackle this all at once. If you have a lot, you'll need to break it down. If that's the case, I encourage you to go ahead and put your paper sorting sessions on the calendar. (And, remember, you should always be processing your paper inbox at least weekly like we did in Step 4. You should never be adding to your backlog.)
