Yay! Did it.
Step three of my paper sorting exercise was to put like with like, categorise the papers back into piles. Step four was to deal with each pile in turn. Take action/file/discard. It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would.
I have a one drawer filing cabinet and the next task is to go through that one file at a time discarding as I go....Runnng a home is like running a small business.
Once we stop wishing it was summer, winter can be a glorious season when the world can take on a sparse beauty. It's a time for reflection and recuperation, for slow replenishment. It's a time for putting your house in order.
