No matter how many organizational systems you have in place, certain piles can creep up, especially when it comes to paper.
“Paper clutter is one of the things most people have a challenge with, even very organized people,” professional organizer Monica Ricci said.
Paper can accumulate when we print recipes, store receipts and clip out articles. Paper clutter also can come from outside sources such as mail, catalogs and children’s homework.
Using Pinterest is an easy way to clear up paper clutter—and keep it out. For instance, if you find recipes online you might want later, don’t print them out, Ricci said. “Instead, pin those items to a Pinterest board where you can access them from any computer or mobile device,” she said.
