Managing Mail

Many of my newer clients have what I like to call ‘pile crisis syndrome©’ – It’s not pretty or necessary. Here are a few things you can do TODAY to stop this insanity:

  1. Use a letter openerEnvelopes mess
  2. Invest in a shredder
  3. Spend a few minutes each day OPENING AND LOOKING at your mail
  4. THROW OUT envelopes unless they contain time sensitive and/or legal documents (don’t stuff papers back into the envelope)
  5. Shred and recycle what you don’t want immediately – make sure to shred or ‘black out’ address information
  6. Flatten papers
  7. Get a step file
  8. Start file folders with the following headers


  • Immediate ActionStep File
  • To File
  • To Do
  • To Read
  • Taxes
  • Projects
  • Credit card / Applications
