Clutter free in 10 minutes or less

I have a new genealogy tool that I think Lee and some others will appreciate: a cardboard box.

I'm going to clear off my desk by putting all of the papers in a box (or two) and only remove said papers when I am going to analyze/transcribe/scan and file them. This is going to cause some problems -- despite my mess, I know where (almost) everything is -- but I need to get in the habit of having papers filed and the desk clear of clutter. I'd also like to be able to use my scanner without moving several inches of paper each time.

What a brilliant idea! I wonder if you can get those in fashion colors these days? ;-)

Just wrap the sides in leftover Christmas wrapping paper. It'll be a gift to yourself that keeps giving, until you're finally organized. :)

Another fine idea! LOL... (Seriously)

I did that once. I moved the box twice. Finally sorted it out before the last move. So the papers were in the box for several years. I suggest keeping the box out where you can see it :-)

It'll be right next to me. Or under the desk so that I kick it every time I sit down.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one who uses their printer/scanner/copier as a place to stack papers! :-)
