It’s paper day! Dealing with your paper piles requires a unique approach that is more of a cousin to the four steps we’ve been practicing thus far. First thing to note: paper organizing has no end! Once you wrap your head around that, we can get started in building a system to efficiently categorize and stay up-to-date on the paper without becoming overrun by piles!

Do you remember, back in grade school, the frustration you would feel when you would ask your teachers, “when am I ever going to use this?” Their answers were never satisfying, because you didn’t care. You didn’t want to do it, no matter what they had to say. Well, people, here’s the thing: Sorting is like grade school math. You’ll hate learning how to do it, because you’ll want so badly to move on to bigger and better things. And still, you’ll notice that sorting is a common theme here on Taking Control. That’s because the simple truth is that sorting is the most important foundational skill you can develop in your efforts to become a better organizer, and take control of your space and time. When you sort, you are exercising so many different muscles; time management, decision making, motivation and focus, all things that serve and support you in the whole organizing process. Today on Taking Control, Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright share three facts about the sorting process to help you navigate the changes to come this holiday season.
It's the last Taking Control for 2012! We're gearing up for a few weeks of break around these parts for rest and recharge, and to dig in to some great new year organizing projects around the house! As such, we thought it a good time to review a few key questions you should ask yourselves before you do the same. This week on the show, Nikki Kinzer and Pete Wright share the questions and reflections you should process before you start your sorting and organizing. From the team at TCO to you and yours, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
