Do you have anxiety, worry or fear around which paperwork you should be holding onto, and which is safe to get rid of?
Does it make you feel stressed to go through your archival papers, or paper backlog, because you're not sure where to start in terms of throwing things out? Or how long you should be keeping certain documents?
One of the main reasons a lot of people don’t have their files organised is because they actually don’t know which papers they should be keeping, and for how long. Therefore, they hold onto everything 'just in case' they need to refer back to it, resulting in stuffed-to-the-brim filing cabinets, or completely disorganised systems.
Can you relate?
If you want to have less paper clutter in your home, and a really effective and efficient filing system - whether it's paper or digital - it's essential to know exactly what is safe to get rid of!
This is a topic that comes up a lot in my private Facebook group Home Balance (join here if you're not already a member!) and in emails from my subscribers. So I thought I would cover it in an Organised You Q & A episode! In this video, I'm going through 6 easy steps that will help you overcome your fear of throwing paperwork away.
I'm also giving some examples of documents you should be holding onto for different amounts of time. But my free paper purging guide, which you can grab on the button below, goes through every category in greater detail, so be sure to get your copy!
