52 Weeks of Organizing~Week 11

It's a little late, we had a middle of the night ER trip and I was very zombie-like yesterday!
Last week I was on a mission to find somewhere to contain the small but annoying amount of mail that comes for the Mr.  He usually doesn't NEED it right away, if ever, but doesn't want to recycle it right away. I don't want to hound him about it or dump it on him as soon as he walks in the door either, so this will hopefully be a nice compromise.

Had this little basket already, should be small enough to wrangle it.
It's not perfect but better than piles on the counter!

This week was supposed to be filing, but I did it with the other mail stuff. We use a container like this

Inside of it we keep this
We get one of the bottom ones every year. Instead of filing by TYPE, we just put everything from January in the first folder, February the 2nd, etc.  Once we file taxes we just put the whole folder in a safe place. We are almost to 7 years and won't be needing to buy any more. We can just rotate the old stuff with the new.

This week I am going to focus on refining our bill paying. Not too much different, shouldn't be a huge undertaking. We have too much fun stuff planned for Spring Break for any big projects!
