This is my first week participating in The Lazy Organizer’s Smart Habit Saturday! It’s hard to choose just one new habit to work on, when we are all constantly finding little ways to improve our time, finances and lives.
The habit I’ll be tracking in April is scanning. I have been working on the files, piles, storage boxes et. al. of PAPERS which have ruled my life for so long! My family was given a scanner by a relative and I have been digitizing all the paper in our home so I can throw it away! With such a backlog, and considering that I have only scanned roughly 3000 pages so far, it is a slow and daunting project.
To make it easier to keep up on, I will do 10 minutes of scanning each morning. That should take care of some of the back stockpile of papers! And I will scan all the papers that come into the house EACH day immediately. That means when I get home with the mail, I will scan it right away and throw the paper in the trash. That way the backlog won’t get any larger, and I’ll make a little dent in it each day!
I can’t wait to check in on my new SMART habit next Saturday to give everyone an update! And cheers to my friend, The Happy Housewife, who has given up her soda habit!
