A lot of our bills and other paperwork are now digital only, but we still get a lot of mail that needs to be filed away. Thankfully I have an organized filing system...
...which doesn't do me a whole lot of good when I let paperwork pile up for a year.
Finally today, I strapped on my iPod and settled down to file away that big ol' stack of papers. I thought, "Well, I don't have anything to blog about. Maybe something in this pile will inspire me."
Nope. You know what that pile was? A big, tall pile of boring.
And that is why I put off my filing. Insurance information, bank statements, and gas bills are so eminently dull. There are approximately 16 million uses for my time that are more interesting than filing papers. So I usually wait until the pile gets so big that it's really a big pain to try to find things in it. Then I wait a few more months and finally get around to the big task.
Once it's done, though, it really does feel great. So maybe I should do it more often, to capture that nice, organized calm every week instead of every year.
(Ha, ha.... Like that's going to happen.)
