Organizational Realization with Paper Piles
I'm very organized & always have been, but the last few weeks have been quite crazy with family events, work scheduling, and misc life events which have caused me to let some things go...and it's going to be like this for a couple more weeks.
The paper piles have been accumulating in my kitchen. I'm tired. Life happens. It's fine. It's temporary & will calm to normal soon.
Last night, I was sorting piles and getting stressed over the various piles.
I found myself on the dark side, and I didn't like it.
I actually considered buying some sort of cool & slick file tray I could attach to the underside of my kitchen cabinet to hold the papers so I can find relief on my countertop.
I had this realization that I was actually spending time trying to organize and stockpile items to file which can just be put away for good when I take a moment to get that far.
WHAT THE HECK WAS I THINKING WITH THAT FILE TRAY????
**If I would have spent that time just putting away the things I was organizing and planning a file tray for...I would have been DONE with it.**
I was doing the very thing I hate. I told myself to stop organizing the to-file piles, and just file them. Get it over with. Take them from point A directly to point B without a middleman...AKA the "tray idea".
I just got home from work today and put away those things. Done. No need for that slick file tray, thank goodness.
Just wanted to share in the event this hits home with anyone.
