Do it as you go

Today’s blog is a simple life tip.

Deal with things as you go along.

I decided to sort out 20 years of home filing today.

I spent hours recycling, then an hour with the shredder, then when that kept over heating, the sensitive stuff had to go one page at a time onto the bbq.

Three bank accounts, 5 different utility bills, phone bills, council tax statements, pensions, ISAs and so on, for 20 years.

Never again.

Open the post, decide to keep or recycle/shred. Repeat everytime post arrives. Once every 6 months clear the file and repeat.

Amazing at any age you keep learning new lessons.

Just keep the absolute minimum of anything.
