How to Prevent Piles of Paper!

If you have piles of paper all over your desk, you're going to love this article.

The method is called FAT. I'm not sure who invented the acronym but it really works.

A piece of paper requires 1 of 3 actions..

1. File- A paper such as a bank statement that doesn't require you to do any action (usually) just needs to go in a file system. If you do not currently have a file system, a quick solution is to purchase an accordion file and label each section according to most common papers.

Also, if you hate filing and prefer piles (you can tell this by your current habits :), I recommend using the Pile Cabinet-check out www.best-organizing-products-superstore.com/prevent-piles.html)

2. Act-A piece of paper requiring action such as a wedding RSVP, or IRS form to be sent needs to go in an action file. An Action file could be simply a tiered tray on your desk labeled "To Call, to write, to enter in computer".

I like writing all of my tasks requiring action in a spiral notebook. I number them in order of importance and expect to complete about three tasks a day. This is a quick solution, no need to purchase anything fancy.

3. Toss- Trash!
