    Erin Young: Hi there! My name is Erin Young. I am a Certified Professional Organizer with Clutterbusters and today we are talking about typical problem areas in most peoples homes where youd find stacks of paper piling up.

    All you need right now is just to open your mind, open your heart a little bit to think about and consider those areas in your home where you might find some unruly papers. Go ahead and grab a piece of paper and a pen and jot down some notes as we talk about, what typically happens when people come home at end of the day.

    In most homes, you find papers stacking up at the entrance way right by the front door, dining room table, kitchen table, home office space, by the desk, at the computer; this is common.

    What happens is most people come home, theyve got the mail, theyve got the kids, theyve got the cellphone, the dinner; what do you do with the papers? Just toss them where its convenient. Pretty soon it just stacks and stacks and stacks, and youve got weeks of piles and weeks of papers, and you just feel overwhelmed. What a lot of people do, when they have company coming over, they do the great paper bag disappearing trick, I think you know what I mean.

    You shut those stacks into a great big paper bag and throw it in the spare bedroom and close the door and walk away.

    If this is you, dont worry because were going to be talking about some very simple, easy methods that you can do right at home to manage your paper clutter.

    So, lets go ahead and get started.
