How to Go Paperless

By Beth Zeigler, Houzz

After reading the comments from prior weeks' articles on home organizing, it sounds like a lot of folks are interested in living the paperless lifestyle. But as you can probably guess, no matter how much you want paper out of your life, receipts, bills and business cards will still make their way into your home. So it's crucial to deal with them by creating effective but simple systems for easy access later.

This means:
• Establishing an active filing zone
• Deciding how you'll digitize your paper
• Making sure you back everything up

You'll also want a plan for properly disposing of paperwork that now exists in the digital world.
