The Timer Method

Not enough time to clean, organize, pay the bills, exercise, etc…etc. etc?? Try this easy technique.

Want to cull through that huge stack of mail sitting on your kitchen counter? Grab a timer (your phone will do!) Set a small amount of time: 5, 10, 15 minutes, open the envelopes with two simple piles, SHRED and KEEP. As quickly as you can place contents of those envelopes in one of the two piles. Do this quickly so if in doubt then KEEP. You can take time later to determine if you really need that item or not. When the timer “Dings!” Then STOP. Immediately shred the shred pile. Place the KEEP pile in a conspicuous location and when you have 5, 10, 15 spare minutes tackle that pile.
