October Habit #3 Paper Clutter Monster

Dear FlyLady,

I’ve been working at flying for about a year and a half at home, and  in September started to break my office into zones to try FLYing at  work, too.

During de-cluttering my files, I found some prescription drug  receipts from February last year. That would be over 18 months ago. I  don’t know how they made it to a file folder in my office from their  usual home (sitting on top of the microwave! OK, so maybe I need the  paper clutter reminders a bit LOL!).

They totalled over $165, and if I had sent them in to the insurance  company I would have received a check within a couple of weeks.  Instead, they got lost in my paper clutter and it’s now too late to be reimbursed for them (I tried…).

Thanks for all that you do. If I wasn’t already convinced that the paper clutter monster was a problem, I sure am now!!! I am so glad that you’ve decided this is our October habit!!!

Heather,
FLYing in Ontario
