September/October decluttering tip...

A change of scene can help you fast-track your paper work.

I find when I'm really stuck on some paperwork it helps if I gather it all up in a bag and go to a café. I take a couple of spare bags along - one for recycling and one for shredding. As I settle down with a drink, clear from all the daily distractions, I find it easier to focus on what I've been struggling with at home. I wouldn't suggest taking confidential financial information to a public place - but if you want to sort out recipes torn from a magazine or look through your holiday folder or information from your kid's afterschool activities it can work a treat.

If you're stuck at work it can help to bring home office files to go through away from a ringing phone and a constant stream of emails.

Why not give it a go and see if it works for you.

Good luck
