This is not a five day task for me! Since the project was announced 6 days ago I've made decent progress. It will be another 3 or 4 days before I'm willing to post "after" pictures. Here are a few pictures of the train wreck as it was on March 14:
Above: A Stack spread out of the dining room table for sorting
Another stack shamefully hidden in the basement storage closet
Yet another stack. Once in the bottom of my closet, now stashed in location #2 awaiting judgement
A fab file cabinet. Full of paper...clearly more paper than one household needs to keep.
