Houston, We Have a Problem

So...Simple Mom's "hot spot" for the Spring Challenge Project: Simplify was the paper pile.   "The" paper pile implies one paper pile.  People have one? I have multiple paper piles, stashed everywhere.  Stashed in the storage closet because I had to clean up quickly.  Stashed in a paper bag because my paper basket was over flowing.  Stashed under my bed because I brought a pile in from the car and didn't have time to deal with it...

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.

Oh boy...
