Monday Madness-Paper Madness

DSC_0040 DSC_0041

This is what I collected at my house today.  I literally put every single piece of paper I could find in these baskets.

Do you have PAPER MADNESS at your home?

We used to.  NOT ANY MORE!

Once a month, I collect EVERY piece of paper in the house.

Sometimes there is a lot (like the end of the school year,) sometimes there are just a few piles to go through.

Today I searched high and low and came up with these three baskets full.


TODAY you are going to find EVERY piece of paper in your home.

Take a laundry basket or box and start at the front door.  Put every piece of paper you find in the basket.


Tomorrow, on Tackle Tuesday, we will talk about what to do with all this fun paper.

Some places where paper could be hiding that you may or may not of thought of: Office, kitchen counters, kitchen desk, taped inside and outside cabinets, front closet, table, bedside table, kids’ rooms, cars, garage shelves, family room, book bags, diaper bags, church bags, purse and maybe even the garage.

FIND EVERYTHING and tomorrow we will free you from your PAPER MADNESS!

For tomorrow:

Have baskets that you collected today, ready.  Carve out an hour or more depending on how much paper you have.

I’m off to do our task for tomorrow, so that you have pictures to see.

See you tomorrow!

  1. I have boxes (like photo boxes) for each of my kids and when they bring home their stuff from school it immediately goes in the box. When the box is full I sort through it and chuck what isn't worth keeping and keep what is. At the end of the school year I buy a big 3 ring binder with page protectors and one of the first projects THEY get to do is put their binder together with all the things they think is important. Once the book is full they have to get rid of the rest. (of course I oversee to make sure something I want to keep isn't thrown out) Then I have all the folders lined up in a cabinet in my kitchen. This is also great for trying to remember what kids are suppose to be learning. Just an idea of what I do with the paper
