Like most homes, your entryway table is probably piled high with letters, magazines, brochures, and various other printed material that has a way of accumulating unnoticed. Despite your best efforts, you will find yourself overrun by these unwanted materials sooner or later.
This is actually one thing wherein constant vigilance and preventive maintenance could be helpful. Before the mail has a chance to even pile up, it would be a good idea to go through them regularly and sort the important ones from the junk mail. Not everything that comes through your mailbox should be kept, so don’t bother holding onto mail that you don’t have any use for.
You might even want to set up a sorting system so that everything is organized and easy to find. You could have a letter slot where you can keep bills, personal mail, and other items separate from each other. This will also help you find what you are looking for without having to dig through a huge pile of paper.
