Introducing the Great Paper Purge Challenge!

Is your home or office in need of a paper purge?

With school starting many homes are inundated with a barrage of paper clutter: class schedules and information, sports scedules, lunch menus, contact lists, permission slips, registration forms and more. 

If you're feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of managing all those papers join others here at Step-by-Step Declutter for September's Great Paper Purge challenge. 

Maybe you don't have kids or your kids are grown and on their own.  That's OK.  You've still got paper, right?  Chances are you've got more than you'd care to deal with.  If so, this challenge is for you as well. 


Here's how it works...

Make a personal commitment to purge the excess paper from your home or office over a 30 day period.  Once you've made the commitment, it's time to get busy purging papers.  It's that simple!

Use the information you find here at Step-by-Step Declutter and the experiences of others to guide you in your endeavor.
