I NEED HELP WITH PAPER ORGANIZATION
HELP!! I literally could be buried in paperwork!! I home school my six children and sometimes I drive to the bus to go to college. I also drive and pickup my husband from work, even though it's not far, it's still a time stealer!
Okay, I tell myself I am going to commit so many minutes a day to working on a box of papers. I really try, but the kids always interrupt me! THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR SO LONG, I see no way out.
In the past, I've tried hiring organizers, but they were so fast, my head was spinning. I get so overwhelmed with all the papers! Plus I am so confused as to what to keep and throw out. I need simple terms, not terms such as active and inactive paperwork! How do I know what is and isn't active or inactive?
Yes, I have also tried having my husband watch the kids so I can get some work done, but there are so many areas that need my attention. My husband doesn't help either, he's like one of the kids and leaves his "trails of stuff" everywhere.
I do have some help from my youngest daughter, as she a lot of our meals, but I do not want her to resent it later.
Another area in need of help is our home school books. We have a small house, so it tends to clutter fast if left unchecked. I was so embarrassed some friends came over and I COULDN'T EVEN LET THEM SIT DOWN as there was too much stuff in the living room! Please help!
