Do you toss the mail on the counter in hopes of getting to it later? Something that will save a ton of time in the long run is opening your mail as soon as you get it. Open it at the recycle bin. Tear off the addresses of everything that is being recycled so you can shred them. Otherwise, just grab what you need and drop the rest in the bin. 5 minutes tops. No more piles that get bigger and bigger as they wait to be sorted.
