Thank you for your “Tame your paper clutter” workshop! I am a tidy and pretty well organised person, but your workshop helped me reconsider my filing and how to maximise my time. I’ve already applied your advices and the 45 documents that were lying on my desk are now nicely organised in 10 folders: to do, to file, to scan, pending… It makes me feel so much better! And it gave me the motivation to scan the piles of paper that had accumulated for the last 3 weeks. It’s a huge success! Now I just need to learn how to declutter my digital world!
How to tame your paper workshop is a practical and solution-focused workshop with a lot of very good tips that you can put in practise right away. It proved extremely useful to me and I’d highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with piles of paper at home.
