I'm not an organizational guru. I'm a mom who sometimes opens the mail while the spaghetti is boiling over and a two year old is hanging on my leg.
So in my counter organizer I have a slot labeled "action" and another labeled "file". When I open mail I put things that require a response from me, such as bills or party invitations, into the "action" file. Things that can simply be filed when I get a chance, such as bank statements, go in the "file" file.
It's simple, it's tidy, and it works for me.
Do you have a system for dealing with incoming mail?
