    • Tackle organizing tasks one small step at a time.
    • If you haven't worn it in two years, get rid of it.
    • Remove articles or recipes you want to save from periodicals and put them in a binder.
    • Set up a space to open and sort the mail every day with a recycle bin nearby. Glance at it enough to know what it is, but don't read it. Toss, file or take action.
