Three Ways to Stop Paper Clutter At The Door

Designate a basket or shelf area for mail. Keep a small recycle bin near your entryway, hidden under a foyer table for junk mail.

Open mail at the door. Immediately throw out the envelopes and filler, so that you’re carrying only needed papers to the filing system.

In the kitchen, have larger containers designated for specific paper collections like kids art, home work, and school notices. A three-tier drawer system or wall mounted file holder will let you sort papers, rather than absently pile them.
