Tackling the Paper Clutter!

My goal in January was to tackle all my paper clutter. I tend to be pretty organized but I also have a habit of keeping EVERYTHING! I keep all receipts, paid bills, statements....everything. And I have done this for years and years. Yeah, I know, sick right? 

I also realized that some of you need a simple way of gaining control of your paper clutter. Just one late payment can cost a lot of money in late fees and maybe even reconnect fees. This can be exasperating when the only thing that caused it was the lack of some basic organization.

And I know how frustrating it can be when you need to find something quickly, say the manual for your washing machine, and you have no clue where to start looking for it.
