OK. Today's confession is a little embarrassing, but oh well here goes. I AM A MAIL PILER!! I pile up the mail and pile up the mail, until it's everywhere and I have to start doing something about it. What do I actually do about it you ask? I start going through it and throw stuff out, I sort it, and then I put it in another pile to never get looked at again until I have to clean it up again. It's really, really sick. When I have to find mail that I really need, I have to sift through a ton of letters until I can actually get to the one that I need. Sometimes when the mail pile gets too unsightly and I can't stand to see it, I put it in a bag and then it goes somewhere out of sight. And you know what they say, out of sight, out of mind! Well then it goes from a mail pile to a mail stash.
I beg my husband to go paperless for all of the bills, but for some reason, he LOVES his paper. Funny thing is that he pays them all online. I have opted out of receiving paper for all of my bills. Ah well, the life of a mail piler. (maybe the real term should be hoarder, but that sounds scarier)
Do we have any other secret mail pilers? What do you do with your mail? Any tips for me? Is there a such thing as Mail Pilers Anonymous with a 12 step program? I think I've just admitted to the world that I have a problem. Don't be afraid, come clean. It's therapeutic.
By the way, this image is my actual current mail pile!
Oh well, we can't be perfect.
Ciao 'til next time,
