Sometimes you might not have time to sit down and sort new papers. So instead, bring the organizers to the space you use most often (such as your kitchen), so you can temporarily stash 'em away and won't lose them in the process.
Working on making this command center in my kitchen right now. Bought the mail holder today at Goodwill for $3.93 spray painted it black. Had an all white dry erase board I cover and spray painted the trim black. Already had a big wooden E I purchased at Goodwill a while back for $1.91. Have black frames already...just need the wire baskets and a big desk calender and we'll be set for business!
