Week 14′s challenge was to organize your magazines, newspapers, and catalogs. I get several magazines in the mail. Once I’ve read them, I do one of two things. For two magazines, I put them in the spare bathroom as reading material for guests (we have a basket). I only keep the last two months of issues; I recycle anything older. For the other magazines, I recycle them after reading them. My mom also gives me several of her magazines, which I recycle after reading. We don’t get any newspapers, and we recycle any catalogs (which we don’t get too often).
Week 15′s challenge is to organize passwords, warranties, and manuals. I already have a system in place for storing my passwords so that I don’t forget them and it’s set up in a way that no one would know what my actual password is (it just provides a hint to me so that I can figure it out). As for manuals, I keep them in a magazine holder in the closet. Whenever I get rid of a product, I’ll get rid of the corresponding manual.
