14 Quick Tip: Labeled Butterfly Clip!

My calendar is a little jumbled this week, so I am popping in today with a super simple quick tip that I personally implemented recently and love.


If you only sort through mail every couple of days / weeks to pay bills and budget, keep specific types of correspondence clipped together within your mail bin using a butterfly clip {as you collect mail each day}.

I add Washi tape and a label to the clip so I can quickly find the stack I need when the time comes {Bryan loves this system also!}.  I mainly use this for bills but have similar clips labeled "To Do" and "This Week" for my planner as well.


Happy organizing everyone!

  6. Can you direct me to where I can see your "command center" and what you use for this area as a whole? I've been staring at a blank wall for way too long trying to organize something like this above our big desk, but need resources! I love the washi tape and label on butterfly clips- smart!! Thank you!

  8. Instead of holding onto a bill for payment, pay it through online banking. You can set up a time in the future where the funds can be scheduled to pay the biller on the due date. That way, you can recycle all of that paper right away. Oh top of that, get e-bills that show up in your email. That eliminates paper clutter altogether.

  9. What a great idea! Don't mind if I copy! Your mail center looks so organized, I would love to see this in more detail. Is there another post where you show the rest of it? And what is that lovely font you used for your names?
