Corral that holiday clutter before it consumes the house

(Continued)

Coupons

Carefully consider each of those postcard-size mailers that contain coupons or discount certificates from retailers. They are so tempting to keep "just in case," but chances are you won't need them. If you do receive a coupon that you know will be useful, either put it in your wallet so you have it when you go to the store or place it next to your computer so it's handy when shopping online. Discard all the others.

December is a busy month and not the time when most of us are motivated to get our papers in order. But reducing end-of-the-year clutter by doing even one or two of these things each day will make you feel better and might be the most valuable gift you can give yourself.
