    While people have problems with all kinds of clutter, the number one culprit is paper. Paper sneaks in as catalogs, junk mail, advertising flyers, and even ads in the bills. It is a seeming constant flow of clutter.
    #wearehere offering Tackling the Paper Giant, a training course designed to help you with paper clutter.
    Click and share this post with anyone who may need additional help to reduce and manage the paper in their lives.
