Most people would love to go paperless, but with that intimidating mountain of paper, how does one get started?

Next, figure out what you need to shred instead of throwing it out and set them in their own pile for shredding.
Next, if you need specific documents, don’t physically store them, get them digitized by scanning and saving them on your computer.
Another obvious place to reduce future paperwork is to convert as many of your accounts as you can to the paperless option when available.
