mail

last night I decided it was time to tackle the bills. Which really means time to tackle the mail.

I'm not real good about reading my mail as it comes in. I try but there's too much of it. We pull out the personal mail and file the rest to sort later, most days. Besides, I'm an avid recycler, so I open most of my mail even if I have no intention of reading it, to separate those plastic windows from the paper.

So last night we put on a movie and had dinner and I opened and sorted my mail into recycle, throw away, file, pay bill, tax info, and a couple other piles. I swear it took me most of the movie just to open my mail from the beginning of the year. Actually paying my bills took much less time. It's just a ridiculous amount of mail.
