Christopher Lowell's Hoarder Profile 4

The fourth profile from Seven Layers of Organization is: Keep It Till i Read It Pack Rat.

Does this synoposis describe you?

Profile 4: Keep It Til I Read It Pack Rat:

You are willing to throw things out...but not until you read them first (whether it's coupons, books, articles, magazines, newspapers, online things you've printed out, etc). Here's how to tame that trend:

1. Only keep material dated with that month.
2. If you've never referenced an old item, recycle it.
3. Get a file system. Then sort your items in a way that makes sense to you and for you to be able to reference again.
4. Have one basket of items to read. When it's full, you can add no more. So, either read something in the basket or toss the item that wants to come in.
