We can't say we've conquered the paper piles. Truthfully, we don't think that it's a worthwhile goal to have NO papers around. For one thing, we would miss them.
If the papers aren't time-sensitive, is it even important to get rid of every pile in your house? What will you write on when you have to take a phone message or make a grocery list? You might get lucky and find an old grocery list that's close enough to what you need now, or an old To-Do List that still applies.
Besides, digging out is hard. Maybe you'll never finish. But if you insist on trying - we do have some tips that work when we feel the need to dig out.
If your pile is a stack of magazines that you wanted to read, but you don't have much time, try scanning the table of contents first. Then, select what you are going to read instead of looking at the magazine page by page.
