Here's Where I Start With the Big Projects

To Make a Long Story Short: Gather your papers from all corners of your universe.  Dig deep: pull from bags, drawers, boxes, closets, piles on the counter, piles on the desk, and bring them all into one central location.  This will serve as your central sorting station.  Place them all in one mass lump so you can evaluate the paper situation honestly.  This makes for much more realistic planning.  Until you see exactly how much you have, you won't know exactly how and where to create stations that will last.

Helpful?  Please leave a comment!  Have you done this already?  Do you think you might even have less paper than you expect.  Do you think you might have more, once you see it all together?  Does the thought of seeing it all in one place stress you or give you relief.  Please share below!
