Tackling Papers

8 May

You may clean it off once in a while, but mysteriously it always reappears. I even have that in my house, and it’s mostly due to incoming mail. We have a good system that works; but even so, we almost always have some paper on our kitchen table. (I hope that makes you feel better!)
