Open the mail.  Deal with the mail.  It’s as simple as that.


  • leave mail unopened
  • guess at mail contents, you could be wrong
  • leave mail scattered throughout the office or home
  • allow piles, stacks, heaps or mountains to build up


  • take charge of mail
  • limit incoming mail, where possible
  • discard envelopes
  • have a place for mail to “land”
  • have everyone do the same
  • deal with mail daily

    You are so right about this Angela, whenever I leave mail unopened I end paying late fees on bills or the like – it all gets out of control.
