Containing Piles of Paper - have a nice container (something that suits your personality, your style, your environment) that will hold all that paper together, keep it tidy - this will prompt you to open it the day of the week that you have carefully allocated to "catch up" with mail. Keep the container visible and preferably close to your entrance.
