Today I revisted a site I've went to many times before off and on. www.flylady.net She helps you get your house clean and organized in simple, manageable steps. She suggest setting a timer for 15 min. and working for 15 min at a time. It's really doable if you look at it that way.
She has different tips for each day.
Her tip for today is:
Just take 15 min. and go through the stacks of mail, papers, magazines etc. and trash or put them away where they belong. You will be suprised how much you can put away in a short time.
See that's not so hard.
