Paper Tamer

MD. Rakinul Islam

Just like the great ruins of any ancient civilization, we observe that a monument starts to erode when the subject is left uncared for. The same can be seen with a rarely dusted house, with particles of dust surrounding every corner, regardless of the absence of any activity. A more mundane problem rising from the slow ignorance comes from a rather common yet unnoticed element. Observe any place of work and you will see the key factor for mess in any such situation is paper and its hectic disposal!

“The average office worker generates about 2 pounds worth of paper and paperboard products every day and uses 10,000 sheets of paper per year! Between print mistakes, junk mail, handouts, billing, presentations and packaging, mixed paper products make up an estimated 70% of the total waste in offices.”, reports Shelby Bell in an article published at Rounder Runner’s page in the year 2019. Once we have understood the problem and plan to take an organized approach to the issue, we face a new obstacle regarding the equipment and furniture needed to organize the various kinds of paper, ranging through different matrix of labeling, from importance to dimension.

Now, when we talk about sorting paper, we have to come to an understanding that it contains every form of document, starting from a sticky note to confidential files. We ask you to have faith in us when we non-statistically announce that the ways to organize paper is infinite, with unlimited possibilities, varying from each person to the other, and the best way to create a paper organizer to perfectly suit your own usage is to make one yourself!
