Often, it’s much more anxiety-provoking and draining than going through a clothes closet or a desk drawer.
Some people think they'll regret getting rid of papers and wished they'd kept some of it.
You can create a holding box: put papers in that box for six months—or even a year, if you're really worried—and see if you ever need to retrieve anything from that box. If you don't, get rid of the box
"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."
Spend 5 minutes each morning preparing your task list to have only accomplishable tasks that fit the time you have available. Keep other tasks on a holding list for another day.

And even when you’re looking right at the lost item, it becomes difficult to see when surrounded by clutter.
