I worked on sorting through my boxes of papers tonight. I ended up finding some important papers/documents that I had been looking for. With all of the moving I've done in the past 3 years, I'm not mad that I haven't been more organized. Every time you move it completely uproots your life. Moving forward, I just need to keep some dedicated folders for important papers.
Keeping this sustainable, I need to regularly check these folders for files I don't need anymore. There is no point for these dedicated folders if they start amassing a bunch of papers.
I still have progress to make with my papers, but I feel good about what I accomplished tonight. Getting rid of old mortgage papers feels wonderful.
