I love the idea of the shallow in-tray and ‘done’ pile, Denise!

The ‘shoebox full of receipts’ is a regular feature for bookkeepers, so they should be used to sorting through them. It makes my job easier if paperwork was marked with when and how they were dealt with, e.g. an ‘entered’ stamp that automatically puts in the date, and a ‘paid’ stamp along similar lines.

I’m biased, but I would strongly suggest you investigate and trial an outsourcing solution. As others have said, spend your time doing the things you’re good at, and I think you’ll be surprised at how much more you can accomplish without mundane tasks interrupting your flow.

Whichever option you choose, let us know you go. Good luck!
