my DH was a piler. he loves PILES. i taught him first to put his piles in boxes (nice, storage ones from ikea), and now he actually files in those boxes.
it started with the boxes having labels "house stuff" adn "writing stuff" and so on. then, he would go through and put rubber bands and cover pages around each grouping within that "house stuff, bills" and "house stuff, receipts" and "house stuff, important papers" and so on. and now he uses files within the boxes.
and, he has honed himself down to three boxes: house stuff, misc important papers, and current writing notes. i also have a box for taxes.
my husband also used to complain about nothing to wear, and how i always looked good and had good clothes. i told him it's because i fold and put them away, rather than keeping htem in a pile on the sofa. with this, i have fewer items of clothing, so it's easier for me to pick and choose what i want to wear.
it makes it so much easier. when he saw how easy it can be, he got on board.
