1.) Opening all mail is important.

True dat. I've never almost-thrown-away that much, though!

2.) 2 Aging boxes which are swapped every two week, for ads catalogs and receipts that aren't worth filing. When the boxes are swapped, the contents of the previous box are tossed.

Can you explain about this a bit more? Are your aging boxes like inboxes? Do you unilaterally toss it after a month, or sort first?

3.) A obvious location for those items which requires more extensive processing.

Check! For bills, anyway.

Thanks for the tips, Debra!
