Conquering The Paper Monster

I swear that paperwork multiplies overnight when I’m not looking! I was doing so well at getting organized and here I am again looking at piles of papers.  I clearly have not been following my plan.  Instead, because of a busy schedule, paperwork ends up getting shoved onto a book shelf beside my desk.  It’s overwhelming when…

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!! This year has flown by.  It’s hard to believe that in just a few days it will be 2013.  Once again I ask, “Where has this year gone?!!” In the last several years I have chosen NOT to make New Year’s resolutions.  It just seems pointless because I would make resolutions that…

This is a great quick list for helping you get organized… and stay organized. I’ve come to realize that it’s a mindset. I just found this blog this morning and encourage you to take a look at other things that she has written.

Organizing Doodlebug’s Room

(One of these days, I’m sure he won’t want to be called Doodlebug anymore.  But, for right now, he likes it.) We decided it was time to do Spring Cleaning in my youngest son’s room.  He complained to me last week that his bed squeaked all night and kept waking him up.  So, out goes the old…

I’m finally feeling a bit better, although I still haven’t fully recovered from whatever…

FlyLady

Last week I was introduced to the FlyLady.  Thank you, Beth.  (FLY stands for Finally Loving Yourself, by the way.) There are a lot of really good tips and ideas on that site.  However, please be aware that if you register for the FlyLady “newsletter” you’ll be receiving 12 e-mails a day.  It can be pretty overwhelming.  She…

Orderliness

When it comes to school assignments, creating training materials and preparation when I speak, my writing, etc., I am organized.  But, I am definitely not the most organized person in the world in the rest of life.  At least not yet.  At times my office desk acts as a black hole where things get lost…
