Let's Get Organized

Thank you for stopping by, like what you see, share the page with your family & firends. Let's get this blog started...

We are going to take baby steps. This is important especially if you have a mess right now. If one junk drawer turned into 10; the top of your desk is buried under files, mail, and clusters of papers, or you find yourself throwing things in your guest room when visitors are due over.

So let's get started!

First and foremost, start a "Tackle" box. This will have a file folder in it for each day of the month (1-31). Since we are going to be reusing the days each month, we simply need to label them by the day.

The goal is to get everyone in the house to use this so that you can get done what you need to get done in a timely manner and still have the much needed and wanted time with your family & friends. Since it is summertime time, it is a great time to start this!

Everything that needs to get done for work, home, school is placed under the appropriate date that it needs to be completed. Let's say that your phone bill is due on the 20th, you will put it under the 15th. This will allow plenty of time for it to reach it's destination by mail. At the first of the month get all of your Birthday or Anniversary Cards ready for mail & place under appropiate date. If the birthday is on the 12th, put it under the 7th.

Starting this now, before school starts will help teach your children what it is for and how to use. No more lost papers that need to be signed, or lost permission slips, etc.

So the homework is to create your "Tackle" box. So when we are cleaning and organizing we can put it to use immediately!

Happy Organizing
Tina
