When you are a busy mom of 5 and wife of 1, life gets crazy. Let’s be honest, it gets down right chaotic. Maybe I’m the only one with chaos in my life, and you all have this “life” thing down. If so, I welcome any feedback, advice, letters of sympathy, or comments. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been trying to do with the chaos that I’ve been handed.
Behold, the binder! I haven’t prettied it up yet, but that’s last on the list. Rumor is, organized people have them, so I decided that I wanted in in that club. I found me binder and declared myself a member. I’m not sure if I’ve been let in the club yet. Here’s what I’ve done to try and qualify me.
One of the most important is “the calendar”. Many appointments are missed because it wasn’t written right away on the calendar. It’s important to write it down. If it’s not written down, it won’t get done. Simple as that.
My favorite thing about the dividers I bought is that they have these pockets that you can put things in. So for example, in my financial divider tab, I stick upcoming bills in there so that I’m not hunting for them in the never-ending piles on my desk. I also have a calendar for financial stuff. If I can see when the bills are due, I can keep track better and not be late. That’s the goal at least.
If any of you are like me, who want to be in that organized club, this is the first step . . . . or so I’ve heard . . . . . at least that’s what I think . . . . . I could be wrong. Does it really matter?
I’ve decided to start my own “organized” club. So here’s MY first step. All are welcomed to join. It’s free. You just have to have a binder . . . . totally kidding. About the binder at least.
