I am so not as organized as I thought. Really it seems like I am but sometimes I wonder if to much organizing gets in my way. Or am I organized enough and just need a better plan to get it all done. I just don't feel like I have it all together sometimes. I really try to be, but I just feel like I can't do it all and I don't get everything I want done on a daily basis. So it's not all jsut about organizing I guess I is getting it all done.
With cleaning (this includes everything in the house: laundry, vacuuming, dishes, etc.), outside yardwork, driving Wyatt around now to soccer and school, picking Colton up weekends, being the classroom mom (this is new this year), meal planning, shopping, cooking 3 meals a day, blogging, couponing (this has really paid off for us), alone time with Derek (which hasn't happened to much with his night job), being a mommy, scrapbooking (which has taken a back burner), watching my shows (thank goodness for the dvr), working out, me time.
Now don't get me wrong I love a good challenge and I love being organized and getting it all done, but I think i need to get a better system. What do you do??
Here is what i do now-
I have my calender and dry erase board at my desk. I figure this is where my phone and computer is so it works best here for me; to make appt., pay bills or just see what is going on on a daily basis. On the dry erase board I have a list of monthly bills and I put the amount and due date on them and when I pay them for the month I just cross them off. On the calender has holidays, days off for school, when the boys are here, birthdays, appts.
What I would like to do better- I have gotten really bad about birthdays, it is like I see them coming and tell myself ok need to send a card, but ya the day comes and goes and it doesn't get done.
On my fridge I have a dry erase board that I put my daily To Dos on and I have a magnet clip that I put my menu and/or the recipes for the week on . This is actually really working well for me. It is all where I can see it, love this spot. This works well for me.
