2013 Word: OrganizationMonday, January 07, 2013
- Home. Bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, studio. I want to have control of it always. I know that I will never have it all together all the time, but I want to make a conscience effort to making a place for everything and effectively using the space I have.
- Business. I am terrible keeping up with my inventory and packaging supplies. I am constantly running to the store to pick up tissue paper or the post office for stamps. These silly things are easy to prevent and seriously put a dent in my productivity. I spent this weekend organizing my studio and it is already making a world of difference. I'm so excited to get to work this week!
- Computer. My files are a mess. I do pretty well creating separate folders for different projects and files but there is a lot of information on my computer that I no longer need. I also want to take control of my desktop. It tends to be a catchall for all those things I'm not sure where to file away and that I'm not quite ready to trash. I'm thinking about designing a wallpaper that works for my needs and seeing how that helps me keep things in line.
- Finances. I have never been one to balance my checkbook or schedule bill payments ahead of time. This has caused me to overdraft my account numerous times because you can not always rely on the balance listed in your online banking. Trust me. I really want to get a hold of my spending, in my personal life as well as for my business, and know exactly where every penny is going. I have never been one to save for a "rainy day" but the older I get, the more I realize that it's necessary!
I, like so many others, headed to Pinterest to find some creative solutions for my organization goals. You can follow along and see what I've pinned here. Have any other great organization tips for me? I'd love to hear what others are doing and have found successful in their own lives!
