Some might think me fairly good at organization. I pay bills on time (ahead of time), I meet deadlines early, am normally only a few minutes late to doctor appointments, and don't consider "fashionably late" all that fashionable. But if you saw my boxes and stacks of clutter, or have visited our basement at any time in recent history, you might wonder what happened to organizing? Where are the see-through plastic boxes with color coded labels on shelves where I can find everything easily? Like that warming tray I only use every other year? Or that book I am sure I saved. Where are those pictures we took back in 1984? Has anyone seen my blue sock?

You get the idea.

I'm organized where it counts, I suppose. But I sure could use an "everything in its place" mentality where the rest of "stuff" is concerned. I'm working on that. Perhaps by next year I can report on good progress.

In the meantime, I was thinking I do need to organize the business end of my life better too. Seems like all of the "have-to-do's" are increasing as the years go by. If you have a system that works for you - like scheduling certain things for certain days, I'd love to hear it. Email me or comment on my Facebook Page.

Happy organizing~
