Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to everyone. This blog will be all about getting organized for the new year since that seems to be a popular resolution. There are a ton of great sites on the web to use. I actually sat down and drew up a chart that listed all the members of our family and went from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. broke into half hour segements. I then filled in the blanks (kind of like a MOTH schedule) and typed it up in Word using the tables feature. I am going to get printed on to heavy paper and am actually thinking about having it laminated to save wear and tear on it. If you think this will work for your family I suggest that for a day you write down everything that you do. Even if it doesn’t seem important-this will help you see where you are wasting time and energy. Be sure to make sure that you leave some free time for those unexpected things that op up. Any special notes can be typed up underneath the schedule for referencing to. Also a master chore list is helpful so you can do your housekeeping in some kind of order
A good dayplanner is also needed if you truly want to get organized. I picked mine up at Wal-Mart for less than $10. It has a calculator, fill in yourself calendar section, including diary pages that break down into half hour increments from 8 am until 5 pm with extra blanks before 8am and after 5 pm., to do list section, personal information section,notes section, an address book (write your addresses in pencil to erase when the information changes) and a notepad. The company that made mine is called Plan Ahead.
Till next time…
