Staying organized is hard for almost all of us, especially when we wear so many hats. There have been days that I wouldn’t have any idea what to do or where to be from one minute to the next without a planner.
I’ve got good news for you, though. Time management is easier than you think. In fact, you can make time management as easy as A-B-C!
I’ll explain the ABC Method, then give a free printable at the end (so stick with me)!
My fourth wedding anniversary is coming up at the end of this month. I’m also pushing 40. That’s hard for me to admit, but it’s true. 4-0!
These two facts mean that I spent many years being completely self-reliant. When something broke around my house, I either fixed it or had to find someone to hire that could. Okay, so I admit that when my dad was younger, he helped me quite a bit – but still.
Doing regular home maintenance tasks will help to make sure that your home is in tip-top shape.
If you find yourself in a situation where you’re the one responsible for home maintenance, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. It seems that there’s almost always something to do, which is hard if you aren’t used to performing those kinds of tasks. It’s also hard to remember when to do maintenance, especially when you have a million other things going on in a day.
Let me tell you from experience, though, not performing those maintenance tasks will cause you bigger headaches in the future. Just do it.Continue reading →
Today’s post is targeted to those of you who are willing to do something a little different for the holidays this year – give Christmas Coupons! This is perfect for those of you who need to figure out how to actually gift for Christmas when you can’t afford it. This idea is good for those of you who:
are struggling financially to buy any Christmas gifts
are struggling financially to buy more than one gift for the kids
need fresh ideas for stocking stuffers
want to get back to the basics and give the gift of quality time
Read on to download a free printable that will allow you to actually gift for Christmas when you can’t afford it! There are two versions available: for adult and for kids! There are three sheets available for each version.
Can you believe that Christmas is right around the corner?? It seems like time is flying by. Tomorrow is Black Friday (otherwise referred to as the most wonderful time of the year in my house), and soon there will be lots of gifts that need to be wrapped and tagged.
I hate to admit it, but most of the time I wait until the last minute to wrap anything. I stack the gifts in a spare room until the day before I give them. I recycle gift bags that I receive, so I rarely even buy wrapping paper or bags. I do always need tags, though – and I usually forget to buy them. I know, I know….my organization isn’t the greatest during the holidays.
I created cute Christmas gift tags that can be downloaded and printed at the last minute (or anytime!).
I’m so excited for the holidays. Food, family, a day or two off from work, shopping. I feel like I don’t know if I’m coming or going some days, though. I’ve spent the last week or so carrying around three or four different to do lists to try to keep up with everything, and it hasn’t worked too well so far. I’m just too old-school to use my phone for lists and alerts. I finally sat down and created a master list — My Daily Organization — that would handle every aspect of my hectic day. I want to share it with you in case you’re in the same boat as me.
This printable is intended to be used each day, but you could easily use it for weekly lists, as well. I’m so busy that I have to use it daily for now. Maybe things will slow down after the holidays, but then I’ll slide into spring cleaning and summer fun. So I will likely stay just as busy.
