It's the new year and many of you may have had changes to your insurance. Or maybe you are in job transition or caring for a loved one. Whatever your situation, the key to getting the most benefit from your insurance is to understand the insurance language.
By learning the insurance language, you will be better equipped to gain better control over your health care coverage. You can then manipulate your insurance language skills to achieve your desired goals by being able to ask the right questions!
Having worked and lived through the insurance maze, I know that navigating it can be tricky and confusing. In March, I am offering an "Insurance 101" class that will help you navigate your insurance waters. You won't want to miss it. We will discuss a variety of basic insurance terminology and processes and of course end with a Q&A session.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Exciting new changes are coming this February and you get to participate.
Starting February 1 you will be able to play organizational trivia, submit your favorite tips and get weekly favorite organizing products and services!
I also am excited to introduce a new class - Emotional Release or Release of Emotions. Look for the sign up coming soon and discover why emotions play such a big part of organizing.
Don't miss out on all the excitement. Follow me here, on Facebook or on Twitter for all the latest!
Looking forward to a great 2013.
Saving is great. I'm all for it. For all you coupon gurus, I applaud you.
However for most of you, have you ever really considered the opportunity cost of coupons? Before you clip - and save- that next coupon, take the following in to account.
It's amazing the amount of receipts we get. How many times have you cleaned out your purse, wallet, kitchen table or other area and found a ton of receipts? The ones I hate the most are from the restaurants. No, I do not need a receipt, much less two thank you.
The ultimate goal is to keep as few paper items as possible. But there are a few receipts that are important to have. Especially during tax time.
For the next few weeks I will be sharing some tips on how to keep those little pieces of important papers in order. Are you ready to get Go-ing?
Everyone stay calm. Put all your data in this storage and everyone will be happy. Remember, you'll regret it if you don't!
Taxes. Just say the word and people groan. We don't even want to think about it. Gathering all our papers and receipts makes us crazy.
But you can't tell the tax man that your pet goat ate your homework. So as you prepare your taxes for this year, let's get set up for next year.
Just like buying a home, the three most important words are location, location, location. Where will you keep all of your tax information? In your files? In a special box or basket? In a brightly colored file? Where ever it is. Make sure that you consistently put anything that relates to your taxes in that location. GO do it right the moment you have a piece of paper that relates to your taxes.

Use the right tool for the right job!
When have you started a project without the right tools and expect to get great results? The temptation to start a project without the proper tools a common mistake in achieving success. Unfortunately sometimes we don't even know that we aren't prepared.
Did you define your workspace/command central? Great! Now lets look at what you should have there. Command central should have all the applicable tools right at your fingertips. If you have to hunt for the right tools, or worse, use an "alternative, then you won't want to do your task. Keep all items that are nonessential in their own spaces or zone. No putting laundry in the office.
Let's take a look at a real life example. If you were to gather tools for bill paying, what do you use every time you pay them? Pen, stamps, envelope opener, checkbook? Put those items together. Remember it doesn't have to be boring. Think about some creative ways in which you can make your supplies fun to work with. And of course make sure they are organized. and easily accessible.
Remember, an organized workspace and proper tools will create a smoother, more balanced life. It's all about the right tool for the right job!

Set your GOal
Every great project starts at the end. Where do you want to GO? What does your destination look like? With tax season just around the corner, some of you might not be as prepared as you would like. I'm here to help.
We are going to start by ensuring we have the right tools for the job. First tool is a workspace. It doesn't have to be fancy but it does have to be a space that you will want to work in. If you like the sunshine, the basement office probably isn't the place for you. Maybe you enjoy working at the kitchen table or maybe it you prefer your office. Where ever it is, it should have good energy and a good, comfortable chair!
Choose your space as wisely as you have the resources to do so. Make small changes that will make your space more positive. Try small bursts of colors, pictures or GO get a big vase of flowers. Use what inspires you! You are going to be in this space a lot so make it yours.
