I am thrilled to share a success story with you today! This is from a tele-organization project as the woman lives in another state. It's this simple ONE THING that has made a difference. Enjoy
"Just thought I would touch base…I’m making progress….I have put up a monthly family calendar and a peg board in our entryway so that we can note by month what we have going on! It is smaller than I hoped for, but bottom line, it works! Hoping to keep our family a little more in check which basically means keeping Mom & Dad updated on who is where and when…since we seem to only pass in the night.
I also came up with a mail basket for the bowling alley. It has folders in it for bills, which corresponds to when they are due (i.e. Due Now, Next 10 days, Next 20 days, Next month) and then a “Misc.” folder for business mail my husband can read through at his leisure. Only been about 3 weeks, but we are finding it helpful because I can go through the mail – open the business bills, write the due date on the front of the envelope and put in the corresponding folder for him to just grab when he is in bookwork mode. Saves him time, keeps me involved, and I’m feeling great about creating the process.
Still need to tackle the dining room in general and that “catch all” counter – but the mail issue was the first problem to solve! "
