Taking Time to Rest and Reset

Taking Time to Rest and Reset I learned that it is important to take time to rest this weekend. I attended the Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference for Professional Organizers (MARCPO) in Bethesda, Maryland. I was an Exhibitor for MobilLogic. I knew that it would be a very, very long day. Bethesda is (at minimum) a 90 minute drive from my office. And, the event started at 7:00 am! So, I worked hard at having everything together the evening before, and avoid having to stay up all night preparing for the Conference. I decided to take time to rest on Friday...

Using an iPad to Stay Organized

Using an iPad to Stay Organized I never would have thought that using an iPad to stay organized would be so beneficial as a college student. Getting an iPad for Christmas last year from my parents was probably the most practical and helpful present I have ever received…I absolutely love it and want to share my experience. Here are my top 5 reasons that I love my 16GB iPad mini with the wifi plan to stay organized as a college student. 1. It is saving my back…literally! Using the iPad to stay organized makes my backpack lighter. It has made...

Reach your Goals – Stop Feeling Like a Failure

Reach your Goals – Stop Feeling Like a Failure It is time to stop feeling like a failure when you don’t reach your goals. Last week I spoke to a group from our local Chamber of Commerce and this was the focus of the conversation. It was really about how to stay positive and realize that you can’t do everything! Of course, I guess that if you have a nanny, a maid and don’t work outside the home this could be possible…maybe! I’ve never had that luxury. I have always been expected to work hard – and there is...

Getting Organized isn’t Easy

  Whether you own a business or are a homemaker, getting organized isn’t easy. This is why it may be helpful to call an Organizing Consultant. Their ideas can allow you to think outside the box and get organized. Getting Organized Isn’t Easy. I relate it to raising children – it doesn’t come with instructions. If raising children and getting organized came with instructions, life would be great! There wouldn’t be nearly as much stress and anxiety in the world. What is the Right Way to Getting Organized? I think this is what stops people from organizing their space. They don’t want to make the “wrong” decision about how to organize. Do they have the right filing system? How do they even begin making the decision to get organized? What is the best use of their available space? When a decision can’t be made, it can stop them from organizing anything. Or, the other option is that since the area won’t be “perfect” no decision is made – and this is the worst decision. Another issue – There are a gazillion organizing products available and they can cost a lot of money to just sit on a shelf or collect dust in a closet. Almost everyone that I meet with has all of the organizing “tools” that they need (or thought that they needed). The problem is that they...

A Working Moms Schedule

    A working moms schedule can be exhausting. There is just so much to do. Your responsibilities are enormous. What are your thoughts when you are trying to wind down to get to bed – at a decent time? What are you thinking from the minute that you get up in the morning? Feeling stressed? Finding Time to Get it all Done can seem like a futile task. There is so much to do, and we all know that we can’t invent more time. My family is working through a few time management issues in our home. Our little girl started Kindergarten a few weeks ago. It has been 20 years since I had one “in” school. She has always been in a day care setting…but, it didn’t require that we stick to a schedule as closely as we do now. We need to keep her in the daily routine of having breakfast at school and catching the bus to Kindergarten. No more flexibility. I don’t consider myself to be OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) about schedules but I do consider consistency and routines to be one of my strengths. Before school even started, we decided where her homework would be done, when it would be done and that we would definitely have a bedtime routine of 8:00 pm. So far, so good…but it is soooo much! We have...
