Start Here - I'm an Organizing Junkie
I hope my site can offer you some encouragement and humor as you set out on the journey of creating organized solutions and systems that work specifically for you and your family. In addition to saving you time, money and sanity, organizing can also be fun, it can be addictive and it is most definitely pleasing to God (1 Cor 14:40). All terrific reasons to organize our spaces and our lives. I truly believe organizing is a PROCESS not a destination. Just when you think you’ve got a handle on things it’s time to do it all over again. I’m here to help. I’ve created an acronym to help you conquer any space or system easy and efficiently. PROCESS is defined as a series of actions used to produce something or reach a goal. That is what we want to do when organizing.

9 Organizational Planners That Will Change Your Life I’m a procedural person, meaning I like order, direction, process, being on time—all those fun things. (For a more in-depth description, read up on Thinking Talents!) And because of that, one of my favorite things to do every year is pick out a new planner. I’ll do my research, see who has the trendy ones, look for the perfect layout, and bonus points for a little inspiration. (I remember one year I had a Vera Bradley planner, and it had all these super-random holidays in it, so my friends and I would always text each other and giggle a bit about whatever day it was, according to Vera. Oh, high school.) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. Photos: Julia Davila-Lampe / Getty Images; Courtesy Images

National Association of Professional Organizers Unfuck Your Habitat: tidy advice for messy people I've been really enjoying "Unfuck Your Habitat," which offers advice and community for messy people who struggle to stay organized and tidy. I especially like the before and after shots of messy rooms that have been successfully put to rights. I'm a super-tidy neat-freak, and compulsive enough about it that I annoy my family with it -- but for most of my early life, I was a total slob. Basically, I got into a somewhat rigid habit of cleaning up continuously and it became a kind of low-grade mania for me. At least once a day, someone asks: “Why should I make my bed? Isn’t it kind of pointless?” Unfuck Your Habitat (via Beth Pratt) Final Draft 10 is the industry standard screenwriting software Produce smarter, SEO-optimized content with Webtexttool Web content creators who don’t have a solid SEO strategy should take note of Webtexttool.

The big list of 100 tools, tips and tricks to work more efficiently online 7.2K Flares Filament.io 7.2K Flares × What does it take to be productive? It’s a question I often ask myself and to be honest I don’t have a great answer for it yet. One key discovery I’ve made over the past year or so is that I need to have great habits in place.
