This is what I need.
|I really wanted to add tonight that carving out your own space in the house is so essential, IMO. I didn't really have this until recently. I've always kept a detailed dayplanner, but I never really had a place to park it or myself. I finally got my dream desk a few months back, with some drawers, etc. and it has made my life happier, really.
WHEN we finsih the basement -- was supposed to be this winter, i want it to be next cuz of the new baby and a 2 yo ... I am supposed to get a huge walk in closet (like a big master closet) to have as "mine" -- a mini office if you will that i won't wactually WORK in. shelves for me, a locking door to hide gifts behind, space for my stuff when i someday become a LC or a CBE (or both) .... I am soooooooooooo excited, then it will all be in one place, i can find it all when i want it, i won't have to keep moving c%^p around from area to area and it will be out of sight and thus not look so clutters ...... so excited -- but it wil be a long time.
I have asked Scott to put up a shelf (anohter one) over the computers so all my binders can live toherget (not recipie one, lives on cookbook shelf in kitchen) .....
I also just bought 3 letter / flie sorters and have labled the slots (Scotts mail, Bills to pay, to read and trash, scotts to deal with not mail, to be files ... and so on) and I need Scott to hang them on the wall by the computer too -- they are sitting on the one shelf i have jsut taking up space -- if it CAN hang on the wall HANG IT ....
NOTE: Not all the binders are completed
... I finally realized ... that i jsut needed to JUMP in, so i have all the binders and they are all labled, but not everything is in them (a lot of stuff is still in stacks, folders, and various places all over the house), and they do not all have all the sections i plan for them to have ... But I am working towards it ... Jumping in at least got me somewhere rather than just thinking about it ...
|Wow Aimee! You might need a system for your system
I used to run a front office of a private school -- i got my binder obsession then ... i put everything in Binders cuz things got lost out of normal files (emergency slips, staadne froms, yadda yadda yadda ..) and what ended up staying in the flie was not in order any more. AND the normal fiels were too hard to qickly tell the differnce between ... so i put everything in differnt color binders with BIG lables -- so i could see them, and so could other staff ... thus my binder addiction .....
