Organizing, What was I so worried about?

August 13, 2009

I did it!  Yes, I took the first step…making the call, talking with Dawn my organizer and getting the supplies for my first project, the paperwork.  How many of you just love paper work, tons of bills, school forms, and junk mail that needs to be sorted every day but never does?

Dawn picked up some basic hanging folders, you know the green ones that just hang from a plain old crate type of container.  I don’t need fancy right now I need function and an easy & effective quick plan to get to keep my papers in order.  The system has to be easy.  It feels like I’m climbing Mount Everest in the wrong season.

How do others do it?  How do they keep the val pak’s, Sunday inserts and those envelopes that you just know are non convincing insurance plans that you can’t do without and bank related pitches for more of your money.  I heard a line once, “touch it once”.  I wonder if Dawn will tell me that.  I’m ready.

Now to clear my calender and get her in here to begin our journey.  Sometime next week will be our first session.  Down and dirty, I’ll keep you posted.

Do you have any tips for keeping paperwork in order?  Share it here.

That’s it for now.  What was I so worried about?  Well it hasn’t started yet.
