I am so glad you can not see through my computer into my office and the rest of the house. I am so disorganized in everything I do around the home. And, here I was known as a great organizer on my job. I have the job reviews to prove it.
Therefore, my New Years Resolution for 2007 is to become more organized. I watch all of those shows on Home & Garden Network about organizing. I think I know how to do it now. All I have to do is get started. So, on January 1st, even though it is a holiday, in my office, I am going to put throw aways in one box, still-to-do in one box, and important papers in another box. The important papers are going to get filed - which means starting a new file for some subjects. The throw aways are going in the trash containers for recycling. And the still-to-do box will be saved for January 2nd, when I will begin to sort through each item and finish it. I must admit, it is a little scary to think about what might be in that to-do box. What if it was suppose to be done a month ago and I already missed the deadline?
This is an idea that I got right off Home & Garden's Organizing segment. The lady is always telling the home owner's to sort first. Buy storage bins, baskets, and containers for the important items in your office. Have a sorting container on your desk for ingoing and outgoing mail. If you save magazines, buy or make magazine holders for the closet.
I can't wait until I can start finding things again! And I will love being able to walk around without stepping on anything anymore. The appraiser didn't even want to take a picture of my office for his records when he came by two weeks ago!
