Organizing the Organization

Personal

I’m definitely not the most organized person in the world (shall we talk about the Junk Drawer again?!), but there are certain aspects of my life where I find myself detailing the smallest things I need to do. Or else I can’t sleep. Because the pants that need to be hemmed? The album that needs to be shipped? These things’ll keep me up at two in the morning if I don’t write it down for fear of forgetting. NOW WHO WOULDN’T WANT TO BE FRIENDS WITH ME?!

I blogged about my List of Things To Do and it’s clear I’m the type of girl who needs to write.things.down. If this isn’t proof I’m my mother’s spawn, I don’t know what is. My mother has post-it notes for her post-it notes…and I’m afraid I picked up her organizational traits. And it drives JD crazy. My desk is like a quilt of tiny neon papers.

I, essentially, had an overall To Do list, then made smaller lists of things I needed to do on a daily basis. It was like organizing my organization…and it really only made sense to me. Then JD surprised me what could be the best gift. Ever.

This weekly calendar post-it pad is from Poketo and gives me space to write what I need. When I’m done with the week, I peel it off and throw it away. Hey, whoever invented this, let’s make out!

I still save my main To Do list (three cheers for hoarding!), but this has cleared my desk and made life easier. Hollllla!

Happy Tuesday!
