Using aNote as an organizing tool

Everyone would love an organized home and life, but is it really attainable? In my opinion, yes. But, it takes work to accomplish this feat. Are you willing to have a place for everything and put everything in its place? If you are, then you can attain a state of bliss, or close to it.

The most wonderful time of the year to purge (to me) is after a holiday season.
