Time Management Follow-up

Is that a catchy title that makes you want to read this post? No. I guess not. But, in my defense, my brain is a little fried from doing the number thing all day. My business computer crashed a couple of weeks ago and spent some time visiting the Geek Squad. While it was having a vacation, I was having to pay bills and conjure up make-shift invoices. Now, the computer is back, safe and…

Time Management – Formulating a schedule

With the new year underway, many people are still trying to conquer that elusive schedule. Well, I’m no different. I’ve been perusing blog posts about setting up schedules and there were a number of them that I found quite helpful. I’ve always followed a makeshift schedule of sorts, but felt it was time to really lock in a more productive time management system that worked for me. Flying by the seat of my pants just…

Is that my Fossil bag you're peeking in?

There is just something about the contents of a purse that intrigues women. I have been on a mission to locate the perfect bag (for me) for so long I can’t remember a time when I haven’t. I think I may have…

Hubby came up with the fabulous idea to take it off their hands and bring it over to our piece of land. He and a friend quite literally…

Challenge – Organize your planner supplies

After using only my iPhone the last year for keeping track of my life, I have recently gotten back into using my paper planner. I have always loved Day-Timer products and have been using them for twenty-five years. When I first began using a planner, the choices for inserts were quite limited. Today, the world is literally your oyster as the saying goes. Everywhere you look, someone has designed an insert. They are readily available…

Don’t Store Gloves in Coat Pockets

Even though it’s the most convenient place to stash them, to keep your gloves in the best condition you should avoid sto ring them in your coat pockets. Why? Because your hands perspire when you’re wearing gloves (yes, even when temps are below freezing), and they need to dry out once you’ve taken them off, which they can’t do wadded up in your coat pockets. Instead try putting them next to your keys on your entry table. That way…
