Junk Mail Avalanche… How to stop the onslaught!

This past week I got to catch up with a client who I have met with about 2-3 times a year over the past several years.  Yes, that is correct… getting organized is not a one and done kind of thing.  Getting organized and staying on top of a dynamic life full of work, hobbies, home and family, as many of you know, is a lot of work.  Thankfully she and I have forged a sweet relationship and she proudly calls me in for back up!

She has a mail issue, can anyone relate.  She keeps a lovely home and you would never know when you enter her tidy main level that she has hidden away boxes and boxes of papers, mail, catalogs and cards (thankfully not bills.)  So a few times a year, when it has become too overwhelming, she give me a call and I come, and we sort and toss and file….

Better late than never….

No love for (schedule) clutter…

As we say farewell to February, we find another year racing by, with April hot on our heals. How is your 2013 so far? We had a great turn out for our January – Time Management class in Peregrine, here is a highlight…

Margin

MAS Movement LLC’s first official sale was a huge success. My team and I still have plenty of work to do to clear away what was left. Charity, scrap metal, hazardous waste, eBay and general recycling have yet to be sorted, we have a few days of work ahead before we can broadcast our final numbers.

But what a weekend! Summer is in full swing… vacations to look forward to, landscape projects coming to fruition, calendar booked with clients and then HICCUPS. Family illness effects our travel. A major storm thwarts our backyard plans. And a single job takes twice as long as expected causing cancellations. Am I just complaining about being too busy? Certainly no complaints here, but a great opportunity to revisit the “margin” in my schedule

What is “margin”?

Thank you, please come again

Last week’s class was a HUGE success. We were just about out of space and a few who rsvp’d weren’t able to make it! Thank you to all who were there, it was a pleasure meeting each of you.

We covered four things in the class:

Identifying clutter

Space and containers

Managing mail by “opting out”

Recycling – local resources

It was a lot of information to take in. Hopefully all those in attendance took away some helpful tools to get life in order.

Get Organized by Opting Out

The eye-sore by the front door better known as DEX, yellowbook, the book, the yellow pages and/or the white pages….

Well folks it’s that time of year again, the time when, with a giant thud, over five pounds of paper hits the front porch. Ah, the phonebook(s). I remember a time when they were necessary, but in the digital age I think it is safe to say they may only be used as a booster seat at granny’s house or perhaps a doorstop in the summertime when they are rediscovered languishing in their blue or yellow bag still on the front porch.
