These are a Few of My Favorite Things…By
Ooh…kinda makes you wanna burst into song, doesn’t it? LOL!
#1 Sticky Notes
Most of my regular readers know my great affection for the sticky note. I use them everywhere. At work, they are on my monitor for tasks to do first thing in the morning. I use them in my big work planner as a to do list that I can rearrange as needed. I put them on the steering wheel of my car or on the coffee maker for things I want to remember to do for the day or take with me to work. They are truly awesome!
Ah, my beloved lists. I would be lost without them. They are the perfect “mind-dump”. I can jot things down throughout the day and then I can forget them and leave what remains of my brain for more important things. Like where my left shoe is…
I found the perfect wallet! It is checkbook sized, so I can keep my checkbook and register, a small planner where I track all my bills and appointments, money, receipts, credit and discount cards and business cards in it. Absolutely everything I need in one little cute, non-bulky place.
#4 Work Planner
Three years at my current job at work and I have finally come up with an organization system at work. My work planner. It’s just a three ringed binder with tabs and pockets, and of course, sticky notes. I can keep a list of all my regular duties and all my projects organized and in front of me at all times.
#5 Address/Password Book
I keep a cheap, cute little green address book in my purse with all my important addresses and phone numbers in it. But it also contains all of my usernames and passwords for all the different websites I use. Except for my bank account. That one is tattooed on my brain. Now I don’t have to click the “Forgot your password?” links anymore.
#6 Cell Phone
I’ve only had it for a little less than a year, but I’m becoming quite attached to it. I always have all my phone numbers with me now. And I can call my Honey when I’m at the store to ask if we’re out of ketchup.
