How do you organize your life?!

I'm a paper planner kind of gal. Read more about that at my blog: its gonna be okay I would love to know how the work out of home mammas in this forum keep their life organized. Are you low tech, high tech, or no tech?!

Re: How do you organize your life?!

I would definitely say I'm high tech. But I do keep a binder full of important paperwork. I also have spreadsheets I keep in the binder. For bills, appointments, meal planning, automobile maintenance, appliance maintenance, and a daily/weekly/monthly cleaning list. It's nice because if there's ever an emergency all I have to do is grab our binder. It has everything important in it. But I don't ever take it out of the house unless there's an emergency and I keep it hidden in case of a break in.

Pretty much high tech but papers may be safer in this day & age!

I get everything planned out and then watch it blow up in my face. I have come to terms with my severely dis-organized life!

Re: How do you organize your life?!

I use a paper planner that covers EVERYTHING at home and work. We have four kids, appointments ALL the time, and my job requires me to schedule meetings and appointments with employees, prospective employees, benefits companies, etc constantly. The only way I keep all my to-dos and commitments organized is with my planner. I keep track of everything I've mailed, submitted, completed, each discussion I've had, kids' appointments, bill due dates, etc. in the same one.

I'm not organized at all. I look at organizational **** often, but get bogged down in the details. I start countless projects and rarely finish one.

I did put a twice daily reminder only phone for the baby's medicine. Best idea ever.

Re: How do you organize your life?!

Google calendar is my life blood. It's difficult because my work firewall blocks a lot of websites and I can't have my cell at work, can't access my work e-mail/calendar at home. I am able to access Google calendar at work though, so all of my bill due dates are in there. I have ADHD, so a good system is crucial for me. Also, letting go a bit has been a huge help for me. Right now, if I am productive at work, the kids are fed, the house isn't completely falling apart, and I'm not screaming at my kids in the evening, then I call it a W.

Re: How do you organize your life?!

I keep a binder of stuff for the business that is well organized and I am absolutely anal about where stuff goes. I don't let anyone touch it. My bf is allowed to dig through my purse to find what he needs but never the binder. Bring me the binder and I'll find you your item. Also, my phone calender is critical. I put reminders for everything in there. It's the first thing I do in the morning as I wait for my coffee to brew is look at the calendar for the week.
