The last couple of weeks have focused on clearing out paperwork clutter, organizing paperwork into a financial file box, an setting up an incoming paperwork basket. Today it’s all about the planner.
I first learned about the binder system through FLY lady back when my daughter was in elementary school. It was a life saver because my time at home was limited it helping her with her school work, making and cleaning up after dinner, and bedtimes. I still use a variation of the binder, although I have strayed away from it in some ways. This planner is a slimmed down, simplified version that fits my lifestyle a bit better.
Start with a presentation folder and download The Art of Love & Money Personal Planner.
Imagine having all of your important paperwork in one spot when you are ready to deal with it. You can take it to work with you, or in the car, you can work on your paperwork when you have the time – waiting at the Doctor’s office or during tumbling class or soccer practice, over your lunch break. There are no limits to when you can get your to-do list accomplished when you have everything in an organized ready to go binder! This one is slim enough it can fit in my (oversized) purse.
The files are customize-able, so make it work for you!
