Stuck in the house (stupid snow!)? take the opportunity to follow simply B organized's tips for getting organized in 2015!
Who resolved to get organized this year? Need some help on where to start? Check out this month's Clutter Clinic!
(I'll be there! Let me know if I should look for you!)
Raise your hand if you use a spreadsheet to track of your Christmas gift purchases.

This could get tricky-- or maybe I just make it more complicated than I need to be:
How do you manage your photos?
I used to have such a good system. I don't horde pictures on my phone; I'm good at saving them to my computer, into a labeled folder. Then, they're stored/backed up onto the server.
BUT when I want to find a particularly good picture, or print a bunch, or make a book, it takes FOREVER to sort through all of them. I started copying 'bests' to a separate folder for easy access, but then my husband adds his to the mix, without pulling out bests, maybe without the same naming convention, etc.
So-- how do you manage? Please don't tell me you have 400 pics on your iphone and nowhere else.
I appreciate the emergency plan, but HOW MANY TIMES CAN I FILL OUT THE SAME INFO?
Seriously, you need to provide this info just to register the child, then each year you are asked to fill it out within the first week of school, then for the nurse, then verify it is correct on the online page, then for the directory, then just for FUN! And this is from a paperless/green initiative school.
Why is there not one master form per family?
Totally jinxed myself by saying I don't lose things. Just wasted the last hour looking for something in my own house, with no luck.
I need prayers to St. Anthony!
What's something somewhat petty that bugs you?
I hate lost things. I don't understand how people lose things. Hair bands, pens, lip gloss, bobby pins, paperwork, Superhero Squad mini-figures... I have it all. And on the rare occasion that something does go missing, it drives me crazy. I want a search function for my house ;)
These things actually do make me happy. And if that is wrong, I don't want to be right :)
Let's play a game: If you were a red cake pedestal, where would you be?
(This should not be an issue; my house is not that big!!)
Little Guy couldn't go to sleep because his (usually OCD) aunt made his bed with the sheet upside-down hahaha. Totally my kid.
