Trying to Organize Life
Well, it seems that I’ve missed the last two Wednesdays for this blog. Shame on me. It’s not necessarily that I haven’t had material to write about, nor is it that I don’t have the time. It’s been more of the “I’m just burned-out” on the whole internet thing. I’ve stayed away from it for the most part, but I have been on to include the latest Pinterest addiction I have acquired over organization. I also have been working on commissions, and hopefully will see a paycheck soon from those and finish the last one I have on my plate.
Because of the things that I’ve been wanting to do and the things that I have been needing to do, I sometimes have a bad memory and forget EVERYTHING. My mind I guess becomes so overwhelmed that it just cannot handle the information and instead ends up telling me to have a mental health day….days… week; you get the idea.
Earlier this month, I decided that I needed to get a planner. However, there really isn’t anything out there that I’ve absolutely fallen in love with… after all, I’m no longer in school and I don’t need to record assignments. However, I would like to have a planner that takes care of both my monthly appointments (workshops for unemployment, days when paperwork is due, lunch dates, etc…) as well as a daily “to-do” list that I can take care of everyday or throughout the week. This would include information on blog posts, podcasts, forum postings, etc… I started looking at filo-fax and day planners, I found them horribly expensive for the budget that I have; besides, nothing really seemed to have the best look.
Then I found the Laurel Denise, and although I know that it’s most likely the thing I need, I just have to balk at the price. I mean seriously… $35??? For a year planner? I’m already in mid-March, why would I want to spend that much when we’re already a quarter into the year? Also, that’s a lot a money for something that I’ll never be able to fill.
Maybe I should make my own, but I’m not in the mood to have a binder.. it just doesn’t look classy in my opinion. I’m not sure.
What do you use to keep your life in order?
