Working on the big question, are you organized or not?

Becoming organized is an ongoing process and it is so easy to slip up and slide back into your old ways. Even when you know the key to a better outcome is organization and to finish one thing completely before starting another. As a multi-tasker it is difficult to change, maintain and support organization day in and day out.

We all know, or have heard about practice makes perfect, so maybe none of us has practiced enough to get the concept down in our heads or brains. Getting the bed made right away in the morning, even if no one is going to see it. Keeping the kitchen clean are two things that I am better organized at, but not much more. So my plan is to try, try again and hope I will make some progress.

You are welcome to join me in this organization thing. My plan is to focus on the paper side of things as that is what always seems to get out of hand. Here are some thoughts that have been running through my mind that might help you and me also.

  1. Going to the grocery store with a list. I am getting famous for forgetting the list, and the coupons. Went to the store for milk!! Got many other things, but no milk. LIST! COUPONS!
  2. Selecting a certain day or time to see that all bills are paid timely, automatically. Set up donations online, so that we can give when possible .
  3. Going through junk mail as soon as it comes !. Be careful that you do not throw out something important, like information from a physician’s office or some paper that has to filled out before you can get a procedure done.
  4. Try to really work harder on menu planning. It is such a pain.
  5. Work on getting my office to it’s organized look.

Support! For a diet thought or two!

Originally written 7/25/2019 Updated 7/15/2021

Diet, oh no not again. However it is something that is very serious for many people. It’s not that you don’t want to lose weight, you do. You know what people, even family, say to your face or behind your back. So it is time to take the bull by it’s horns and begin all over again.

There are diets, numerous diets and diet plans all over the internet, in magazine, on television, in books. You name it and there is a diet for it. Some are fads and should really be checked out before you run out and buy all kinds of things you will probably not use. Expensive things that will just sit in your cupboard.

What would you do if your physician, health care provider said you must go on a special diet? Maybe he or she has said this more than once, but serious time is here. Health issues are becoming complicated . Maybe it is not you personally that needs the diet, but one of your family members. So what happens next:

Begin walking to help you relax, stay movitated and think about the following:

Do you make the appointment for the diet consultation or does your physician’s office do that? Many physician’s offices, health care provider’s office’s will set up the initial visit for you.

What is your understanding of why the consultation is needed. Has your health care provider explained this well to you?

Be prepared with questions about the diet you are going to be following . If you don’t understand something, ask more questions.

Who does most of the cooking at your home? The grocery shopping? That family member needs to go to the appointment with you. If this is a child needing a special diet, make sure if they are old enough, they can ask questions and understand what is going on.

Families have to be involved also, as what the family is going to be eating may not always be liked by everyone. Resentment can set in.

Family member on the diet has a big job to do also.Thankful that the family is helping, willing to get on board with the diet and not negative when the food is put on the table.

Thank you, a big thank you to the person involved in the cooking. Be helpful not resentful.

Support is the key word here. Get involved in a support group. Help plan meals. Be compliant with the diet.

Organize! Yes! Why!

With all the wonderful weather we have been having including the high temperatures, we all believe summer will be here before we know it. The flowers are popping up their heads, the grass is so green and already needs cutting .

Everyone is talking about starting their garden . I say everyone but not us this year. Too much work getting the soil ready, planting, taking care of the weeds, so we are passing .

Goal is to continue organizing our home, decluttering closets, dresser drawers and the garage, getting rid of the excess we have. This last year my office got cleaned and that was considered a miracle so we will just make sure more miracles continue to happen.

That means also cleaning out cupboards really well, because they are overloaded with excess. That means looking at dates and getting rid of outdated items in cupboards and pantry.

Why become more organized. The cleaner more organized your living environment, the more smoothly life goes for you. Doesn’t that sound good.

To become really organized your focus has to be on doing one thing at a time. Finish! Finish! Finish!

Start your project.

Think about a chart with the assignments written on it.

Plan a time to start and finish each part of your cleaning

Plan a 2nd day to start and finish, if the first day was not enough

Plan a time to go and purchase new containers if needed.

Make sure someone has the job of wiping down each cupboard before thing are put back in the cupboard or pantry.

Make sure someone has the job of wiping down the refrigerator before putting items back .

Know who is coming to help for sure.

Be sure you have some food for everyone.

Finish before everyone is so tired they can’t move.

Good luck with the organization.

Going to use my Thieves for this project

Thieves, from Young Living is what I am going to use to really clean some of the areas discussed in this blog.
Have used it on spots on the carpet, areas where puppies have had accidents and it really does the job.

Gifts for the kitchen, good any time of the year.

Kitchen Aid mixer. We have had one for years and it is a joy to use. Cleans up nicely. Never had a problem with it. The one I am giving you as a suggested gift is black onyx. Other colors may be available. The black one has a sophisticated look.

Husband really would like a new Kuerig that can make Cappucino’s. Looking at this one trying to evaluate the pros and cons. If you consider it be sure and read all the information and the reviews. Personally I have loved both our other Kuerig ‘s . Easy to use. Great advantages to a cup of coffee almost immediately. Good way to start the day.

What about a nice new set of knives for the kitchen? What do your pots and pans look like? How about some kitchen towels that match and have no holes in them. Consider a new spice set or just a nice assortment of new utensils, that don’t look really crappy looking in a short period of time. Mixing bowls if yours have been broken. Just suggestions when your mind is a total blank.

What about a nice radio to put on your kitchen counter to enjoy while you work. It doesn’t have to be a television, be different. Now this is what I call different.
