I’ve been so freakin stressed these past couple of weeks – anxiety attacks GALORE. I always wondered why I’d get those attacks, and the main culprit is. . . my DISORGANIZATION.

I’ve decided it’s time to get a hold of my life, but where do I start?

My main frustration is finances, so I guess I’m going to start there. Along with finances are my schedules, and keeping track of days and appointments. I always loose sight of those.

I’m not quite sure what works for me, but I have tried the following

:: Wallet Organizer (w/ pages) – this lasted about 2 days. I then stopped using it, much less looking at it.

:: Notebook – It worked, but my problem was sticking with one notebook. I always got tired of notebooks, then stoped using and looking at them.

::Mini Photo Album turned to an organizer – this was great for keeping receipts and other loose paper, but def not the appointments.

:: My CellPhone – i used my cellphone type in various meetings / appointments. I just get lazy since it’s so hard to do (it’s a nextel phone)

I’m thinking of getting a PDA – since I won’t be able to get a treo anytime soon anyways. I think that would work out great – I always use my cellphone, and if I always use it, I’ll always look at it. Given the supereasy use of it, i think I’ll give it a shot.
