My Daily Hand April 13, 2009

I’ve read the “Meesie’s Manual” several times and it’s about time I implemented some of the things I’ve learned.

I decided to start a Flipper. For those who are not aware of a Flipper, here’s a simple looking one.

I haven’t found a Spiral Index Card Notebook, but I did start on listing my Daily Chores.

On my daily hand,
—In the Morning—
: : Load Laundry
: : Fix Bed
: : Get Ready
: : Quick Clean up
: : Defrost Dinner (if Needed)

–When you get home—
: : Prepare Dinner
: : Serve dinner and wash Dishes
: : Put away Laundry – (Hubby puts the clothes in dryer after work)
: : Quick Clean up
: : Daily CARD – I had to put this in because I forget
: : Daily Goal / Project – Same reason why the Daily Card is here
: : Hygiene – I have to make time for this because it can potentially take up to an hour!!

I’m still trying to figure out and play around with my Daily Cards, so the next time I post this up, I’ll even take a pictures so you guys can see what I’m talking about

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.
