“I learned the organizing principle from playing the piano. When something didn’t doubt right, I found the page where the problem is and studied till I found the line of music where I was having problems. Then i was taught to narrow it down to the measure and practice “hand alone” until it was correct. The next was to practice “hands together” and build it up tempo, until the whole piece flowed as a harmonious whole. Not only did the piece work better, it sounded better.”
-Marcia Ramsland


WFMW : 1st post April 8, 2010

Just posting a quick life saver. 🙂

Hubbs works starts his work day with a graveyard shift, followed by another 8 hours of slave work. There are times (like tonight) when I come home from work hella tired and can’t stay up to help him out the door.

You know how organizing gurus talk about keeping things by the door so you won’t forget them? Well I take it literally. I hang his ‘work’ bag packed with lunch, drink, 5hr energy shots, vitamins, reading material (to keep him up if his iPhone cant do the job) his work keys, wallet, everything! I hang the keys on the bag too… Since he rarely rememers where he last put them. I hang the whole shindig on the door. He won’t be able to get out without touching it! I trained him too.. So he’s not clueless.

His scrubs are neatly (maybe) laid in the bathroom ready for him after his quick shower before work. A clean towel is hanging on the shower door. Talk about being pampered!!!

This little tip saves me worries when I can be there for the Hubbs. I can rest assured he won’t forget anything & saves $ coz he tends to go to 7-11 in the middle of the night during his lunch break.

Postin for works for me Wednesdays ::WFMW:: (my 1st post) coz this sure does work!!!!


Quick Tip : After Dinner January 26, 2010

It’s always been a habit to put away leftovers in the fridge. I recently started to pack leftovers for lunch BEFORE putting the food away (if there’s anymore left)
Such a time saver : no longer need to pull out the whole thing in the morning!

I work odd night hours and during my down time, I browse different websites and read organizing books. At first, I was writting down everything in diffent note books. I got really irritated how I always have to bring that notebook that I decided to write everything down in an online excel sheet. I have access to it anywhere I can get connected, which is uberly cool.
