...YOUR key to MORE time

How do you handle your to-do list? Do you keep everything on one list, one app, in your head, lots of little papers flying around...?

If you're like me, you have a never ending list of things running through your head at any given moment. So how do you deal with everything and make sure nothing gets overlooked and forgotten until it's too late?

Here are some of the ways I keep up with everything. I know everyone has there own way of doing things, but maybe one or two of these ideas will help you, too.

  • Write it down as soon as you think of it. Whether it needs to be done now or later, write it on your list. That way you won't have to try to remember what that was that you need to do. "I know it was important and it just went right out of ...

What happened to a paperless society?! If you're anything like me, papers come home with you from every type of appointment you might have, more paper comes everyday in the mail, paper comes home from school, and on and on. So what do you do with all that paper? Here are some tips to organize your mountain of paper so that everything doesn't go to the mountain and stay there:

  1. Throw away, recycle or shred anything that you obviously don't need. Do it right away before it even goes into the pile. Have a bag handy for recycling and have another bag handy for shredding. (You don't even need to shred it yourself. There are free shredding events in Omaha every Spring and sometimes in the Fall.) Now you've gotten rid of some paper stuff and that sh...

Do you ever feel like you have so much to do that you'll never get it all done? Life is always busy, but there are times that literally everything is important and has to be done right now. How do you juggle everything at once without messing up something important and/or losing your mind? Here are some tips that I use when everything is piling up at once. Hopefully some of them will help you, too.

  1. Everything that has to be done is important, but some things are most important. What are those most important things? Write them down and when they need to be done. What are the steps you will need to do to get them done? Write them down in your planner or tell Siri to remind you on the days that each step needs to be taken. If you can get it all...

I was helping to plan a fundraiser these past few months for an organization that I volunteer at every week. Sometimes time flies when you're having fun and sometimes it just flies. And here it was two weeks before the fundraiser and there was still a lot to be done. When we began this adventure, I suggested we get a group together and divide up the work, but the person I was planning this with likes to do everything herself. And while I do agree that if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself, sometimes it just is not feasible. So let me share a few tips that I have learned for next time (next time?!!) ~

  • Delegate. Even if you think you can do it all yourself, you can't. And even if you are able to accomplish it all by your...

My closet is not nearly big enough. So now that the season has changed, I realize just how packed full it really is. There's no room to cram in even one spring dress. So usually I unload the closet of winter clothes and switch them out for spring and summer clothes, but this year I'm looking at clothes I haven't worn for at least a couple years. I know how it goes, though. If I get rid of something I always wish I had it later. But really, if I haven't worn something in two or three years, there must be a reason. And everything looks better in my memory then it probably did when I wore it. Otherwise I would have worn it all the time and looked spectacular!

So I'm going to clean out my closet this weekend and make a pile of winter clothes to ...
