Is it Spring yet? You’d think it was months off with the temperatures so low the last couple of days. Need something to hold you over until Spring really arrives? How about a celebration? Send In Maureen is now 5 years old! YAY!!!!! Time for a little soiree, don’t you think? Scroll down for all the particulars and be sure to Save The Date: 3/22/11
I just love March! It’s my anniversary, it’s the heralding of spring and more of my wonderful organizing clients contact me than in any other month of the year! It’s so much fun to work with people who are eager to leave those dark winter months behind and start to bring new energy into their home or business. It must be a ‘creature’ thing. No matter how complex our human brains are, we’re still so often affected by the change of seasons, the lunar cycles and who knows what other strictly natural factors. So we might as well put those ‘animal urges’ to good use, yes?
Music, Movies, Books, Oh My!
If you’re like me, you come across titles of CD’s, books or movies that you’re interested in but you don’t want to buy one every time you think of it. So how do you keep track of these ‘someday’ items?
You can create ‘wish lists’ on iTunes and Amazon! You can even create accounts at the local county libraries.
Want to listen to a few songs before you buy the CD? Go to YouTube and watch the videos. It’s a great way to test the waters before you commit. You can also purchase individual songs on iTunes without shelling out for the whole CD. Then you can make your own mix CDs of your favorites! (Don’t forget to click on SendInMaureen’s link on YouTube for a few little videos and a quick laugh!)
If you’re not inclined to tackle learning how to use these sites yet, you can go about it in other ways. Create an entry (as if you’re recording a name and address) in Outlook or Google Contacts (or your Address Book on Mac). Name it something like ‘Media Wishlist’ and add the titles whenever they come to mind.
Want to do it all without using the computer? Keep a paper file or a notebook to house your various ‘interests’. Beyond your standard Financial, Legal, Medical documents, you can have files that contain any information you want to keep track of. Don’t let little slips of paper and Post It notes overrun your desktop. Put these items in a file so you can retrieve them easily. Name it ‘Interests – music’ or ‘Interests – books’ and all your Interests files will be neatly nestled together. (Cozy!)
Spring into Action!
Don’t know where to start? Just begin by thinking about your goals for your space. Do you want to find things more easily? Have less ‘stuff’ overall? Create a simpler, lovelier environment? You don’t have to know ‘how’ to achieve these goals; that’s where we professional organizers really shine. You just have to imagine the results you want to achieve. Then call me. I’ll help you do the rest.
Organizing is what I do best and it’s what I love to do. And believe me, once you’re better organized you’ll be better at everything else you do too!
