Thank you all so much for your comments on the addition of "Organization Sunday" to my blog. It seems to be a popular topic for a lot of us! I know that posting here each week is keeping me more focused on my goal of being more organized and that is a good thing:))
So, how did you all make out with your inboxes? Did you get them cleaned out? Are you staying on top of them? If you didn't finish that task, keep working on it until you get it done. I know mine is a long process with all the groups that I belong to.
ORGANIZATION TIP - Did you know that you could "filter" email to be received in folders instead of directly into your inbox? I have some of the emai that I receive from groups on a regular basis set up to be filtered directly into a folder that is named for that group. The email that I filter are not urgent ones that I need to respond to so I can go back and read them at my leisure when I get a free moment. This keeps my inbox free of less important messages and allows me to respond to more urgent email in a timely manner.
If you don't filter your email and would like to, why not research how you can do that through your email program and set that up? I would like to hear how many of you added filters to your email.
This week I have a couple of links for you to check out. I am sure some of you may have heard of places to go for organizational tips and ideas. I thought that I would highlight some of my favorites here:
I have been utilizing a site called Fly Lady for many years now. This is a great site to learn more about keeping on top of your home, your kids and your meals. There are lots of tips on decluttering and organizing. This site is all about creating routines and doing them continually. No matter where you are with your organizational needs, be sure to start in the Getting Started Section. There is a LOT of information on this site and it can be quite overwhelming when you first start out.
Another helpful site is called Mommysavers.com. There are a lot of topics listed here - one of which being Organization. Some articles from this website are highlighted below.
Another great link is to an article on Mommysavers called 10 Easy Ways to Get Organized written by Jill Cooper.
Another article on Mommysavers that is quick and easy to do is Ten Minute Tricks by Maria Gracia.
That is all that I will leave you with today. If you check out these links, you will have more than enough to keep you busy this week.
Please be sure to leave a comment at the end of this post to update what you have been doing, what you accomplished and what you are working on. It would be great to support each other by knowing what you are doing and what you might need help with.
Happy organizing and I will see you back here next Sunday for another Weekly Organization Tip!
