A Quest for Organization

Like many of you folks out there, I feel the need to get more organized. To that end I have signed up for 30Boxes, one of those websites that helps you keep track of dates. You can put in everything from Doctor’s appointments to birthdays and they will send you a reminder e-mail a day before the event. If you would like me to know your Birthday/Anniversary/etc. feel free to comment with the date and event. I’ll gladly add it to my lovely little account. I wonder where I’ve been hiding that I haven’t heard about this before.

Also, in the spirit of organizational zeal that I’m working on, I have purchased a [tag]Mail Organizer[/tag] (shown above) from the [tag]Acorn[/tag] catalog. Hopefully, this will help me to go from this:

to something a wee bit neater. I’ll finally have a spot where my keys belong. Yay! Right now I just sort of drop them somewhere. I try to leave them on top of one of my bookcases, but I’m not very reliable about doing that. Here’s hoping that this makes a difference.

Do you have any organizational tips to pass along? (Yes, I know that I need to de-junk. I also need to find someplace closer to take my recyclables. My apartment doesn’t offer recycling. Le Sigh.)

    Your apartment doesn’t have recycling? Ugh! That must make things much harder! No matter what I do, it seems like there are never-ending waves of paper coming into this place. It’s all I can do to keep up with recyling them.

    That organizer looks very handy!

    Hi Emma!

    Yeah. I have to lug all my recycling up to my parents’ place when I go visit. I try to recycles some of my plastic bottles and batteries at work, but I don’t want to bury them in my recyclables.
