As a busy mum, do you ever find yourself with piles of paper all over the house?
I used to have a pile on a shelf in the kitchen where all the bit of paper that came into the house used to reside. Doctors letters, dentist appointments, eye tests, MOT reminders, credit card bills, bank statements, you name it: it went into the pile.
As a result I was always losing important bits of information.
I would put the dentist’s appointment reminder on the shelf and somehow convince myself that because it was there, I wouldn’t forget. Wrong.
So many appointments were wasted due to my inefficient system, and I’m sure my dentist was ready to throttle me!
Even if your house is small, you can still create a system that works for you. You don’t need a huge desk and a mountain of in trays to be a little more organised (I promise).
Armed with a small shelf, a concertina box file and a couple of lever arch files and a steely determination, you can create a perfectly manageable filing system that works for you and keeps your life running smoothly.
Remember, make things happen, don’t make excuses.
