A Day For Organizing

It had to be done.

Yesterday, I spent several hours organizing paperwork, responding to emails, paying bills, cleaning out my desk, and filing documents.

It was boring, headache-educing, and, as my youngest would say, “none fun”.

Normally, I’m a pretty organized person.  I have several systems in place for managing bills, paperwork, etc.  However, the past two months were filled with much activity – tons of fun stuff with family and encouraging progress at work.

So, yesterday, I sat down with a huge stack of paperwork, a large cup of coffee, and started digging.

I will not bore you with too many details (I filed some paperwork, paid a few bills, sorted through email, updated passwords, etc.)  It was tedious, but necessary work.  And it reminded me –

Life is better, organized.


What took me almost an entire day (minus a couple of hours spent interacting with actual, live humans, in conversation), should have been dealt with in a few minutes, once or twice a week.

Side note – A few weeks ago, I took a trip to Washington D.C. with my son and other family members.  I highly recommend a visit, if you have never been.  The D.C. Metro is clean and efficient, the various Smithsonian Museums were amazing, and the views from Arlington were breathtaking.

    Am one of those person who can’t function in a disorganized space. I usually feel like my mind is being pulled in a thousand directions. Over time I have worked up a plan that ensures I organize my documents and declutter stuff at least once a week. Increasingly though am moving my douments and other transactions online where its easier to manage and keep track of.
