How I Get Back On Track After A Busy Month

Did you ever have one of those months?  Yes?  Well, I’ve just had one.  The only way to describe how busy I’ve been is to say this –

I have stopped trying to take a day off.  Nope.  Now, I simply try to find the time to eat lunch – seated – at a real table, instead of eating while riding in my car.

Even the most-organized person in the world, when overwhelmed with work, will tend to put financial matters on the back-burner.  Well, I’m NOT the most-organized person.  I’m a slightly-above-average-organized person, and over the past few weeks, I’ve really struggled to stay on top of things.

Hopefully, life is beginning to slow down a bit, and I’m ready to focus, once again, on my personal finances.

  1. I need to balance my checkbook.
  2. I need to login to all of my online checking and savings accounts, verify balances, and confirm transfers.
  3. I need to go through the stack of papers on my counter-top and organize my bills, using the bills-in-a-box system.  (Hopefully, I’ll have time in the next few days to produce and post the oft-promised bills-in-a-box video.)

Once I do these things, I’ll FEEL better.  Right now, I just don’t feel ‘locked in’.

I want to thank those of you who have faithfully visited the site.  You guys rock!

Your emails and comments have kept me motivated – and they’ve made me miss – really miss – blogging.

Expect regular posting to resume – as of now!!!

  1. Hey, if we only blogged when we had everything else “together”, the web would be a much emptier place.

    Keep the posts coming. Don’t let a little disorganization stand in the way of shouting from your virtual soap box!

  2. I feel your pain. I’m also trying to stay on top of the daily grind. I have a full time job along with running a part time blog. Though I just came to this realization that I can’t do everything every day. So I have found myself prioritizing myself more. I am trying to schedule my time more effectivlly so I can spend more time with my family and a little leizure time for myself.
    I look forward to reading more.
