31 Days of Getting it Done!

     During the month of October I will be sharing 31 Days of  Getting It Done. I hope to offer helpful hints, inspiring projects and a little bit of everything around the house.
     I have just finished reading Glynnis Whitwer's book, " I Used To Be So Organized". My reason for reading the book was simply this, I USED TO BE SO ORGANIZED! Recently I asked myself "So what happened?"
     I think I have figured out the answer and hope to offer encouragement and inspiration as I make an all out attempt to bring back the order that "once was".
     My first recommendation is: READ THE BOOK if you can. She askes us not only to examine habits, but to examine our hearts as well, and start there.
     Second, start with one small thing that you can accomplish in a day or less, so you can see progress and check it off the list!
Something easy to do today:CLEAR ALL THE PAPER CLUTTER. Sale flyers, old notes, junk mail, old magazines, etc. If you get as much junk mail as I do. It can pile up fast!
     I hpe you'll join me, and let me know how you are doing.

Thanks, Jackie.I like your plan and I think I will join you even though I am late in seeing this. Being organized is a continuing process, isn't it?
