Growing up, I had the standard play kitchen set. And like most little girls, when it came time to clean up, toy plates, miniature pots and plastic food was everywhere. One day my mom (who just so happens to be the DO in d.o. organize) said, ‘the food goes in the refrigerator, the plates go in the cupboard, and the pots go in the oven.’ And from that day forward, the food went in the refrigerator, the plates were stacked in the cupboard, and the pots, with matching lids, were in the oven…Little Miss Organized was born.
I could tell countless stories like this one, where I took something unorganized, and made it work! I often receive accolades for my time and project management skills. What’s my secret? Having an organizational system in place that makes sense.
Last year, the most amazing thing in the world happened to me – I became a mom. And she changed everything. No longer was I organizing and managing a family of three (my husband, our chocolate lab and me), but all of the sudden, ± 9 months, baby made four. Talk about organization – working a full-time job, managing million-dollar budgets, while managing a household…on a much smaller budget! I developed time- and money- saving strategies to save my pocketbook and my sanity. And now I’d like to share those strategies to help you.
