My desk threw up....

February 8th, 2007 at 08:52 am

Papers are everywhere in the house right now. Don't know how this all got out of control. This morning, I even found the Christmas file. Sheesh. I have been working on financial stuff, the tax file is pending, Christmas file needs to be finalized and put away, paid bills need to be filed, stuff needs to be shredded, and my price book needs holes punched and notebooked. I even have a letter I need to reply to from a friend sitting here from before Christmas. This is seriously looking like a paperwork day. Putting away receipts, unearthing the organizer/calendar, putting things away. I might need to designate a day for organizing papers. I love to play with the computer and spreadsheets and budgets. Now, I have to buckle down and do the not so fun stuff. I'm such a proscratinator. I really don't mind it, I just seem to make a bigger mess than fix the small one. I think paper multiplies like coat hangers.....

    love the title!!!!

    perhaps instead of a paperwork day you could start a habit of doing paperwork as a mutitasking. for instance, anytime you put clothes in the dryer, you file till they're done. or change 'clothes in the dryer' to 'casserole in the oven' or 'kids in the shower' or whatever would work best for you. that way you don't' feel like you have 5 hours worth of stuff to do all at once...

    I try to make a point to work in a direction, from left to right say, and clean during commericals so it becomes like a game. My mom's a pack rat and has piles everywhere, I think it's like rabbits too.

    I have had a filing system and it worked marvously well. DH did not appeciate it. As Tinebeana says, "If it aint broke, don't fix it."

    Admittingly, I have felt like if I died today, what on earth would my family do? They all depend on mother dear here. My husband does not even know why we keep receipts all of the time. He sure can not keep up with them.
