Goal 29. Move

Wow! So this is the only one word goal on my list, but it is probably the most life-altering one on here! We are currently in the middle of planning for our move which takes place on July 1! Yup, we have both given notice at work, have told our manager (but not technically given notice, which we should do!) and are searching for future jobs. Prince Charming is going to University of Alberta for a Bachelor of Education and I will be working as an LPN in Edmonton. I just got my notice that I am eligible for licensing in Alberta, and so the job search begins.

There is a lot of work going on right now, both in finishing things well and planning for future things. And this requires a lot of waiting, patience and communication. Which are not things that I am great at but here are some things I have been learning.

Goal 40b. Make a useable Home Management Binder

So last week I discussed how I have made my Finder into my version of a Home Management Binder. This week I want to discuss what goes into my Home Management Binder Folders, and how this works for me. The best thing about this system is that now I don't have a million scraps of paper all of the place that I have to clean. Even when my home management binder is disorganized and messy it is all contained within my laptop and disappears when I turn off the screen. Nice!

Goal 40: Make a home management notebook

I love the idea of organization. I spend lots of time reading blogs, magazines and books about how to organize and have collected thousands (really thousands!) of tips about organizing. But I also have a secret. I am not very organized.

I am really good at collecting tips and designing new ways to be organized. But when it comes to maintaining things I am pretty darn lazy not very good. This was the problem with any home management book I have devised until now.
