I did this series not to make it sound like this system is perfect. it's constantly being tweeked. In fact, last year after reading the Mind Organization for Moms I came up with an in box. It's actually helped a LOT. My kids were just dumping papers on the kitchen table and I felt like I needed to go through them then to sift out what was important so it didn't get lost. Now, I have an inbox by my computer and I clean it out every couple of days. It's been huge for me, and it's just one less thing I don't have to think about.
I'm hoping to go through the Mind Organization a bit more and pick out a few more things that will help me.
I'd love to hear more about what helps you stay organized. I hope this has been helpful for you. :)
