Are you looking for some Organisation Inspiration? Maybe you are unsure of where to start? If the answer is yes, then I have some pretty exciting news to share!
If you are trying to organise your life in any way, a really great starting point probably is a Family Command Centre.
First of all what exactly is a command centre? Well, it is designated space that contains the items necessary to keep your family organised throughout the year while still being functional and of course pretty.
An effective command centre contains a variation of many items. A calendar, a notice board, an inbox, a memo board, stationery, menu plan, family schedule and maybe even some inspirational printouts. Whatever suits your needs is what you need to include, but whatever you choose to include, here is some eye candy to get you started.
Maintaining accountability to myself has never been easy. If you have ever listened to Gretchen Rubin’s podcaster, Happier, you will no doubt have heard her talking about The Four Tendencies. This podcast is one of my top 5 favourites that I listen to. (You can find the other ones here). Gretchen has earmarked four distinct personality types when it comes to dealing with both inner and outer expectations, and by determining which personality type you are, you can adjust your behaviours to help you reach your goals.
Every year there are so many people that I send birthday or anniversary cards too. New friends are made, new relationships have formed, new additions are welcomed into the family, and sometimes it is hard to keep a track of it all.
Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! I love the possibilities that a new year promises. A fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning. Bring it on.
Last year I shared that I have never been good at making New Years Resolutions. Or more accurately, I am great at making them, not so good at keeping them. (You can check out that post here.)
Things have been pretty quiet around here lately. Not because there is not much going on, but because there is so much going on.
As a bookkeeper, year end is an extremely busy time. I work a part time bookkeeping job, as well as looking after the accounts for one other company every quarter. Just to get them ready for his accountant.
But as well as the end of financial year chaos that is happening right now, I have also been very busy behind the scenes completing the online certification to become an Evernote Community Leader.
And let me tell you, I am so excited.

I have been using Evernote for a few years now. Four years to be exact. Mostly, I used it for keeping track of my Master To Do List. Occasionally I would see something on a website and store it there to read later. A list of books to read, recipes to try, TV shows to watch, podcasts to listen to, products to look at. You get the idea.
And whilst I have always loved the idea of having a portable organisation system with me, I really wasn’t putting it to good use.
But back in January, I posted about my Life Goals Vs New Years Resolutions and in this post I talked about how I wasn’t going to make resolutions, I was going to concentrate on some goals that I have set for myself.
One of these goals was to move towards digitising my life. I mean really digitising. My vision is to have next to no paperwork in the house. To be able to access everything on the fly. To be able to pull up the information that I need at the drop of a hat. And let me tell you, I am already on my way.
But today I really wanted to share with you my top 10 reasons why I am organising my life with Evernote and why I am in love with this program.
Happy new year and welcome to 2017! A new year always seems to signify changes. Changes we want to make. Changes to what is happening in our lives. Different milestones. New goals. New Years Resolutions.
I must admit, I have never been good at making New Years Resolutions. Actually, let me rephrase that. I have always been great at making them, just never that good at keeping them.
