I think I just hit a new milestone in my organizational efforts. I just finished tagging and categorizing the last of my blog posts. A long effort but finally done. I almost want to take a moment to step back and admire my handiwork. But unfortunately, today I’ll be heading off to party hosted by the Huddarts. So I don’t have time to stop and celebrate, at least not until tonight. 🙂
In addition I finished balancing my accounts and ledgers this morning. This could not of been possible, if I had not yesterday filed away most of my papers. The expanding file idea seems like a stroke of genius now. I can easily find everything, takes up less space and I feel organized. I managed to compress space and create time. And this all thanks to a bit of time, money and effort. My next goal will involve clearing out the junk and clutter I’ve collected over the years. With some effort, time and perhaps a bit of money I’ll finally be able to live neatly in the small room that I own.
Still this week my schedule suffered from my efforts. I have walked around sleep deprived. I put off tasks that need to finish. But at least I can safely say my long term goals and projects seem closer to realization.
OK, moment of reflection over. I need to plan for tonight. And I need to acquire breakfast. Also I need to get to those defered tasks. Maybe I can find time to move my projects forward too.
Yesterday proved to be a productive day. I am pleased with the expanding file I bought. I could finally find an organized place for all those bills, receipts and miscellanous loose leaves of paper that clutter my room. In addition I am caught up on my correspondence. Looks like I’m making progress in the dating game too, something I thought would never come about. Of course I will not for sure until I know for sure. Still as the amount of near-misses increases, so does the likelyhood of a hit. All in all I am at ease.
I still need to organize more and clear up both my physical and digital clutter. The digital clutter only requires time. But I am severly lacking space in the physical world, and I am not sure how to deal with this. I have to either consolidate something or get rid of a large volume. Nothing really comes to mind that can help me with this. I do have some ideas. When you are dealing with a small space, you have to get real creative with managing space. And no the answer is not digitizing as much as possible, since that takes too long. I might need to do some research into this problem.
For the most part, I’ve dealt with my lack of time problem. I make time and tunnel out chunks of free time when I can. But making space eludes me at the moment.
UPDATE: I read up some interesting ideas for saving space. Need to get rid of stuff especially out of date things, unused clothes, and old pointless notes. Also I need to see if I can convert objects into money, as that will help motivate me to cut deeper. Hmm… this is gonna take some time and effort.
