One of my biggest goals for 2013 is getting organized & on top of things. I treated myself to this address book after scrambling and being late with holiday boxes because I couldn’t track down addresses. I ordered cards to save for next year from Betsy Ann Paper after totally flaking on sending cards this year. I just ordered this desktop jotter for 2013, as well as some thank you notes from the same sale.
I’m also working on a crazy budget spreadsheet that I’m happy to share once I get all the formulas set up, if anyone’s interested. Sean and I don’t share accounts, but I set up a separate bill pay account and am taking this week to switch all my auto-payments over. Part of the budget spreadsheet also figures out yearly payments needed divided by 12, and gives me the amount to set aside every month so we don’t have major surprises with property taxes or insurance payments. Yes, I made it to 37 without doing stuff like this. But I’m on it now, and hopefully it’ll make life just a little more smooth.
Do you have any tips or tricks for organization in the new year?
