There's just too little of it! And I'm finding that the more I try to follow some scheduling or time management system, the more things get out of whack and the more stressed I get! Though I do feel like I am getting the paperwork and bill paying aspects of life a bit more under control. I recently read an article by Kacy Paide, who isn't really trying to push any particular product, she was just advising that you need to have a "catch-all" basket or place to put the critical mail and paperwork that needs to be addressed timely and set up a schedule for processing it. Once I go through the mail, sort out the junk and recycle it, and identify the important stuff, I then go and just put it on top of my keyboard. That way, I'm not tempted to do other, fun things on the internet first, I have to take care of those bills! Kacy focuses on office organization (The Inspired Office is the name of her website), and she offers her services in the Washington DC area. I haven't tried her services (yet), but her website and weekly email tips are helpful. In fact, if I had more time, I'd be following her tips way more than I've had the chance to!
