How do you stay organized and still find time to write?
Good question. It is a work in progress to be honest. I am a huge fan of charts, schedules and routines. I make a lot of my own organizational tools. I also customize inspiring ideas I find online and use printables created by fantastic organization blogs.
Some of my favorite places to find great organizing printables:
I use different methods depending on what I am trying to accomplish and the target person. Visual reminders and planning ahead works for my entire family. Consistency in schedule and routine helps everyone to know what needs to be done and what is expected. Using organizational tools helps save so much time, meet deadlines and stay on track. It also helps Ginger and Blondie learn responsibility, be independent and provides positive reinforcement.
Here are a few of the ways I stay organized. I will go into each project area further in a detailed post. You can also read more of our methods at Summer Shock , How to Avoid the Toy Store Drama and Weathering the Storm with My Special Child.
