My miracle organization system? For real? Every week I have a "staff meeting". With just myself. But I treat it like I'm a little corporation with different "departments" (mine are: economical/budget, household and inventory, creative, work, health and well-being, social, volunteer work, RAK, etc.) and I go down each one and just focus on *those* tasks, writing down what I did for the week and what needs to be done, as well as random information about stuff that happened that week. At the end I make a weekly to do list from all my little notes (which I keep in a black and white composition book) and I know, from that point on, there is NOTHING else I need to think about or accomplish except what's on that to-do list. It's saved my sanity.

If things come up, I either jot them down on a post it for my next staff meeting, or if they are important, I hold another staff meeting.

It's a chance to clear my head every week, and not feel like "am I forgetting something?" all day, every day.

I know it sounds crazy, but it works SO WELL for me.


I really need to pick up The Happiness Project. I see or read about it everywhere, and I'm thinking I'm really missing out on something good.
