So the other day I was catching up on the GOOP newsletters (I have a total girl-crush on Gwyneth Paltrow) and came across this post, which I thought was really, really good and just what I needed to read right now. The Californian in me tends to be very easy-going about things and I when I get a little lazy, I can slide deep into disorganized territory. Holidays and birthdays tend to sneak up on me, as do trips and meals, even though all of them happen on a completely predictable basis. So! I'm not calling it a "resolution" by any means, but I need to work on getting myself organized. I don't want to spreadsheet-myself to death like the woman in the first post, but I think there's something to be learned from what she has to say, so I intend on setting some routines for myself and doing a bit of planning for the year ahead, including some gift-planning, weekly meal planning, and signing up on mint.com to track expenses.
What tips do you have to help keep you sane? Any ideas you feel like sharing with me? I think I need all the help I can get.
