    I get organized the old fashioned way…lots of post-it notes!!ReplyCancel

  • Leah WilliamsJuly 7, 2014 - 6:48 am

    Back when I actually was organized 😉 I used to do a “brain dump” regularly. I’d take a legal pad and write down everything that came to mind that I needed to do or read or think about or whatever. Even those odd-ball projects. Then I’d sort it and make prioritized to-do lists and I’d get a good bit of it done. Often, I’d start with areas in which I needed to dump some of my brain, like “homeschool” and “craft projects” and “church activities,” “budgetary concerns,” etc. Lately, I can barely pull together a proper to-do list!ReplyCancel

  • KimJuly 7, 2014 - 9:19 am

    Whenever I need to get organized, I find it the most effective to make a list/plan of attack SOMETHING so when the inevitable distraction arises, I can resume what I was doing with minimal head-scratching of “what was I doing again??”ReplyCancel

  • anne emnettJuly 7, 2014 - 9:26 am

  • DawnJuly 7, 2014 - 10:01 am

    I would love to see a bundle for working moms. There are many catholic working moms out there that would love a goals section for balancing work/home! I would definitely purchase that! Great calendar and would love this!ReplyCancel

  • Kay SartoriJuly 7, 2014 - 10:10 am

    Wow!!!! I love the homeschooling bundle!!! Being a homesteader and homeschooling mama, some days are less organized than others.
    Some days i feel like I’m herding kids and teaching the goats the alphabet, haha.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel M StraussJuly 7, 2014 - 1:00 pm

    I get organized with color coded labels, files, lists, etc. It is especially helpful for my daughter and her visual processing. It also makes things easy to find and they look pretty, too.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa SchmidtJuly 7, 2014 - 1:36 pm

    One of my favorite ways to get organized is to take everything out of the space I’m attempting to bring to order, and then only put back no more than half of it, donating or tossing the other half.ReplyCancel

  • ChantalJuly 7, 2014 - 2:32 pm

    I would love to win this give a way!ReplyCancel

  • CristinaJuly 7, 2014 - 3:41 pm

    Lists, lists, lists and lists, that’s how I organize. I also don’t “listen” to my phone when I walk into the office. I plan for 15 minutes (usually with my online blogging buddy, Tiffany) and then get to work!ReplyCancel

  • YvonneJuly 7, 2014 - 5:10 pm

    I have been waiting to buy a different planner but this is EXACTLY what I need. ThanksReplyCancel

  • BarbJuly 7, 2014 - 8:17 pm

    I love technology, but I get organized best by WRITING THINGS DOWN. I’m intrigued by all the cool lists and forms included in the bundle!ReplyCancel

  • Rachael MartinezJuly 8, 2014 - 6:42 am

    planners, calendars and using the calendar on my phone is how i attempt to get organized ha!ReplyCancel

  • MaryJuly 8, 2014 - 8:14 am

    I need to make lists to get organized. I like writing with pen and paper, and am much more inclined to use a paper planner than a calendar on my phone or computer.ReplyCancel

  • Shawndra HallJuly 8, 2014 - 8:58 am

    I stay organized through to-do lists and an always updated calendar! Without those 2 things, I’d go crazy!!ReplyCancel

  • LisaJuly 8, 2014 - 9:18 am

    This would be so awesome since this fall we begin home-schooling for the first time and I’ll need to be organized more than ever before!ReplyCancel

  • Maxine NunezJuly 8, 2014 - 9:46 am

    I use a planner and make many, many lists to stay organized.
    This looks awesome! I am especially interested in the Household Management Planner. Will you have a price option for purchasing an add-on without the main planner?ReplyCancel

  • ireneJuly 8, 2014 - 11:18 am

    Organization is a must for me! Keeping track of to-do-list, projects, events, etc…is vital for me. I find it easier to write it instead of using my cell phone. Keeps me on task and happy:)ReplyCancel

  • Sarah CJuly 8, 2014 - 11:18 am

    I still keep everything in my head, despite all my attempts to go “digital” with my calendar. It’s not the best way. I think I’m going to go back to the “old fashioned” paper planner, because when I had one, I used it!ReplyCancel

  • Amy LumleyJuly 8, 2014 - 11:31 am

    For me everything must be put on my online google calendar, but I feel I also need to have a hard copy for the kids to see and this would be perfect!ReplyCancel

  • kristina edsonJuly 8, 2014 - 11:38 am

    I use an old fashioned planner- I need the feel of pen on paper! I also regularly purge my apartment to keep clutter to minimum.ReplyCancel

  • MaryJuly 8, 2014 - 12:00 pm

    I LOVE to use a planner that can travel with me so I can write in things “on the go” instead of having to wait & try to remember when I get home. 😉 (Don’t have a smartphone or any sort of “app” phone … I like pen & paper much better!)ReplyCancel

  • Elizabeth CopelandJuly 8, 2014 - 12:25 pm

    Purging every month…it’s amazing how much stuff kids accumulate.ReplyCancel

  • Andrea ReadJuly 8, 2014 - 12:36 pm

    My current organizing tool is the big chalkboard I have hanging in my kitchen. I write down all appointments, parties, or other responsibilities on there, use it for homeschooling, and sometimes use it as a quick reminder of what needs to be purchased at the grocery store. I would be lost without my chalkboard.ReplyCancel

  • SashaJuly 8, 2014 - 12:53 pm

    Do you think I could use it with a discbound system?ReplyCancel

  • NatasiaJuly 8, 2014 - 4:07 pm

    I would love the planner to organize my family and my classroom 🙂ReplyCancel

  • JoanJuly 8, 2014 - 7:38 pm

  • BethJuly 8, 2014 - 8:25 pm

    I get organized with Google calendars. Everything goes on the calendar– bills, menus, activities, and work. The only catch is that I don’t have an i-phone, so if I don’t have internet access, I don’t have my life!ReplyCancel

  • LynnJuly 9, 2014 - 9:36 am

    Google calendar is my friend!!!ReplyCancel

  • CindyJuly 9, 2014 - 10:06 pm

    Katie,

    Downloads will be available next Tuesday – it is an eventual goal to be able to offer this in print, but for now, this was the quickest way to get it into many hands. 🙂ReplyCancel

    I am currently revisiting the Household Notebook concept with my organization. I’m a full-time CNA at a hospital, a full time college student (NOT in nursing), beginning blogger, a wife and mother… So having a central item where everything can be organized is proving essential to me. The Calendar and Blog planner would be very helpful (not to mention very pretty from the previews I’ve seen!)ReplyCancel
