I am so sick of being disorganized..... I need helpful suggestions on how to make my life less messy! My problem is mostly with papers if I throw it away I always needed it or I just have a pile that I don't know how to tame!

invest in a filing cabinet of folder is my advice... i couldn't live without my folder, it makes my life so much easier everything is sorted so that when i need something it's easier to find and it also looks neat and tidy and little fingers can't rummage through and disorganize it all.....
Also make lists and keep a diary with all appointments and bill due dates etc. written in it

That is actually very helpful! The spreadsheet idea will really help I think because that way I can have everything on one paper and not a bunch of different papers and bills....thanks!

I have a tray on dressor that I put all my papers and once a week (just a central location). I use to try and do it in the afternoon when my dauthers where at school, but my youngest just didn't seem to intrested with mommy trying to get organized. So now I wait till everyone goes to sleep and do it then. Depends on the day. What also helps is that I have a spreadsheet on my computer for which I have separate columns for random notes or numbers so I don't have a bunch of sticky notes for scrap papers.



What also helped it that I put all my bills on a monthly spreadsheet to help me budget easier. When the bill comes in the mail the actual amount goes in the box on the spreadsheet and the bill gets filed. Hope it helps.
