Controlling the Chaos Challenge-Days 10-14

Apparently I have am MUCH farther behind (in posting) for this series than I anticipated.   I have been following my calendar but I have not been sharing with you and I apologize.

I can’t say our house has been chaotic.  It has actually been quite calm (and neat) but we have been struggling with more difficult than usual health issues, which of course effects, everything.   That, in addition to the all the projects I have going, plus internet issues has definitely set me back on posting this series but enough excuses, let’s get down to business.

Controlling the Chaos-Sort, File, Shred, Scan and Organize Those Papers!

COntrolling the Chaos Daily Template

Sorting, filing, shredding and scanning is what we will be doing for days 6, 7, 8, and 9.

Yep, you read that right.

We are taking four days to sort, file, shred and scan our papers.  Remember you are to be creating, testing and labeling your new systems as you do this.

We are taking four days so that we have NO EXCUSES for not getting a handle on our paperwork before we present it to our families next week.

Still need inspiration?  Don’t be afraid to return to Controlling the Chaos-Day 5 for ideas and don’t put it all off until the last day.  The idea of taking four days is to remove the stress and be thorough in our processes.
