Monday Morning Check-In

Happy Monday morning my friends! I hope you had a terrific weekend, and a safe and happy new year celebration! Here's my Monday update...


Play List:

  • Boot camp. Check!
  • New Year’s Eve celebration. Yes! Very relaxing.


To Finish:

  • Freebie Friday post. Check!
  • Laundry. Washed – yes. Still have a load to fold. But most of the hampers are empty. (Not too bad for a holiday weekend.)
  • January’s Get Organized Checklist. Check!
  • Put away the holiday decorations and take down the tree. Check! So glad to have that taken care of. 
  • Take care of a few more returns. On today’s list. 
  • Finish 2011 bookkeeping. Progress was made. I have until the January 15 to get it all wrapped up, and we're in good shape to hit that deadline.


How was your weekend? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.


Have a great Monday!

I've made a tickler file in evernote.
It's called Tickler 2012
The tickler file is a separate notebook and then each month of the year is a new note.
So far some of the things I put in there are check my birthday list and organize attic Storage
I added a few items to November and December while I was putting things from this year away

I love your monthly check list but hadn't started a tickler file yet I also plan to have a physical tickler file for things like where to find the address list for the Christmas cards I still hand write mine so it's not on the computer
