Finally Get Organized! Jan 3rd-9th 2016 : My Progress

+DearMYRTLE's first checklist was posted this week.  I am so excited to get started with this organization project!  To prepare I cleaned my office {which is also my crafting space} and did a little bit of organizing.  I hate the color of my office but painting seems like such a pain.  It use to be my son’s room but when he outgrew the color he moved to the other bedroom and redid it for him.  This then became my office and the color is awful!  Some day it will get painted.
  1. Make piles.  I have three that include papers to be filed / scanned, a pile of research to do, and photos.   Included in the list was to make a pile of books but I don’t have many and they are neatly organized.  Also, a pile for letters or email and fortunately for me that is one thing I am caught up on.IMG_20160108_184746
  2. Office supplies.  I bought some more sticky notes {I can never have too many of them} and some labels for my file folders.
  3. Set up your work area.  I cleaned and rearranged my desk space to make more room and moved my crafting table closer to my computer area {don’t worry I will just craft on the dining room table.}  I am considering a third monitor.  I love having two and I usually use my Ipad if I need more space but another monitor would be amazing! {I hope my sweet loving husband is reading this!}IMG_20160108_180920
  4. A place for computer problem notes.  I will be using Evernote.
  5. A place for genealogy challenges notes.  I will be using Evernote.
While working on this project I realized that most of my genealogy is digital so I may have to apply this to my digital files as well.  I know I have one big folder on my computer with genealogy information in it that needs some major attention.

How are you doing on your checklist??
