Too Many Notebooks Spoil The Broth

Too many notebooks spoil the broth! 😜

My big focus for the week ahead is decluttering our home office (I can see it taking longer 😆). Minimalism is AN EFFORT! As I’ve been picking through things, I’ve found forgotten notebooks FULL OF FREAKING BLOG POST IDEAS! 😱

I think as I’ve started a new note system they’ve been neglected and the kicker is there are some great ideas in there. The plan is to transfer all of my notes into my pear A5 Saffiano Filofax and I finally fixed the clasp yay!

Once I see an idea has been transferred, I then mark it out with a black pen so I can’t see it or wonder if I have written it down anywhere (this is a tip that I picked up from Mike Vardy aka The Productivityist) This is my new method going forward and I’ll probably share more in a future post.

This is also conveniently part of the October #CrafticChallenge by Craftic.com to ‘use that thing’ I’m feeling more organized already!

How do you stay organized?

  • Random Thoughts
    • How are you spending your extra hour today? I’m working out, then it’s coffee time!
    • The changing of clocks in Autumn feels like I’m back on ‘my time’ not sure if it’s a Scorpio thing or … can’t stand the Spring change feel like I’m out of sync for half the year.
    • I appreciate the extra hour but 6:30pm now feels like 8pm
