Scheduling a "day in"
I spent Sunday catching up on laundry, cleaning my garage, weeding my garden, and figuring out my meal menu for the week. I never left my home and it felt great.
"You don't have time to get organized if you are never home,'' Hatcher says. "You have control over that."
We also have control over priorities. This is where some of us go wrong, Hatcher says. Most people assume that "prioritize" means doing the most important things first. But Hatcher says it is more about determining what you need to do, have to do and want to do each day.
So, I made the mundane chores a priority this weekend. I wanted and needed to clean my garage, the room I enter and exit my home through each day. Now, it's my gateway to a more organized existence.
