Are u organized? Do you keep a scheduler and follow it to the letter balance your checkbook have everything in special spots that kind of thing? Myself i am kind of fly by night i try to be organized but it gets the better of me lol. I try to keep lists like for groceries i need and i do keep important papers and reciepts in a special box so i can find them but that is about it. How are u all in all at being organized are you great or in the middle or do you fly by night like i do?

I used to be obessively organized - everything had it's place, everything was recorded when it should be (in checkbooks, ect.), everything was done on time, everything was paid on time and everything was finished on my to do lists daily. It was like a well-oiled machine that just wouldn't quit. Then, I had children . . . and all of that went down the tubes. It's not their fault, of course, it was mine for not figuring out how to add more to what I was doing without failing miserably. I've done well with "my" agenda, but when it comes to adding what everyone else needs and wants me to do I'm terribly disorganized and I feel like a horrible person.

i think i am pretty good in organising things but i can't say that i am really really organised... i am somewhere in the middle but i always try my best to be organised as i don't like things to be messy...

Oh my- I’m probably one of the most Unorganized people- I try my best- I always put off balancing that darn checkbook! I need to do it again- Right now at home I think I have 3 piles of mail and to do piles in the kitchen- and 1 in the garage- It doesn’t help that my sig. other is just as bad! I’m good with things for my daughter- As soon as they come out of the backpack- I sign whatever needs to be signed- attach money if needed and stick it back in- You should see my work desk right now- It’s bad! I have papers everywhere- I have a hard time finding something here at least 2 times a week! Lol One of my goals is to become more organized- I was getting better but it’s slipped lately- Just so busy!

Wow, good for you that you are organized with those things... No, I am not organized at all. I just leave everything in place and look for them every time I need them. I don't have a scheduler that's why I almost forget everything especially now that a lot of things are bothering me. There were just those times that I list down things but it is not being followed...So I just leave things as they come to me...

I am more organized than not. But I tend let things pile up a little bit, then usually on payday everything gets put in its "special spot". I have a bill basket that all my bills go in till payday. I don't have a checkbook so the only balancing I do is figuring out which bills get paid on which payday and how much will be left for grocieries and gas
