Home Organization Myths Part 2

Another myth that people think are true is…

Myth #2: You have to spend a lot of money to have the right kind of storage.


There are so many discount stores and now and days they have dollar stores that have great storage products that will get the job done.

You must realize that storage doesn't have to be fancy. In fact I use more items from discount stores like Wal-Mart and Dollar Tree, for storage than I do from the big name stores.

Myth #3: It takes a lot of energy and motivation to get your home organized.
This is absolutely false.

It's really only a matter of changing the way you do things and way of thinking differently about the material things you have.

There are some simple rules you can start to live by that will make disorganization a thing of the past. For example, assigning a home for everything in your house!!!

Even if you are not the cause of the clutter and it's a spouse or kids living with you, you can all learn what it takes and just make a few simple changes to live a better and easier life which is of course…BEING ORGANIZED!!!

Home Organization Myths

There's a little misunderstanding about home organization and getting organized I would like to clear up for you.

These myths you should be ignoring and understand home organization isn't as hard as it first appears...

Myth #1: You have to be born organized to live organized!

That is sooooooo Wrong! Some people believe if you don't have organization in your blood, it's going to be nearly impossible to make the changes to how you live and enjoy the simplicity of being organized.

You can truly learn to be organized, and once you do you will see how much easier your life really is, for you and your family.

Come back Friday and see the next 2 myths!!!

It’s TAX TIME!!!

Don’t you just love those two words???

I have made my appointment for Tuesday, so I have been getting everything in order for my tax guy, who I must say I LOVE, if anyone needs a good tax guy let me know!!! This time of year can be very stressful if you are not organized. So by setting up a tax file it can save you a lot of time and trouble when it comes time to file your taxes. Try these ideas for organizing your tax files.

Organize your files into the following categories

Income- Include pay stubs, W-2s, 1099s, interest statements, and dividend statements.

Medical- File receipts for medical expenses, and health insurance out-of-pocket expenses.

Donations-Include receipts for both cash and non-cash donations.

Real Estate- File interest statements from mortgage, tax assessments.

Child Care- This file is for child care payment receipts.

Tax Correspondences-Include any important letters from the IRS or your state revenue service.

Student Loans - File statements of loan interest paid.

Misc. Receipts-Add any receipts that might be needed for deductions.

Payments- Include any records of advance payments.

Old Tax Papers- File by year your old tax returns.

HOMEWORK: Call and make an appointment with your tax guy, or if you do it yourself, set an appointment and SCHEDULE it on your calendar so you will follow through!!!
