Each Wednesday is Desk Day–What’s in Your Desk?

My DeskEach Wednesday is Desk Day

  • Pay Bills
  • Catch up on personal and family business by paying bills, sending notes, cards, letters and emails, and making any needed phone calls
  • File–Store only those papers you will need in a way that you will be able to locate them when needed

Do you have a desk?

Is it functional?

First gather the papers from your desk and sort them. You do not need out of date coupons, information on activities that have passed, most records that are over 3 to 7 years old. Memorabilia belongs in a memory box.

Empty your desk of papers and stock it with the supplies you need.  Use a desk organizer  for small items.

Which of these items do you have? Which do you need? Do you have more than you need?

List the items you do not have but need.

Donate the items you have in excess.

Toss the items that do not work—staplers that do not staple, pens that do not write.

Add items to the list specific to your needs. Make notes on what you need, how many you need, what you have an excess of.

Each Wednesday is the day to catch up with your paperwork, bills, and other family business.

  • Pay bills
  • Bring any and all issues you can up to date—Make phone calls, write notes, pay bills, and
  • File

The Area of Focus this week is the Living Room/Family Room. How are your windows? Are they clean? Are your curtains or drapes clean? Do they need to be dusted, vacuumed or laundered? Don’t forget to dust the frames and blinds.
