Simplified Dinners Gluten Free/Dairy Free
Paperless Home Organization
Mystie and I met on-line last year during a lengthy discussion of the Getting Things Done system by David Allen. He is a bottom up org man, as opposed to top down, like my long time friend, Stephen Covey. Anyway, GTD expanded my way of thinking about living a clutter free, organized and balanced life. Mystie was able to take Allen's concepts and distill them into the "do-able" for homeschooling Moms (check out her blog series on GTD here). I was thrilled to have the opportunity to check out the products Mystie put together to make getting things done do-able for regular folks like you and me.
Paperless Home Organization uses three free on-line products (Evernote, Remember the Milk and Google - calendar and email) to create a simple, effective, paper-less, home binder. In this ebook, Mystie walks you through the set-up and use of each of these tools to create a system that is effective. GTD uses a bottom up method of organization, meaning they start with the minutia, create a system to deal with it and go from there. If you aren't a naturally detailed person, this system will help you remember what you would probably forget. If you are, this system will allow you to hone and refine your life. The bottom line is that Mystie's system can assist you in creating effectiveness and efficiency in your life so that you can get on to enjoying the good things.
2) Lack of clutter (I am so all about that!) - no more paper!
3) Affordable (the tools are free. Mystie's ebook practically is)
4) Ease- once you learn the system it's a snap to update.
The downside: it's all on-line. Back up your stuff! Secondly, it does take a while to learn the new apps if you are not familiar with them. I liked some of the features and will fore-go others. Again, that's part of the beauty of the system- you create something that works for you. For just $3.99 it just makes sense!
