How Organized is Your Life? *
Sometimes I feel like I’m drowning in a sea of clutter. From the blocks and Hot Wheels under my feet, to the fifty Post-it Notes stuck to my desk with reminders about doctor’s appointments, business calls, and upcoming engagements.
I am a list-maker by nature, but my lists are really becoming just one more mess.
This was really evidenced last month when I actually missed one of Kara’s doctor visits because I am so dreadfully unorganized.
I envy women who keep their lives neat and tidy. They know when the bills are due, when the sheets need to be changed on the beds, and when the kids have a dentist appointment. I know that in reality, no one is perfect, just maybe a little more organized than me — it doesn’t take much!
While I doubt I’ll ever stop stepping on Cheerios, tripping over Hot Wheels, or tackle organizing the stack of bills laying on my desk, I feel like I have really made some progress due to this wonderfully intuitive app for Windows Phone called AboutOne.
My house? A mess. The important details of my family’s life? Organized, clean, neat, and easy to access. Sigh of relief. AboutOne is really just one more little perk that makes me love my new Nokia Lumia 900 more and more.
Cool AboutOne features
- Store your important receipts for easy access.
- Keep emergency contacts organized.
- Never miss an important event or appointment.
- Save special photos, videos, and artwork.
- Keeps personal health records.
The AboutOne app is really a fantastic little family management tool. I love knowing that my important documents, receipts, contacts, appointments, and even treasured family memories are securely locked into my phone, and available to me with just a simple touch.
A little less chaos
Part of parenting, for me, means that not everything (or almost nothing) will be neat and tidy. Do I really get super stressed about the toys on the floor, and the fact that I almost have to wash a sippy cup when I need one? Nah. It’s just part of raising kids, and I feel pretty accomplished if I get a shower most days.
It does feel extraordinarily gratifying to have something in order, though. There are so many ways my Nokia Lumia 900 makes my life easier, and the AboutOne app is right up there near the top.
Are you organized?
Where do you fall on the neat vs. messy spectrum? Are you completely organized, a mess-a-holic like me, or somewhere in between?
Tasks. Joys. Simply Faster.
