What are your priorities?

Hiring a maid service is a good investmentThe author of this very interesting piece is very clear about what she likes – and doesn’t like.    One thing she does  NOT like is cleaning!  She makes the conscious  choice to buy a smaller house, so that she  can still afford to have her home professionally cleaned.   No reason to feel guilt!

Here’s an excerpt:

Best money I’ll ever spend.

Some women try to do it all — work themselves to the bone at the office and at home, find time for their husband, run the kids to activities and maybe find 15 minutes to soak in a bath. Or they’re forced to.

I’ve got options: If I work a little harder each week, I can afford to pay for the cleaning lady myself. And that means freedom.

Overcoming Disorganization

Posted on March 7, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Atlanta maid and house cleaning service.You may be disorganized because you  are a visual processor.  You LIKE to be surrounded by a mess because it is stimulating – and it reminds you to do your work.  But it backfires, since you waste a lot of time searching for things.

Try this solution:  Separate papers into a pile you need to do and a pile you can think about doing.  Use folders or boxes in different colors – that way your stuff is organized but you are still visually stimulated.  Set up a system that works for you, and start with basic steps, like putting your keys in the same place everyday.
