In The Paper Solution, I teach you how to ditch your file cabinet and replace it with portable, functional binders for reference papers. The Paper Solution will tell you how to set up your binders, gives you access to sample printables, and gives you a list of what to include in each of the binders I recommend you create. 
 
 
The idea for this binder grew from my career as a teacher. I think of this binder as a lesson plan for my home and family - I want to keep track of and grow the traditions that are meaningful to the people in my family and I want to reduce the things that do not bring joy or value to my family. 
 
I created this binder to help keep track of ideas for celebrating and decorating for different holidays. I also keep childcare information, pet information, and meal plan information in this binder. I want it to be a single place someone could go to step in and help with our family routines and care. This is a place to keep the things you want to remember from our three times a year Blitz - like summer ideas or winter holiday plans. 
 
The Household Operations Binder allows you to hand off care of your home, children, or pets to another person. It keeps all of the details and information in a single place. It also helps you to keep your ideas together in one place so that it is easy to transition into fun. For details on what to include in your binder, listen to the podcast and then check out page 218 of The Paper Solution.

Welcome to the newest Wednesday Podcast! On Wednesdays, I get to talk with members of the Organize 365 community as they share the challenges, progress, missteps, and triumphs along their organizing journey. You can see and hear transformation in action. I look forward to helping YOU get Organized!
 
Today’s Transformational Podcast features my conversation with Melissa S. Missy lives with her husband and 3 girls. She shares how she has used the skills she has learned from her Sunday Basket® and the 100 Day Program to transform her paper and home. She shares how she makes time for her 15 minute a day task, has helped settle her mom's estate, and how the Warrior Mama binder has helped with her kid's education. Missy shares her own challenges with ADHD and how she has gone from living a reactive to a proactive life (and how that is so much easier on her brain!).
 
I hope you enjoy her story and find her as inspiring as I do!
 
I am grateful that you are reaching out to share your stories and progress with me and with the Organize 365 community. If you are ready to share your story with us, please apply at https://organize365.com/wednesday

In The Paper Solution, I teach you how to ditch your file cabinet and replace it with portable, functional binders for reference papers. The Paper Solution will tell you how to set up your binders, gives you access to sample printables, and gives you a list of what to include in each of the binders I recommend you create. 

The Financial Organizing Binder

In full honesty, this is last binder I made for myself, but it was probably the most important binder I made. Money can be a tricky and emotional topic, so give yourself grace if you are new to this topic. I help as the executor of both my grandmother and my father, and I saw what a blessing it is to the people you love to have your financial papers in order and organized. 

The Financial Organizing Binder is meant to keep track of past purchases and closed loans, current bill pay checklists and active accounts, and dreams for the future with retirement accounts and some celebration of life (funeral) information. It is meant to be a help to your family, or you can use it when you need to settle someone else's estate. 

The Financial Organizing Binder allows you to keep your past, present, and future finances together in a portable and organized system. For details on what to include in your binder, listen to the podcast and then check out page 196 of The Paper Solution

The Medical Organizing Binder

Before my father passed away, I was his power of attorney for health care. I was doing my best, but I did not know his medical history, diagnosis, or even his medications. I started out writing down information on scraps of paper, but I was traveling several hours between my home and his, and it was hard to keep it organized. Having test and lab results recorded in an organized way helps me to feel less anxious and more informed.  

The Medical Organizing Binder keeps track of your diagnosis, family history, and what is normal for you (or for the person you care for). Everything I and the medical team could want to know about my children is organized in one place. And, in the US, digital medical records are not kept indefinitely and they do not always transfer between providers. The Medical Organizing Binder allows you to keep a complete personal medical history in a portable and organized system. For details on what to include in your binder, listen to the podcast and then check out page 209 of The Paper Solution

The Household Reference Binder

The Household Reference Binder is the first binder I ever made, and it is one of the easiest to assemble. The Household Reference Binder is all of the papers about your home that you would pass on to a new person moving into the home. It works for homeowners and for renters. The Household Reference Binder is one complete inventory of your appliances, repair information, service providers, and decoration choices like paint colors. 

My Household Reference Binder repeatedly saves me time, headaches, and money. Everything I could want to know about my home is organized in one place. For details on what to include in your binder, listen to the podcast and then check out page 188 of The Paper Solution available at organize365.com/book

On the Wednesday Podcast this week, I share my conversation with Angela Watson. Angela is the creator and teacher of the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. Her program helps teachers become more prepared and organized so they can spend less time at work and have a sustainable career.

We talk about the many choices we have made to pivot during the safe at home experience. Angela and I deep dive into some of the challenges teachers are facing while teaching remotely. We also talk deeply about the challenges parents have faced with remote learning and an unpredictable school year in the fall. We talk about how to balance the administrative tasks for teachers too. We talk about how to balance professional AND personal development.

We both want you to show up as the best version of yourself - and that means time away from work to rest and recharge. I think this will be fascinating as a parent, teacher, or just someone working on self-care. Learn more about the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club and how you can join now as a friend of Lisa (even though it's closed to the public!) - organize365.com/angela
