I’m the first to admit that I’ve become a “toss & run” type. My office is atrocious with boxes full of paperwork, review products, and “stuff” (“stuff” can’t be explained – it’s just STUFF), under the bathroom vanities creams, colors, and beauty utensils are in deep baskets that look as if they belong on the shelves of a thrift store, and my closet(s) that were once organized by color now look more like a Jackson Pollock painting. All of this is hidden from view from guests (unless they snoop), but I know they’re there.
I used to LIKE disorganization, and would remark that I KNEW WHERE EVERYTHING WAS, but I was not being honest with myself. You could tell. I’m a list maker. List makers are either organized people, or train wrecks like me who want desperately to have order in their lives. I can’t live without my datebook.
Champagne Living, The Review Broads, Hotels.com, CraveLocal, and all of the other sites that I write for would never be updated without my trusty schedule. It’s the ONE area that I’m diligent about. Since I schedule 3 months ahead (I have to with all of the travel that I do), I’ve begun working on my 2014 calendar.
