The weeks are just FLYING BY! I totally need warm weather. It is April 9th and I am almost done with my taxes. I need to review them before I e-file. I love TurboTax and love State Farm even more for giving their clients TurboTax for FREE!
OfficeMax has a great new system by Peter Walsh (best known for TLC’s Clean Sweep) for organizing your work life and decluttering your space.
The new InPlace System by Peter Walsh will be available in OfficeMax stores next week. I was recently sent a great box of samples to try and they are PERFECT for organizing my husband’s new business right out of the gate. The minute I opened the box he was hovering over me and pretty much stole everything from me! That’s ok, I know he will put it to good use and he needs all the help he can get making sure he keeps everything for his company in order.
Below is a link to a pdf that contains some great tips from Peter Walsh to help keep your work life organized:

OfficeMax also sent along some other items like file folders and a rubber band ball. While I had to wrestle everyone in the family for the rubber band ball, I actually needed the file folders and the ones they sent are hip and funky and much more fun than boring yellow ones. This was just the inspiration I needed to catch up on my filing that I haven’t done since December.
