Here’s an update on Kathy, the Simplicity Makeover winner. Kathy has had a lot of changes lately and she is really doing wonderfully navigating her new life. She really wants more time to declutter, have fun and search for a new job. To start finding more time, she is playing with and tweaking her routines. This also allows her to make a fresh start since her current life is much different then her life before.
Some routine tweaks:
- Getting her daughter involved in a 2 min pick up of the house in the evening
- For paperwork, when I was working out of the house I had one of those plastic expanded files where I put paper to sort and had a slot for bills, to do, to file, etc. So I could sort in a few minutes at the office. Or while waiting for one of the kids. I had notecards to write a quick note. It really helped me keep up with my paperwork. If a form had to be filled out, I could do it right there. And you could even do paperwork from your bed that way.

And just a reminder for all of you – you are doing better than you think!
