Organizing your life

I am sure in the new year, many of you have goals of becoming more organized in order to spend more time with your family and less time in the clutter. I am working towards becoming a more organized person and I wanted to tell you of a few tips, websites and places to go in order to organize your life.
First, there is a website called FutureMe.org where you can write yourself a letter and send it into the future. I have not sent myself a letter, but am going to as I find it is a great way to set goals and see if I have achieved them .You  need to have an email address, so the letter can be sent to it. You choose what day/year you want the letter sent to you. It’s  free, which is even better!!

What are you waiting for? Write yourself a letter here!


Second: Finances

 Have you ever heard of mint.com?
It allows you to create a budget,  categorizes your spending and imports your bank or credit union information. Drew and I have used this and it works very well. It is highly secure, so you do not have to worry about security.

Is your bank starting to charge fee's? Have you been getting information in the mail about fee changes and such? I have and I wanted to let you know of a great site that will help you find banks and credit unions in your area, so you do not have to worry about paying fees. Bankrate.com is a free site for comparison shopping for banks and loans.. Check it out!

Coupon Saving Tracker Spreadsheet
Head here to download the spread sheet for free. Just enter the information from your receipts and it will keep track of how much you are spending and how much you are saving.

Schedules, Calendars
Calendars, Meal planners, Babies Schedule, To Dos and much More
Go to Mommytracked.com where you can download super fun and creative schedule organization.

I hope these sites hook you up with some new organization ideas and inspiration for this year! I especially love the Coupon Savings Tracker Spreadsheet! You must download that!
Happy organization!
