How to stay organized and kick butt in both work and life | part two

Because so many of you enjoyed my first post on how to organize your life and really kick butt, I’m back with more. Remember, these are just some of the little things I’ve discovered over time that have really helped me, and my family, get through the day, actually enjoy each other, and feel like we’re not on a sinking ship.
