So this weekend (if you count Friday) basically took a bit out of me and I didn’t get started on stuff the way I wanted. That and making the mistake of dealing with both my e-mail backlog and my YouTube backlog at the same time (needing a nap after getting a late start hurt me too) meant I only got to clean out e-mails from June back to half-way through March. This was a goof on my part. Using the YouTube videos to give my eyes a break isn’t a bad idea, but trying to listen to videos I didn’t need to watch (and of course watching the ones I did) while going over newsletters to see if there was anything to read, linking to the website to read it when the video was done, and then going over all those tabs was not as helpful as I’d hoped. Kind of annoyed really as I’ve been doing so well I was convinced I’d get through 2019 this week, at least for the “work” e-mail backlog.

Meanwhile, I came across an article about the five common mistakes of clutter organizing…or the lack thereof…and admittedly I’m probably guilty of a few of these myself. Though as longtime readers know I prefer to make my own organizers out of cardboard rather than spend money on fixed dividers.
