    In my bid to become more organised, I have many things to help me. I've already got dentist, orthodontist and paediatrician appointments made plus swimming lessons booked in. Now I just need a couple of million dollars to pay for everything and I'll be set.

    I've just come searching for this thread so I can read it again for more ideas/inspiration and thought I'd update you all on how I'm going.

    I have been really good with keeping track of everything in my diary. I put everything in it, no matter how trivial. I also put all appointments and events in my phone calendar as well so that I've got a back up either way. I also have a magnetic white board weekly planner which I update every Sunday and during the week if need be. Then, I've also got a yearly planner calendar from work that I use, although I have been a bit slack with that. Will update it tonight actually.

    I have a ring binder divided into sections such as bills, school, receipts, lay by, budget and one each for the kids and I. I have heaps of plastic sleeves in there too. I have also got an account ledger type book and have been writing down everything I spend, even a drink from the shop goes in there. I keep all receipts also, not sure why lol but I do!

    Mum and I have been doing a weekly menu plan each Sunday and doing our shopping list at the same time. I also write myself out a "to do" list on days I'm home and mark it off as I go.

    The kids are all ready for school. I just need to find DD's school glasses, wish me luck! All else that needs to be done is lunches on Tuesday night. Here's some pics of what mum and I have done for back to school. The boxes with the days of the week hold their uniforms plus will also hold anything specific they need to take that day such as library bags, homework etc. The desk is for homework and assignments. The cork board has school/activity relevant dates and a daily afternoon routine for Monday-Thursday. The boxes with their names are for their school shoes plus two spares which I'm sure will be utilised soon,probably for swimming lessons etc. That's DD's dancing bag on top.

    I would love any further suggestions on anything but in particular decluttering... That's my next project!

    Well done! As for the decluttering-
    have you heard of the Kon Mari method? I've just discovered it in the last few weeks and I find it really helpful- even though I'm only taking some of her guidelines in. She has a book out but there's heaps of blogs/tutorials online that review her work and takes you through each step at a time.

    @My Beloved Ones I love Kon Mari! We've been slowly implementing her method there.
