Reminder tomorrow we are starting a “build your Control Journal” series.
If you are cleaning around your house and want to join us on the building a control journal series on tomorrow, be sure to set aside these items:
White or colored paper (you choose)
“ABC” dividers for addresses and phone numbers
Monthly dividers for seasonal reminders, such as birthdays and when to change the furnace filter
Sheet protectors (not the matte finish unless you already have some; they are hard to erase)
Dry erase markers in your favorite color
Some kind of calendar for your schedule
A small note pad for making lists or post-it notes
A zippered pouch (for stamps, paper clips, pens, and other small items)
Now I don't have all of these. I have a home journal and a everyday, out of the house journal. I found that combining them was too much so separating them has helped me a bit.
I have a binder, dividers, a steno pad that is 8.5 by 11, and sheet protectors. That is it. I guess I also have pens and alcohol swabs but I don't really count those as I need them for my other journal too.
Remember you don’t have to be perfect. Just do the best you can everyday and it will all be good in the end!
