Sometimes people ask me WHY I am so organized and then things get trickier. The most honest and real answer would be: I just roll that way, this is how I am wired.
I want to streamline my activities so I can find the time and the space for what I like to do. For example I make sure I have the time blocked out and the clean space to be able to scrapbook every day in November for Art Every Day Month. That means having materials for 31 layouts, including the paper pictures already printed. That takes some planning.

Article after article talked about time and money but it is not only time and money what we can manage. It is also energy, space and even peace of mind! We fear the scarcity but then again it is all about CHOICE and only YOU can decide what really matters to you.
