Summer

Organizing Your Summer

Summer is a big deal! Even though summer officially begins June 21, life is starting to get crazy now.   There are so many events and plans that occur in the summer, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed.  You have holiday plans, weddings, vacations, kids to keep track of, and more. All these things will keep you busy – but what’s the best way to keep track of the summer without adding any extra stress to your plate? At-A-Glance planners and calendars can help keep your summer organized.

AT-A-GLANCE Appointment BookFor an organized summer we recommend a few products to keep you on track everywhere you go.   First, an appointment book is necessary. Depending on your needs, your appointment book could be daily, weekly, or monthly and could have time increments in your days if you prefer. In a planner, it’s easy to flip through the pages to see exactly what you’re doing and when.  Appointment books are also great for taking notes that apply to your schedule so you have all the information you need in one place. An appointment book is all about what works best for you to help you manage your schedule.

AT-A-GLANCE Wall CalendarNext, it’s great to have a calendar at home to compliment your personal and mobile calendars.  An erasable wall calendar is a great way to keep your family up to date with all the ever changing family plans. Because the calendar is erasable, it is easy to make changes without making a big mess.

Lastly, if your kids are busy bees you might need a calendar dedicated to their schedules only.  You can write down the times of soccer games, work schedules, project due dates, and more. Kids, no matter what age, always have a lot of activities going on, and a calendar dedicated solely to their schedule can help keep everyone organized.

 

Summer is almost here and usually that means plans get hectic, but this year your schedule doesn’t need to be crazy.  It’s much easier to stay organized when you have the right tools to plan your summer. Use At-A-Glance to help organize and plan your summer. Now you can enjoy your down time and know where you need to be.  Be the boss of your schedule rather than letting your schedule be the boss of you.

Capitalizing on the strengths of paper and digital planning tools, a hybrid system gives you the best of both worlds while avoiding the pitfalls associated with either of the mediums

10 Tips to Foster and Drive Productivity in the Office

Editor’s Note: This article was originally posted to the Innovatively Organized Blog as a guest post. Enjoy!

When we talk about productivity, it usually takes the slant of personal habits and processes that can enhance an individual’s ability to get the most out of every day. But what about multiple people or a team of colleagues working together in an office environment? Isn’t their productivity as a whole just as important?

As the saying goes, there is no “I” in “TEAM.” While it is helpful and actually quite necessary for individuals to be productive on their own personal levels, it’s imperative that this productivity spills over and is shared by the entire team.

Here are 10 tips you can use in your office to help maximize productivity on both a personal and group level Continue reading
