not having a set desk day
not having a set desk area until the end of last year.
not having a home for anything for bills, budgets or desk anything

.. putting charge card bills in envelopes (after checking) and marking them with date and previous balance and current balance (what a mess) ... dd younger has notes from school in individual binders - i.e. physics, music etc. (placing them in there when she gets home)... she can see everything and it works. She lets go of things when semester is over .. dh does this with his checking account for two years ... it works for him... he attaches the deposit slips to the statement (I have to think about this) all 2013 and prior cc printed monthly statements gone.
