Ol' Myrt here has been busy as a bee over the holidays, revising DearMYRTLE's Organization Checklists -- which haven't been updated in two years. I don't know about you, but this past year wasn't the best for getting much of anything done, let alone talking with others about being organized!

But 2011 will be different!
Who cares if the yard becomes overgrown, the laundry must be sent out, and we spend a little more time eating simple meals like soup and crackers? WE ARE GOING TO GET ORGANIZED!!!
Here is the first of 12 monthly installments:
2011 DearMYRTLE's January Organization Checklist
Its a .PDF file, and all the links are clickable if you read the document while online. Significant changes to the January Checklist include:
- Setting up your Dropbox account so your data is backed up automatically when Dropbox synchronizes folders
- Creating folders on your hard drive to place scanned images of documents.
- Participating in the first of monthly "Scanfests" hosted by Miriam Robbins Midkiff. (That will make 3 hours of active scanning of photos and related documents!)
Happy family tree climbing!
