Organizing Fall Fling Day 24: Your Schedule

Organizing Fall Fling Day 24: Your Schedule

No, don’t throw out your calendar. What I am suggesting is to look at your schedule and figure out 1 or 2 things that you can fling - maybe it’s a committee meeting that you really don’t need to attend or an open house that you’ve been invited to. Take them off your calendar now!

You need to guard your time as the precious resource that it is.

 

Obama's Team to Clarify Health Care Penalties

David Jackson, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is seeking to clarify penalty rules for people who delay signing up for coverage under the new health care law.

Simply put: People who wait until the end of the initial enrollment period - March 31 - will not be penalized.

The Obama administration is preparing legal guidance to address a confusion of dates in the law, which says people must sign up by the 15th of one month to receive coverage on the first of the next month.

That means someone who signed up after Feb. 15 would not be covered until April 1 - and the law also says that people who go three months without coverage are subject to penalties, $95 or 1% of income, whichever is higher.

That is not the case, the White House says.

Organizing Fall Fling Day 23: Fridge

Organizing Fall Fling Day 23: Fridge

It’s time to tackle the refrigerator. Start by disposing of those questionable leftovers. Then move on to checking expiration dates. It’s amazing how quickly they sneak up on you. Shelf by shelf remove everything and give the shelves a quick wipe with a warm, soapy rag. When you put the food back in, it’s helpful to group like things together. I even like using acrylic bins and lazy susans to group items together.

Your fridge doesn’t have to be a scary place so start flinging those science experiments!

 

Organizing Fall Fling Day 22: Wrapping Paper

Organizing Fall Fling Day 22: Wrapping Paper

Gather all of your wrapping supplies into one place and take stock of what you have. Pull out anything that is dated, faded or wrinkled and recycle it. Do you have lots of wrapping paper but only use gift bags? Consider donating those rolls. Cull down to a reasonable about of supplies that will fit in an under the bed box, a drawer or a shelf.
