Give Your Parents Peace of Mind
Monday, March 22, 2010 | Derek Allen
As an incoming university freshman, I got my first taste of the real
word, and it was bittersweet. My mind was focused on finding classes,
highlighting textbooks, and making new friends. Everyone tells you
college is hard work and you are going to have to study your butt off.
However, no one tells you about all the other stuff, the real world
stuff. I didn’t know how to manage my finances, time, and health.

Organize Personal Health Information
Tuesday, November 17, 2009 | Sarah Dietze
As a professional organizer, I am frequently called on to help folks
sort through their papers and develop systems to organize their files. I
find that people have files with extensive information on the care and
maintenance of their homes and cars, and no file on the care and
maintenance of themselves. As part of their organizing project, I
encourage them to develop a file for their medical histories and
pertinent medical information.
