What does time management have to do with getting organized?

Getting organized saves time

It’s no secret that there are multiple reasons we choose to get organized. More often than not, we connect being organized with being successful. The truth is, however, that one of the greatest benefits of being organized is time management.


Benjamin Franklin said,

“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.”


If you’re constantly searching for things, you are wasting time and energy. When you are organized, you’re more efficient and productive, which in turn helps you to:

-Save time

-Be more focused

-Be less stressed

-Appear more professional

-Able to meet deadlines

-Advance your business or career

-Have more free time

Of course, good time management is important both professionally and personally. It helps us accomplish what we need to do by the end of the day in order to begin the next day fresh and new. Above all, it enables us to have more free time to spend with our friends and family.

    As of this summer we have two refrigerator/freezers; a deep freezer; and an upright freezer.

    Every Thursday we go to the local farmer’s market for a variety of pea’s/beans (to put in the freezers);

    On Wednesdays we do our regular grocery store shopping and buy a lot of seafood & meats,for my husband,(to be put in the freezers);

    plus, every summer we boil several bushels of peanuts (to be put in the freezers).

    All this has become a nightmare for me! I never know where anything is, just a general idea. The deep freezer is THE WORST. To access whatever is on the bottom, everything in it has to be removed. {“honey, do i have anymore cooked shrimp in the freezer?”} after i’ve hauled tons of frozen food out and peer into the frozen abyss i call out “no dear, no cooked shrimp in there. found some uncooked shrimp and two boston butts & a whole chicken i didn’t know we have though!” … then the tedious process of replacing all this heavy food back into the freezer. There’s been a couple of times some smaller items were overlooked and the next day i find them sitting out thawed and ruined. I shake my head in despair over the wasted money i’m throwing into the trashcan, muttering to myself “there has got to be a better way!”

    So in addition to my high hopes of getting my papers under control with the Paper Tiger system, i have just as high hopes i can use the system to get these freezers under control (somewhat anyway …)
    Thanks for ‘listening’ and wish me luck :-)
