Another New Year’s Day is here, and with it come the best of intentions in the form of “New Year’s Resolution.” Along with losing weight and quitting smoking, the resolve to “get organized” is among the most popular. In fact, January is “Get Organized Month” as declared by the National Association of Professional Organizers. Governor Jennifer Granholm of Michigan issued this proclamation, making January “Get Organized Month” in Michigan.

This blog was created over in August 2004. Over five years and five hundred posts later, it still brings messages designed to make life easier through better organization and time management.

Every day this month, we will be bringing back some of the best posts from the last five years, sort of our way of celebrating “Get Organized Month.”

There are other reasons to celebrate. Later this month, Organization Made Easy: Tools for Today’s Teachers will be out. During January, the Eye on Education Blog and Tales from a Teacher’s Heart will be spotlighting the ideas that have made a difference for many people.
