I spent the last few days cleaning out my home office/office location and my kitchen pantry.
All totally related items for me.
I found something super simple and useful to help me stay organized.
I wear a bluetooth headset and keep my iPhone connected. As I'm clearing out a drawer, or going through marketing materials to throw out or ADD TO - I use Siri to keep a running list of what needs to be done.
Nothing complicated, and I'm sure there are apps and settings that I could use to make it all shiny and slick, but this is what I did...(as well as negotiating a contract while I had my hands full of old magazines)....OKAY THIS IS NOT MY KITCHEN!
As I found things that needed to be replaced, I would click on the talk button on the headset and call up Siri..."Set reminder" and he (yep I have a he talking to me, it's just nice for me)...says "what kind of reminder do you want me to create"...and I would reply "buy Avery 3160 labels", etc.
When I am done with my purging, I now have a perfect list of what needs to be implemented to make my office/kitchen a clean running machine.
You can set Siri to a variety of different defaults, so whatever works for you.
Oh, and I noted that I need tarragon in the worst way. I also have way too much cumin.
