I completely understand. I used to have dozens of items stuck to my fridge, but once I read Getting Things Done by David Allen, all that changed.
The secret to a clear refrigerator is the tickler file. I'm so in love with it that I wrote up a guest post for David Allen's blog, GTD Times, and it posted this week.
A couple of months ago, we (at The Power of Moms) released version one of Mind Organization for Moms--an online program based on David Allen's book. It's designed to help moms get their papers, tasks, goals, and ideas organized into a system that will help them finally enjoy their families.
We've got hundreds of mothers using the system, and version two will be coming out in the next month or so (most likely once the children are back in school). Exciting!
I can't say enough about the GTD system. It's seriously incredible, and it has enabled me to juggle more than ever before while still feeling somewhat on top of things. The best part is that I am enjoying my husband and children more now than ever before. You can't put a price tag on that.
If you're interested in trying out Mind Organization for Moms, we're still offering it free of charge to anyone who shares the site with 30 friends.
Your brain AND your refrigerator will thank you....
