I mean, there’s already threads about mishloach manos! And my married sister has already started pesach cleaning! How do you do it?? (I am a VERYVERYVERY last minute/second person, in case it wasn’t obvious) I need some tips! (It has nothing to do with being on the CR. I was just as last minute before I joined, or when I took breaks.) Suggestions?January 30, 2015 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1056963

They are not of this earth, they are from Planet Venus, which they destroyed with their dangerously high level of organization. We must make them disorganized before it’s too late!January 30, 2015 10:21 pm at 10:21 pm #1056965

I have the exact same issue! I am always one to normally do things last minute- literally. I’ve found keeping a daily planner helpful.February 1, 2015 6:20 am at 6:20 am #1056970
FFBBT (BTW – Cute name;) ) – Yeah, I tried that. It helped, but the problem is that I got lazy and couldn’t be bothered writing things down…..so that helped…..Also, I put things in my phone calendar….but I don’t turn on my phone every day; sometimes its off for weeks at a time…..so yeah…. :S :S i guess there is no hope :pFebruary 1, 2015 8:16 am at 8:16 am #1056972Sam KleinParticipant
Being organized is very rewarding.
I have always been very organized from every expense & paycheck written down to the penny (so I know my balance & net worth by the month & year etc…) to PURIM & other yomim tovim.
Now for the purim organizing tips
1)type a list of all people to give mishloach manos
2)as you give it make different marks or symbols near their name for people who gave or didn’t give back plus other symbols for people who weren’t home or people you wanted to give but couldn’t (for various reasons)
Next year when you pull out your list you can see how many gave you back so you will know how many you need to buy for cause BOTTOM LINE: if you give 50 people approx. 35 will give you back so instead of buying 50 & having all the leftovers you only make 18 & take the ones you get back & pass those on… by the time you have given all 50 people it will be just perfect & you wont have so much leftovers & you will have saved tons of extra money spent.
1)make routes in order of streets & locations of the town you live in & go one location at a time, versus going child by child etc.. & getting all dizzy crossing town 10 times throughout the day of purim.
2)make you own mishloach manos & make a list of kinds of food & the prices you paid at the cheapest store & save it from year to year to remember the best & cheapest places to get from & what you made & gave each year in your mishloach manos
MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL
save your information from year to year & just look each year who you need to add or take off the list.
Hatzlacha rabba & a happy purim ahead to everyoneFebruary 1, 2015 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #1056973showjoeParticipant

Sam Klien – WOOOOOWWWW!!!! I WISH I was that organized!!!! (Btw – I am a teenager, but I could still use a lot of that!) Thanx for the advice! 🙂
Showjoe – very well actually 🙂 I have a home phone if I wanna talk, and I can never be bothered texting. Whenever I DO remember to turn on my (cell) phone, it goes CRAZY! It’s pretty funny actually 😀February 2, 2015 4:55 pm at 4:55 pm #1056975Sam KleinParticipant
