Take TenTM-Improve your life ten minutes at a time!
“The key to success whether you are trying to lose weight, break a bad habit or save money on your grocery bill is to consistently apply small changes over time.”
p. 27 Save More, Clip Less
One way I incorporate this principle of small changes over time is to choose a weekly project to work on ten minutes a day. Knowing it’s only ten minutes helps me to get started–even if the project seems overwhelming at first. Working on the goal daily helps me to develop discipline (hate the word, love the effects!).
This week I’ll be spending ten minutes a day organizing the photos on my computer.
As you can probably tell, I love taking photos. What I don’t love is searching through months worth of pictures organized by date when I’m trying to find a specific photo. This week I will be organizing them by topic and making back up copies.
Would you like to join me in a ten minute a day project this week?

Laundry! It’s clean, just not put away. Piled here and there, mocking me as I frantically sort through it for that shirt I KNOW is there- only to have to iron it after all. AAAAGGHHH!! But no more- Laundry, you are gonna be under control!
You can do it Melissa! 🙂

I may join you on this one. I have pictures on two different computers and only some of the pictures backed up. It is a total mess!
I know Laura–I let my photos get out of control so easily!
Last week’s getting to bed earlier goal went pretty well. Hoping to keep that going. I think this week I should tackle getting the family ready for the big weekend camp out. 🙂
Oooh-campout sounds fun! I meant to post an update, but forgot. My getting to bed on time went well too (until tonight!) 🙂
oh that is a great project! I have 1000s of photos of my little girl I need to back up onto CDs. I may join you this week! Thanks for the blog, so glad Crystal at Money Saving Mom posted about your blog a few weeks ago.
