Invisible Organizing

Not only that I'm by no means an organizing guru but I allways struggle to maintain control over different areas of my life. Organizing an apartment or a house might be challenging for some of us but it stays in the domain of manageable. I think. I believe. Whatever.
What causes me trouble is a different kind of organizing that I'm going to call invisible. Why invisible? Well, first of all, you can barely put it in beautiful, color coordinated and labeled boxes. Or so I think. Second, you can't give it to charity when there is too much of it.!
I have to add to this that I hate numbers,  I'm simply not good at it. That would leave us with everything number related : money, debts, budgets, invoices, mortgage, savings, loans, to name just a few. You should know by now that I'm not in my twenties but boy am I happy to live in the time of the Internet! All the resources and all the smart people who share their knowledge with us!

If you are anything like me, you are grateful for anything  helping you organize (read : not lose control) those areas of your life. Not so long time ago, I stumbled upon a website that offered me great comfort in handling those kind of things and I wanted to share my find with you. It's called Vertex42 and it pretends offering Excel templates, calendars, calculators and spreadsheats. But don't let this explanation fool you for one moment! They offer some serious life and time saving material, I swear. I can't even begin to describe what kind of wonderful tools you can discover on this site! From menu planner to debt reduction calculator and more. I had my own 'dawning' moment when I found the Home Mortgage Calculator and saw with my own eyes what a huge difference a little extra payment can make. Very motivating! And absolutely free! Go see for yourself and explore the endless possibilities - I'm sure you'll find a tool that can help you organize that invisible but so important part of your life. Oh, and just so you know, I'm not in any kind of relationship with this site, they don't even know that I exist.

I love your term "invisible" organizing. So many times in my life I do things that seem "invisible" but take up a lot of my time and are necessary to do. Thanks for the link as well!
