It’s almost expected that if you have ADHD, you’ll have a hard time waking up. Here’s a tip: place one alarm clock near your bed, one across the room (so you have to get up to turn it off) and one even further away, maybe in your bathroom or closet.
Or try one of these super loud or otherwise helpful alarm clocks to get you OUT of bed!

Finally! A One Stop Bill Paying Station!
I love this. As soon as the bills arrive in the mail, mark each envelope with the due date, then toss them in a folder putting them in order of when they’re due. Use another folder for the statement/receipt, to be filed weekly (or daily if you are more organized than me).
The horizontal trays can be used for stamps and envelopes.
Oh, I can think of a lot of ways this organizer can be used.
I’ve chosen more organizing products that will help you jump into spring more organized, more calm.
Where? Right HERE!

Hour Magazine (Detroit) just published this article, ADHD in Women Often Misdiagnosed, written by Pam Houghton. Both Sari Solden and I were interviewed for the piece, which I think was very well written and explains the struggles women with ADHD face. Read it HERE.

I’m always searching for products that will help you with your ADHD. Below are some ideas that I either use myself or that have caught my eye. Check out the blue Boogie Board, for example- that sits on my counter where I keep notes to my family, reminders on what I need to buy at the grocery store, etc.
We’re using Tile Mate here at the Matlen residence. So far, we’ve found iPhones, chargers and more. See what catches your eye, below.

About a week ago, we lost our power. With temperatures going down into the teens, it wasn’t a fun situation to be in. From experience of living in Michigan almost all my life, I knew this one could be a tortuous situation lasting days. And it did. Once power came back on, we were faced with a fridge and freezer filled with food that had to be tossed. I’m not a fan of food poisoning and didn’t want to take any chances- it all had to go.
Imagine my surprise (not) when I found packages in the freezer labeled 2015- and some even older than that. Time to roll up my sleeves. But as I thought more about this, I realized that by being a freezer hoarder, I had used up precious space for items I’d probably never re-heat or cook. I mean- “Cowboy Lasagna?” Complete with crystals in the plastic baggie!
So…I started my research and found some great ideas online. Some are not ADD friendly, so don’t even attempt the tips that you know won’t work for you. But here are some good ones: Organize Your Freezer.
For starters, try dry erase crayons to label your containers. You can find them here.
Don’t wait until you can’t fit more food into your freezer or if you have a power outage. Clear out the unneeded stuff today! Need help getting motivated? Join me and the queens at the Queens of Distraction! Spring special savings end soon! Join me today at www.QueensOfDistraction.com.
