How to look like a star mom at t-ball sign ups

This past weekend we signed my son up for t-ball. I’m excited. This is when parenting gets really really fun. (And we get to scream and cheer and jump up and down without any shame).

In order to get him signed up I needed his birth certificate. I went to where it should have been. Yes, should. It wasn’t there.

I searched high and low and it didn’t turn up. I have one more file drawer that I’m going to clean out (come on, don’t we all have one of those drawers?), I think it may be in there. Hoping so.

Thankfully, the Little League had a copy of his birth certificate from last year and we got him all signed up. (and I get to scream & cheer without shame. Yes!)

It was during this time that I wished I had A) made a copy or B) just had a better filing system.

I thought it and BAM! Carley Knobloch of Digitwirl delivered.

Check out her video below to learn about a great way to file important things. So one day we can all be star moms at Little League sign ups.

I’ll be sharing these videos with you every week, I hope you like them as much as I do! Enjoy!

Digital storage that keeps track of all the information life throws at you

Look around your house. Are you seeing stacks of papers that you keep meaning to go through? Boxes and files bulging with stuff you put there for safe-keeping, but couldn’t find what you need if your life depended on it. Don’t worry, we won’t judge, it’s the exact overload we were facing that made us think there has to be a better way.  Wouldn’t be amazing if you could store information you needed to remember in one place and more importantly, find it instantly, anytime, from anywhere. Good news! It exists, and it is a total game-changer.  Evernote (www.evernote.com) is a website, a free app, and an extension that builds functionality into tons of programs you already use. If you can email it, scan it, type it, snap it, record it, or find it on the internet you can keep track of it all with Evernote.  You won’t believe how simple it is to use, watch the video then forget about forgetting important information ever again.

    I consider myself to be a techie and have used Evernote for a few months now, but it really didn’t dawn on me to scan my important docs into it! I’ve mainly been using it for shopping checklists, to store links I want to remember, etc. But kids artwork and voice memos?!?! Genius! Thanks for the tip! I’m going to tackle scanning everything in my file cabinet today!

  3. Nice idea! I’m always fearful that I won’t be able to find stuff like that when I need to… when we had our passports done in the fall, I couldn’t find my oldest’s birth certificate… I ordered another one (thought I did, anyhow), and would you believe, somehow managed to mess up and order one for my youngest instead? Back to the drawing board… again ordered one for my oldest, did it right that time, and got it! whew!

    • @Sheralyn at Paradise-Found-in-Maui.com,

      I’m so glad I’m not alone in those types of situations Sheralyn! (we’re in this together! :) power in numbers. haha!)

      Last year I got invited to a blogging trip but needed a passport. Mine was expired (one should NEVER be w/out a passport…new rule! ;) ) I didn’t have my own birth certificate. My Dad had to dig in their files for me. LOL

      I paid extra to get my passport expedited and then the dang trip got canceled. Such is life.

      But now I’m ready to fly to Paris at a moment notice ;) As are you, it seems…wink wink…Paris here we come. ha!
