Corporate and Special Event Planning

Getting Organized

Getting Organized
Things here at In the Moment just keep getting better. We have booked two new events and we are so excited!
BUT…I am feeling disorganized and frustrated.  My office is a mess, my “party room” is a mess…grrr!!!  Time to get organized.  I am trying to think of a way to organize our events that won’t cost me any money. I am visual and need to have everything written out in front of me so I can see everything we have happening.  I think I know what I need but it is going to cost me a small fortune to do so I need to come up with something less expensive. I wonder if I can get Trevor to put a bunch of nails in the wall for me…eee…don’t like the sound of that. Our house is still new looking and I hate putting holes in the wall but I think then I can buy a bunch of those large flip chart pads and I can have one for each event then we can write and scratch stuff out as required.
I also need to organize my party room and set up a spot for each event so that I can start to put aside items as I find them. Little things that I know will be helpful at an event.  I need a work space with big tables, boxes and places to label everything by event. Unfortunately I also have our family freezer in the room and our beer fridge and our water tank.  The room is unfinished so I feel so icky when I’m in there. I need more shelves, I need to have all my stock out where I can see it so I can plan events around what we have and not buy duplicates of stuff I forgot we have.
It is helping that our family is getting our life organized again. We have been in shambles all summer. The house has been a mess which is unusual for us.  We are all running in different directions, which isn’t unusual but it is feeling unusual for some reason. Anyway, we created a family chore calendar the other day and hopefully that will help.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to organize events up on my wall so I can see everything that needs to get done? How about a room full of stuff that needs to be layed out by event? Any thoughts?
