I am organized in MY OWN WAY. That is all I can say. Bills get paid....house gets cleaned...things get fixed. But my methods are just that. Mine and not like a structured plan of action could write down for some one else.

I’ve been strongly influenced by The SLOB sisters Card System.
In a nutshell:
Assign a task for every day & rotate the cards every week/month/qtr.
Every morning pull your cards.
i.e...every Wednesday I gas up my SUV. I could have a 3/4 or 1/4 tank.
I fill up regardless.
i.e..every Thursday I dust surfaces. I don’t vacuum, windex or sweep..I just dust surfaces.
i.e..On Friday I’ll sweep, etc.
Just a little bit every day.
For this focused program, other than the practical application,
it really became a ‘lifesaver’ for me. Back in the early 1990s,
I was in a really dark place & this silly card thing gave me
focus every day. I can’t recommend it enough.
That is a very good program. I still have my box of cards I've used for 4 houses that needs revamping to fit the current house but I haven't used it consistently. It works better for me than the Fly Lady system. I'd like to find a way to merge the two, they both have positive aspects. Just reading this makes me want to get back into my cards that are in the junk drawer in the kitchen waiting for me. LOL
I had the book and used the cards, too, way back when the sons were at home. I should go back to that system.
I do like some of FlyLady’s techniques though but don’t give her your email address — lol.

I am a fanatic about my calendar and to-do list. The best method for me is a planner about 5X8 inches that has both monthly and weekly formats. I need it to fit in my purse. The one I am using now is from Blue Sky. When open, the weekly pages have the calendar on the left side and a to-do list on the right. I want it all in one place and this does it for me. It also has pages for notes in the back and I keep lists there of books to read, etc.
I thought I would be done with to-do lists when I retired, but quickly found that was not the case.

@three cees so funny. That Was my beauty stash two years ago. (Ok not really, but you get the idea). But due to the posts here mine is much, much less two years later. At least your stash is VERY organized. As for house stuff, I may have some multiples but not that many of anything. Yes, maybe two or three of anything. I may need to hire you.
