organizing digital pics; part II

If organizing photos was tossed around like a phrase, it would be titled ‘complicated as fuc%$*&.’ I am not kidding. Remember how I had that appointment at The Genius Bar. Yea, that amounted to nada. I mean, I felt like I was plopped right inside an episode of “True Detective” (season 2). He was definitely speaking […]

containers that care

We all know that one of the last steps in the organizing process is to containerize, riiiiight? And while the Bneato Bar team will always try to repurpose what a client already has, sometimes our clients prefer something new (nothing wrong with that)! We also encounter projects where there was no container to begin with […]

let’s put a stop to unplanned shopping trips

This past Saturday was like any other Saturday; sorta planned and sorta not. Errands, maybe lunch out, a Genius Bar appointment—you know, the usual. Except this particular Saturday eve was extra special and out of the ordinary (for me at least). I mean, it’s not every day that I have dinner plans with a bonafide […]

organizing digital pics; part I

Organizing your digital photos is having a moment. I have gotten numerous inquiries over the past six months to help clients tame the photo beast (and have had to turn them away). I, myself, am a candidate for a good old fashioned photo organizing session as I have yet to figure out how to get photos […]

mo’ pens mo’ problems

You guys, I literally gathered up every pen, pencil, marker, magic marker (there is a difference), highlighter and colored pencil in my home. I looked in the car, the garage (I know) the desk drawer, the office closet, the purse and the kitchen. Whew, that was a mouthful. If you’re over the age of 35, […]

email and paperless workshops for sale

You guys. You guys. Tomorrow I will have done seven workshops in the last few months. That might be a record for this gal right here. I was lucky enough to get called upon by the Creative Live folks up in San Francisco and taped two workshops (email decluttering and going kinda paperless). The cool thing about these […]

tick, tick, tick

Time Batching (AKA: putting all your minutes in a box and pretending it’s a present to yourself. Mainly because it feels like one.) Howdy folks. This blog post might have a sprinkling of southern flair as I’ve been visiting the south for most of May. Around these parts, time moves slowly (or at least it seems […]

A new life away from the TV

I’m embarrassed. My name is Beth Penn and I watch way too much TV. I also check my Instagram feed way too much. Duuuuuuuuuuuude. I’m done. No more Real Housewives (apologies, Andy Cohen, but it has to be this way). I wonder how I’m going to break the news to my hubster about the upcoming season […]

how to: make a rule, um, i mean filter in gmail

I love mail. This is no secret. BUT junk mail can seriously su#$ it. I’m serious. It clogs my inbox to the point of overwhelm and frustration. Most of it from someone in Zimbabwe or Russia selling me anything related to that three letter word… (sex). Yes, I said it. This blog is no longer […]

let’s make time management cool

Time management. Pretty boring term, huh? It’s right up there with net neutrality and that is being kind (to net neutrality). Besides sounding overly corporate, time management sounds boring because most folks have negative associations with managing their time. A lot of us feel like we can’t get it all done, so we must be poor time managers. #nottrue […]
