9 Things the Military Taught me About Organizing (Because You're Fighting Hard in The Trenches of Motherhood and you Need This)

9 Things the Military Taught me About Organizing (Because You're Fighting Hard in The Trenches of Motherhood and you Need This)

It's no secret that soldiers are organized. 

In the military soldiers who aren't organized are referred to as an  'admin nightmare', 'admin vortex' and the less affectionate 'cluster-f**k'. (Sorry, about the bad word, but soldiers swear.)

Being unorganized is seen as a very-bad-no-good thing in the military.

Spending nearly a decade in uniform, I noticed that the military treats organizing like any other skill. Something anyone can learn. Doesn't matter if you weren't born with a label maker in your hands, you can learn to be organized. 

So today I'm spilling the camo-covered beans about getting organized soldier-style that you can use today. You won't even have to shave your head, do push-ups or shine any shoes, I promise.
