I've been working on being a more organized person and one thing I know works for me is to make lists and check things off. It's so satisfying!

They also do funny specials, like this one about the movie Love Actually. I look forward to it every week.
That's it! I'll include this feature weekly if you guys are interested, so please let me know.
