Do you have a unified way of approaching your life, work, etc?


I don’t know what to call it, but I am nicknaming it the..

“Organized Compartmentalized Approach”

I look at everything in broad swathes of grouped categories, and then I break it down to subcategory, and sometimes sub-subcategory.

This is how I organize my life (note: it is using the OLD ANotes app, I now use ToDo by Appigo which I have yet to review), my basic essentials for traveling like when I traveled for 2 months, my emails and letters, and obviously, my closet.

Below you can see tops, long-sleeved button up tops, long sleeved tops, dresses, then pants…


Even my finances, are broken down by category and subcategory using my budgeting tool.

I do this at work too, like naming files and folders, and I can’t go about my work until I have every piece of To Do on my list crossed off, checked and compartmentalized by order of priority and amount of work required.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    It’s a bit hectic with me, although I do try to put everything into place and categories. Then I get back to the chaos (and have husband and daughter to help with it :)), then it’s all back to organizing and chaos again 😀

      I do that organize/chaos cycle as well but not quite as bad as I used to, ever since I have been influenced by my partner
