TFE Boosting Personal Productivity Workshop/Bob Pepalis-TFEToday is Green Monday, which has nothing to do with recycling and the environment and everything to do with money. The term was coined by eBay in 2009 to mark its busiest sales day in December. Now we all can “benefit” with yet another round of online sales.

Green Monday trails Cyber Monday and Black Friday in online sales, but we’re still talking about more than $1 billion in retail shopping. But until every last retailer sells out of every item in stock – and some that aren’t – expect to see more of these “special” sales days.

Now that you’ve spent most of your hard earned money on family for the holidays, why not turn Green Monday into a time to buy sustainable items?

Planners, Daytimers and smartphones help keep you organized, and so can apps such as EvernoteStaying organized, or even getting organized in the first place, can be tough. You take notes on the backs of business cards, on napkins and in the margins of any printed material that’s handy. Unfortunately, it’s probably more common to lose these notes, or lose track of what you meant when you wrote them down.

The advent of smartphones provided a handy tool in your hand to take notes. But by the time you found the notes app, you’ve either lost your thought or the speaker who spurred on the idea has changed topics.

Laptops and then netbooks seemed to solve the problem of taking notes, but if you didn’t already have the computer turned on and the correct program already running, forget about it. You’ll never jot your thoughts down as you have them.
