Get Organized

Avoid feeling overwhelmed with guidance for breaking down time consuming tasks into daily practices, tips and tricks to make technology work for you and expert resources to walk you through facing tasks that many of us put off.

Streamline your life by decluttering your home, optimizing technology to save you time instead of suck your time and finally scratch lingering personal tasks off your to do list; such as talk to your elders about future planning, creating a will, or beginning a large goal.

Content will be added on an ongoing basis. Stay tuned for additional events, workshops, and recordings.

Microsoft Teams group. Join our group on Microsoft Teams in our own dedicated space to share resources, reflections, connect, and more. Joining our ‘team’ on Microsoft Teams is optional and will be a space to discuss what we learn throughout the 90 days in a more ‘social-media-esque’ format. Note: This space is only open to those in our group who are UW-affiliated (student, employee).
