How To Run An Organized Household

I was asked a number of times on how I manage to run an organized household with tons of activities and side duties I'm having.  I can't explain everything in detail and would normally respond in the simplest way I can, so I decided to write this post to share how I manage to be a busy Mom and yet organized.  
The basic thing that you have to master in running an organized household is time management. I am a great fan of organization and wants everything in it's proper place. Cleaning and organizing is every Mom's job but what about if you still have tons of things to do aside from these two?  I used to have a house helper before and probably, this was a great help to me during the years that I was still active in the corporate world.  Now that we are on our own, doing all the household chores while managing the family's finances and having part time jobs is indeed a challenge for me.  Good thing that my son and daughter are both old enough to help around the house…

Keeping Your Memories Alive

I am a person who gives strong emphasis on things with sentimental values.  I always like to keep a record of those happy memories I had.  We had our wedding ceremony recorded as well as the Christening of my two kids and their first birthday celebrations.  We wanted that way so we could always go back and reminisce those beautiful memories that our family had.  However, due to the advancement in technology, we were not able to preserve some of these recorded videos.  I really felt upset losing these special memories, how I wish I had a cd duplicator then so I could make several copies of these videos for back up.  Now, I lose the videos but not the memories coz until now, I could still remember clearly what had transpired during those special milestones in our lives.  I've learned my lesson though and I think it wouldn't hurt if I would learn to back up my videos to make sure that I wouldn't lose them.  I think, there is also a need to transfer these to a new format every…

How You Could Possibly Go For An Early Retirement

Filipinos normally retire at the age of 60 to 65 years old but I am certain that given a choice, most of us would like to retire earlier than that.  Why not? Retiring early will be a dream come true for most people.  Who would not want to spend long years of their life doing things they love to do?  Perhaps going for a much needed vacation once in a while, eating out with your family, travel locally and abroad, going to movies, picking up a sport or simply following your passion while having control of your time.  This is definitely ideal, but the problem is how could we possibly achieve this?
Gaining control of your financial situation is the secret for getting an early retirement.  The first step that you have to do is to have a clear vision of what would you expect to happen during your retirement years.  We all know that retirement fund varies from person to person, that's why it is very important to figure out what do you foresee about yourself in the future. Having establishe…

What You Need to Know About Hepatitis C

Do you suspect you have hepatitis C? It can be deadly if the symptoms go undetected or untreated. The good news is that much research has been done into the subject, and with proper medical care, your prognosis can improve significantly. Here are just a few things you need to know about hepatitis C.

Anyone Can Get It
It can be passed through sexual intercourse; it can be transmitted from mother to child; you might even have been exposed by sharing a razor that had someone else's blood on it. Hepatitis C is spread so easily that it isn't anyone's fault for getting it. It's just bad luck.

It Isn't Airborne
Despite the ease at which it's transmitted, it's important to understand that hepatitis C is not airborne and cannot be passed through things like hugging, touching or even coughing on one another. You don't have to be paranoid about catching or spreading hepatitis C. Just exercise caution when you have sexual intercourse or use needles.
