Organizing Accounting


A transient sun glass salesman once asked me out for drinks. As a “Yes” Lady, I obliged him for a brew ha-ha!

Most dates are meetings. Interviews are dates. Etc… the intention to get to know one another is the same. In order to decipher whether or not greater intimacy is worthwhile…

We had a gas! This salesman was a blast. I even considered flying South with him for the Winter. If only flight didn’t mean committing to living out of an already jam packed mini van. : )

Tips & tricks were shared while we drank down a coupla beers.

One that he shared is mighty fantastic!

Fortuitously for me not too long after this I found myself deep in the murky waters of Accounting.

As a small business Secretary I was excited at the opportunity to put my new knowledge to good use…


Organization is a friendly game when played with posterity.

At Pedal to the People we staple, tape or otherwise adhese all of our important receipts & repair tags to notebook pages.

Like this:


My transient friend does not have a lot of space. Neither do we!

This way allows us to save room for other clutter. And, keeps away additional pile up.

We go like this: enter into QuickBooks the specifics. And, staple the receipt.

Labels are nice too.

Striding Towards Simplicity

Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication

Says Leonardo DaVinci.


This is a post about transition…

Choice. A consumer driven concept. Or, is it?

Choice has lead me to creativity, clutter & in-decision. To name a few.

My newest choice is to live a simple life. Getting there has been complicated.

Pairing down & verifying importance of items owned.

Utility counts!

I have moved from being a typical American consumer to a person who will hold out until the right item manifests from thin air. Sometimes that is exactly what happens.

Knowing your needs is very important also.

If you do not know already: I work with others to ignite change in their own lives.

It can be a gruelling process. Or, not. That is up to you!

Call me. Let’s make a change you can count on.

Striding Towards Simplicity

Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication


So says Leonardo DaVinci.

This is a post about transition…

Choice. A consumer driven concept. Or, is it?

My newest choice is to life a simple life. Getting there has been complicated.

What is simple?

Simple according to Webster, means presenting no difficulty.

What in your life causes difficulty?

For me, it’s been having too much stuff.
Choice leads to clutter. Over stimulation.

No need to beat yourself up over having stuff. We all do!

What we keep lying around causes enough havoc in our lives…

Simplicity-  having the ability to reach multiple outcomes with a single tool.

Like an adjustable wrench.
Or, my favorite brown merino wool top. Sexy, sophisticated & logical for biking around a big city.

Simplicity for me is being able to work leas and accomplish more!

In deciding to keep or can an item ask yourself: Does this suit me? Will this item work with me to bring my best self forward?
