About Melanie


I am so glad you are here to spend a few minutes with me! Maybe you want to know what qualifies me to give organization advice? Well, I have unique skill of being able to accomplish many tasks by organizing them and still have fun. This was developed over time while I was getting my bachelors degree. If any of you have gone to nursing school you know it is near impossible to get all the reading finished!

As a wife, a mom, a reservist, and a nurse I am a perfectionist. Unfortunately there are only 24 hours in a day. I had to get organized really quick. I needed a “system”. I remember some things my dad had mentioned back when I was in high school and then just tweaked them a little.

How Just 4 You Started?

How this got started, I was mobilized and working on my master’s degree. I was in the middle of working on my thesis and my computer crashed and I lost all of my data. Of course I FREAKED out!! I thought I had backed everything up, oops! Well, after I got done with my mental break down. I decided my previous method of organizing my life was not working. I needed to put everything, I mean EVERYTHING, every tiny detail in some sort of calendar. I NEVER wanted this to happen again!

First, I want to say this is NOT something I developed on my own. I have had many mentors over the years and cruised lots of websites. I have a gift of being able to put information into logical compartments that make sense.

We are all Busy…

This started because I saw several of my co-workers stressed out trying to work full-time, care for their families, and attempt to achieve career goals. My system was working great for me and I worked for my kids. I showed them how they could get all of their college work done and still have time to “fun things”.

Recently, I shared this with a friend and she seemed really grateful. So I thought I would write it all down and put it here. I want you to be able to focus on what you think is important in your life and quit stressing about tiny details.

What is the Goal of Just 4 You?

The main purpose and goal of this site is to share what has worked for me. It is like a buffet. You get to look around, sample this and that, and take away what works for you. Best of all most of what I publish is FREE!. I like FREE don’t you?

Most importantly, I want you to have FUN doing this!!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
