Great tips, Denise! This is a constant struggle for me. I use Evernote and OmniFocus to manage my to-dos (most of which come in via email), but it seems like every few days I spend an hour or more on cleanup.
Scott at Excel Auto Sales provides outstanding service at a great price. He's trustworthy and will always let you know when an expensive repair or diagnostic test just isn't worth your time or money. I've been very happy with all the work he's done on my cars.
