I Heart Real Simple

I've mentioned Real Simple before and was introduced to it in my first advertising job right out of college. At first I was skeptical but being the Type A person I am, I soon became a fan. While I no longer subscribe I get to read it at my parent's house when I visit them and I still get their email newsletter.

Do you like Real Simple? What other resources do you use to stay organized? 

P.S. No real July 4th plans except to try to see NYC fireworks from NJ. Really looking forward to heading to Maryland this weekend for my parents' pool party - that's where the real celebration will do down!
