One of my main goals this year is to get a little more organized. When I saw this project on Erica's blog, knew I needed one too. We have been doing better with our home organization, but it's nice to have everything in one spot. I used Boards and Beams from PTI for the house and the letters are Sizzix Round Table alphabet set. My wonderful friend Julie let me borrow this image and I loved it so much I had to order my own. My house is colored with Prisma markers. I could not get a picture of this without the flash showing up and without the flash it was just too dark.
If you are interested, inside my binder are dividers and I have the following sections:
Calendar: We both have schedules that change frequently and I cannot live without a
calendar. I have calendars for the entire year for long term planning. On our refrigerator
we have a dry erase calendar that has a space for each day of the week. On Sunday nights I
transfer that week's information. If I am really on top of everything I also write in the
meals so I know what needs to be pulled out of the freezer each day.
Housework Lists: We made lists of things that need to be done around the house and then
separated that list into things that need to be done on a daily basis, weekly basis and a
monthly basis. We alternate who does what. Kip also had the great idea for us both to
come up with what needs to be done for it to be considered done. For instance, one of us
HATES putting away laundry and when it is my my turn, I forget to put it away. All those
lists are in this section.
Projects: A new thing for us,but we are planning to do some rearranging and other things
around the house and this is where we will keep up with all that information.
Goals: Just a way to track our progress as we try to meet certain goals, right now, saving for furniture.
Menu: I try to preplan our meals, sometimes doing better than others. My meal planners
are in this section as well as recipes that I find and want to try. Erica's blog is great for
Lists: I will keep things like birthday lists, Christmas lists and other things like that in here.
Plus there is a section for each of us to file things in and a folder with a velcro closure for receipts. Have a great day!
