As I've shared on my blog several times before, I do LOVE to be
O R G A N I Z E D …
in fact, I love anything to do with organization. I love all those cute boxes, bins, baskets, folders, notebooks, etc., etc., etc. that are sold by the likes of Ikea, containerstore.com, Target, seejanework.com and other wise businesses that understand us organization junkies! I saw the c-u-t-e-s-t green boxes at Wal-Mart today…I just stood there drooling. I may have to go back and get those for an upcoming project.
Here is my newest addition to my "organized everything" mentality…
I read about setting up a notebook for anyone who wanted to run their household more smoothly. Without children living at home anymore I don't have to worry so much about a dozen different schedules, but we do still have grandkids' soccer and baseball games and school programs to attend, church and work responsibilities to get done, and of course all those enjoyable dentist and doctor appointments. There's just something about seeing all that organized and down in print that I like!
I divided my HOUSEHOLD AGENDA into various sections including:
(for helping me to remember all those pesky passwords & login names!)
(for everything else)
Look at these too cute Calendars…
My birthday month:)
I have to give credit for these to this wonderful blog site…
anythingbutperfect.com is owned by the cutest gal named Angela who describes herself as creative (I definitely agree) and slightly OCD (oh, yeah…I can identify with that!) She has sooo many cute freebie printables on her blog and I have grabbed my share. Thank you, AngelaJ Everything she creates is rather perfect to me!
Here are my Weekly Menus…well, the blank pages anyway. I'm still a work in progress on setting up these. I do think though that if I can get used to doing them they will save me time and money…both of which sound great to me!
This is my grocery list...yes, it's in ABC order:) For the almost 42 years we've been married I do the bulk of my grocery shopping once a week. I use this list monthly to help me keep up with what I need to buy. I just check the pantry and cabinets against the list to see what we need.
Here are my TO DO LISTS...also a work in progress. I tend to write down notes all over the place and stack them up near the phone. This was my Jan. list and I did manage to accomplish some of it!
I always try to keep a running list of PROJECTS…there are always things to be done, both "now" and "in the future". I love it when I get to √ off an item or two…mission accomplished!
I do still have some empty sections and haven't yet decided what all I want to include, but I'm sure as the year progresses I'll think of something! I have been pleasantly surprised at how often I go to my AGENDA...just seeing it sitting there next to the phone gives me an organized feeling. We all gotta get our highs somehow!
Better go check the calendar and see what's up for the rest of the day! Hope all is well with you and yours.
