Organization: Time To Do Something About All These Art Supplies

I have always been crafty, so over the years, I've built up quite the collection of art supplies. I've never really had a system for keeping everything organized, until now. I had a few big plastic bins, but somehow everything ended up jumbled together in one big mess....more
Great storage solutions! Isn't it funny how the supplies multiply!   I thought I would share my ...more

Recipe Binder

Do you ever feel like you are making the same meals over and over again? I was in this funk. We have our family favorites, our quick meals, and our "oops I forgot to thaw the meat" meals.

At the end of each year, I travelled to the planning store and looked at the planning and calendar pages and carefully chose the appropriate new set of paper pages for the new year....more

Lists

I've always been a proponent of accomplishment lists instead of to-do lists.  I believe in writing down what you've achieved that day.  That being said, college has challenged that philosophy.Okay, it hasn't just challenged it...it's thrown it completely out the window.  I cannot survive right now without a to-do list.    I'm talking a comprehensive, Alzheimer avoiding, minute by minute, to-do list.  As detailed as check e-mail, water plants, and eat!...more
