There's my girl! Cute little blondie with the pink backpack!
Ok now on to the challenges.
Day 17: Organizing my mail center....
I didn't really have one to speak of...more like what pile holds what bills!
My mom bought me the cute box when we moved into our first house. It's supposed to be for mail only I was using it to hold whatever I could stash in there.
I cleaned it out and now all the bills go inside along with stamps.
Next: I had bought this little guy a few years ago to use in my classroom..only I wasn't really using it. So I brought it home to use as my organizer in the kitchen.
didn't take too long and I had this....
Put some file folders...would like some cuter ones but these will do.
I added labels in the these categories: Receipts, coupons, take out menus, store ads, Sabrina, Wayne, Kara, and Michael.
It sits on the counter right next to my trash can for easy disposal or recycling of old items.
Day 18: Organizing your Keepsakes!
I have all of my special keepsakes for each child in boxes on the shelf in their closets.
However, ALL school keepsakes are currently being kept in this stylish keepsake box!
Actually it isn't stylish at all but it's doing the trick so far.
I love Toni's idea of using binders to store important and memorable keepsakes. I definately want to start one for each of my 2 lovely kiddos.
not the cutest of keepsake boxes..but it's functional and made of recycbled material!
Some art work hangs on our wall. I let the kids pick what they want to hang up.
I have plans to organize all of Kara's stories she has written so far this year and all the ones she will be writing.
I have been keeping them all together (well mostly...stacked in the keepsake box) and plan on putting them in a binder.
Here are a few samples:
She said the black lines means it's foggy!
