I am doing a listersgottalist challenge in April, hosted by @theresetgirl, and she provided everyone with rules and labels for their notebooks. I wanted to personalize mine a little bit, to coordinate with the project life cards I plan on using during the month, so I made these:

I just wanted to put them somewhere others could access it in case they wanted to use this instead. It can be found for free, here: listers gotta list labels - color 

I DID NOT MAKE THIS LIST, Cori, aka theresetgirl did! All credit goes to her! Enjoy if you use it!

Yet another week...

I decided to go with a black and pinks theme this week. I found some stickers left over from the days when I thought I was going to be an awesome scrapbooker (um, nope) and thought they looked like a good deal for this week. 

It is kind of a light week this week, so there are a lot more quote and decorative stickers than in the past. I got a sheet of pink quotes off a facebook group I am in for planner geeks, printed them off and ran them through my sticker maker. Which is my favorite thing ever, btw.

Stickers are from Facebook and Making Memories "Sabrina" collection. Water tracker is from Mrs. Wenduhh (link in first week's post), washi from Michael's. Pink and gold dot flag is from Target dollar section.

This week in my life...

I am loving this decorated planner thing. I keep my planners every year, so I can look back at them on occasion, and I'm going to enjoy that a lot more with a pretty planner. :)

I tried to stick to oranges this week, but that wasn't completely simple. I also put some permanent stickers down without thinking about it so some mornings get crunched.

BFFJ and I went shopping for supplies this weekend, and I left with some more washi tape, and those big cards you see on Thursday and Friday. I've been using them to write down 5 positive things from the week.

Flag post-it (tuesday/wed) is a K&C smash set and water tracker is sourced in last week's planner post. Washi tae is from Target and Michael's.

This week...

I am currently OBSESSED with my planner. I've been using Plum Paper paper planners for 3 years now, and I love them. I've had a meal planner, family planner, and now, this year I got the blank planner.

I had alway just been writing my things down, with pretty colored pens, because I like pretty things. Well, in a quest to get organized, I started searching Pinterest for effective ways to use my planner.

Oh. my. goodness.

So many pretties. I now have a pinterest board just for planners. I also asked for, and received, a little sticker maker for Christmas. I spent a good portion of my Sunday making stickers. Then I planned out my week:

Ok, so actually, this picture is from before I got my sticker maker. Washi tape has been a pretty big thing at our house lately. I had several rolls, and was just using that. Then I got the sticker maker. I ran to my pinterest board and started printing the things I'd been saving and added a few.

I printed the little running guy to represent cardio from a clipart I found online. I got the water tracker from here, and the Happy New Year banner from here. I had to seriously cut down the new year banner, as it's made too big to fit in the lines on mine, but still pretty.

I have been anxiously awaiting today so that I could start using my new planner. My old one was wonderful, but there's just something special about a new year, and the crisp, cleanness of a new planner and a fresh start.

It's the most wonderful time of the year

It's that time of year when new planners show up and you get to play with their fresh, clean, awesome pages.


It's shameful how long it took me to remember how to upload this picture. Shameful.

Halls and Nyquil dose-cup included for real-life feels. Not pictured: The one-year-olds steroids for pneumonia.

*clears throat*

Um. Hi.

Just checking in.

Came here today to show a co-worker pictures (outdated) of my kitchen. Thought I'd say hi.

Organizing Challenge Week 10: Organize Your Magazines and Newspapers!

This is a great week for me. Know why? We subscribe to exactly 0 magazines and 0 newspapers.

However. We get one magazine (Parents) and one newspaper (neighborhood local).

I'm not sure why we get Parents, no one has admitted to giving us a subscription and I'm not getting charged for it. When it shows up I throw it directly into the recycling bin, it never even comes in the house.

The local paper I bring in, glance through it then throw it in our newspaper bin for fire starting purposes. If that's full, into the recycling.

Boom. Done.

What are your methods for organizing magazines and newspapers?
