I love to stay organized, in all areas of my life, but the biggest is on paper. I was the kid that would come home from school and re-write all my notes from the day because I felt they were too sloppy, I love buying office supplies, and have been trying for years to perfect my system.
I think I have finally made the perfect system for my home, and wanted to share with y'all!
First, and the most important, my Erin Condren life planner. I got my first one last year, using a daily deal site, and was excited to try it out (a planner of mine usually lasts about 5 months before I move onto a new one), it was amazing, I have used it probably 5 times a day everyday since it arrived. I can not describe how much I love it.
When I saw the new version was coming out for July I decided to go ahead and purchase now, even though my old one goes through Dec. With Baby3 coming in January I wanted one that went through 2013 so all appointments and schedules wouldn't need switched at the end of the year.
Here is the link to the Erin Condren Site , I am just a very happy customer and am not affiliated with them in any other way....I just love their products!
So here is the new version!!!
And in case anyone wonders if I use it, here is my page for July and this week.....
To go along with my planner I have also made a home management binder. I have taken numerous pins, and created what works best for my family. The binder is Martha Stewart Line at Staples. LOVE that it matches my planner (which was done on purpose of course)
3. Contacts. No photos of this because it is just a list of family and friend addresses, a list of online passwords, a list of take-out restaurants in the area.
4. Meal Planning. This is a big section. I have a template I found through Pinterest which lists all meals for a week (this copy stays in the binder) and a template of a two week planner (I only grocery shop once every 2 weeks) this copy gets put on the fridge. There is also notebook paper to make my grocery list, and I am working on pages of our family's favorite meals to have while meal planning.
Lastly, I also have a calender on my fridge, which is also from Erin Condren. I guess I have to write things down in several places.
I am linking up @ thetichenorfamily.com to share how much I LOVE my new Erin Condren Planner!!
