When Pigs Fly – an organizing series; the Pantry

When Pigs Fly an organizing series from www.thirtyhandmadedays.com

I have a confession.  Ready?  I’m not a clean and organized person.  Oh…I’ve mentioned that before?  It has been a goal of mine for about fifteen years now to get on top of my game.  But I have struggled all this time because my brain doesn’t automatically work that way.  It just doesn’t.  As much as I love to pin on my Project Organization board (it’s a good one!), those [Read More…]

Movie Theater Puppy Chow Recipe with Snickers

Movie Theater Puppy Chow with Snickers www.thirtyhandmadedays.com

We like baking together as a family. Sometimes it’s just me and one of my kids, other times it’s me and all three. And on Sundays, Josh usually cooks dinner with a “secret ingredient.” Not only do I hope my kids learn how to cook and bake, but I hope they look back on our times spent together in the kitchen with fond memories.  Recently I told my kids that [Read More…]

I have been on an organization kick for a couple weeks.  If you’re just tuning in, this is the third binder I’ve shared.  Check out my family binder and school binders. Today I’m sharing an accountability binder. What is that you ask?  This binder has a chore and money system for my kids in it.  As they’ve gotten older, it’s become increasingly obvious that we need to be more consistent [Read More…]

School Binder with Printables

Make Your Own School Binder with several free printables www.thirtyhandmadedays.com

People in my life would maybe say that I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. Once I make up my mind, there’s no going back.  Remember how I recently made a family binder and Post-it Note grids?  Well that started an organizational kick.  Finally.  It only took 30 something years, but I am feeling the need to organize.  Phew!  Part of my organizing kick included this back to school [Read More…]

Every year I make a New Year’s resolution to get more organized.  Somehow that resolution never gets checked off the list.  The saying “Creative minds are rarely tidy” sums me to the “T.”  This year (and yes the year is half over….) I am turning over a new leaf.  I can finally cross one big project off my list- Make a family binder. I rounded up some fabulous products, created [Read More…]
