Well, it is officially that time of the year again. The birds are singing and all the colors look brighter. 😉 Yep, it’s back to school time! Unfortunately, the chaos that can ensue each morning can ruin an otherwise beginning to a wonderful day. So, to help keep the chaos down to a minimum, I am sharing some of my favorite back to school organizing tips, plus you can snag my free printable for the ultimate school planner!
How many times have you downloaded a free printable only to be a little disappointed with the quality once you printed it? I feel ya! I’ve been there myself a few times. You love those pretty displays and the images that you see presented by the designers, and you wonder exactly how to print perfect printables for yourself. What is the magic technique that they are using to get them so vibrant?
I don’t know about you, but when I buy a piece of clothing I like it to stay looking like new for as long as possible. I do all the recommended tricks for keeping things in perfect shape. To name just a few: I spot clean as needed. I turn my jeans inside out before washing. And the big one, I don’t let my husband wash anything that I really like. 😉 But the most important thing that I have done is understanding laundry tags and their symbols.
This weekend officially kicked off the frenzy of work that I do each and every spring. Just yesterday, I changed out the sand in my pool filter. Thankfully, that is not an annual maintenance issue. I am also thankful for the warm weather. It makes it so much nicer to get everything checked off my spring cleaning checklist. And since I shared my fall cleaning checklist with everyone last year, I am offering my ultimate spring cleaning checklist to you this year!
Sometime last year, I started to notice this new trend. I was scrolling through Pinterest looking at all the different planners that are available. About halfway down the page, I noticed this very pretty, hand-drawn, calendar. Well, naturally I had to check it out. This quickly led me into the world of bullet journalling. If you are unfamiliar with bullet journalling, let me just tell you that it is so much fun! I love seeing my bullet journals come alive. So, I thought that I would share with you some of my bullet journal ideas, and how to get started.
