I have been busily working to get my new binder into something resembling organized. I have many cute pen colors, highlighters, sticky notes… but I keep using the pink pen in the side loop. Kinda defeats the multi-pen purpose. Hrm.
First I wanted to show off my ruler/page finder thing. I used the idea from Living The Good Life that I found on Pinterest to add my weekly menu on that ruler thing. BRILLIANT! When I was at Joann the other day, I found the $1 end cap in the scrapbook area and these adorable rub off letters and thought that would be perfect for my ruler to delineate the Days.
As a quick aside… I may be considered a crafty person, and some crafty things I am pretty good at. However, these had no instructions, so I had to wing it. I sucked at it, lost both of my Ts when I was trying to put the M on, so Tuesday is a U and Thursday is a R (which is what I usually use anyway). Sigh.
Next, I wanted to point out my chore tabs. These are from the Martha Stewart line at Staples. They are re-stick-able so when a chore is done for the week, I move it to the next week. That way I don’t have to write it over and over and it is really easy to see what I still have to do. For example, I have not yet cleaned either bathroom, scrubbed the kitchen counters, or mopped. (Moving on!)
As I get it more together, I will show it off more. I love it, it’s pretty, and I think it may be working. However, it is HUGE and heavy, and somewhat daunting. We’ll see how it goes.
Menu Plan Monday
Org Junkie is a site that I find myself pinning from quite frequently. I have many aspirations that started there… and since I think it’s a good idea to have SOME accountability, (and also… I’m a follower), I thought I’d join in the fun. Each Monday, she hosts Menu Plan Monday, a list of bloggers that are showing off what they plan to make that week for supper, often with links to the recipes. It is a great way to
stalk see what others are making to give you ideas to steal make, too!
Here is my menu plan for this week (you can see it in my binder ^ up there!)
Monday: Cheesy Potato Beef Bake
Tuesday: Tuna Noodle Casserole – this was hubby’s request!
Wednesday: Crock Pot Cilantro Lime Chicken (from the cook day!)
Thursday: Chili – I use the Chili Magic brand with petit diced tomatoes. My 11 yr old is making this.
Friday: Steak and Twice Baked Potatoes
Sunday: Sunday Chicken
