Holiday Card Display

One of my best friends happens to be one of the most organized people I have ever met. She literally has a folder for everything, a labeled box for anything, AND she has a genius way of organizing holiday cards — by hole punching them and putting them on a ring. No clutter, no loose mail, and everything is all in one place. So I did as all fans do and copied her.  It sounds so silly, but it’s been a game changer! It might be an overstatement to say it has changed my life, but I kinda feel like it has. #Dramatic

 

You simply punch a hole in the corner and put it on the key ring. So easy (and cheap). And it feels so clean and organized. A game changer!

Artkive

Greetings from the Paris airport!  I am en route back to New York after running the Paris Marathon yesterday.  More to come later this week, but let’s just say I am happy, excited to see my family, and REALLY, REALLY tired.  On to today’s post!

 

Do you have stacks upon stacks of cute artwork made by your child and no idea what to do with it? I know I do! So I was beyond thrilled to discover Artkive App — an app that allows you to artkive (archive, get it?) all of your kids’ art.  You can store art and information, and then order books of it when you need presents for family. MAGIC!

As a compulsive organizer, I rely and *need* to write down and organize my thoughts. Jotting down my errands, tasks (and yes, I do write “Take a shower” on my to-do-list) is an essential part of my day. And not just on any type of paper, but on pads and posts from Knock Knock.

HALLELUJAH!

HALLELUJAH! Thank goodness for all these tools!

Back to School

Having been a math teacher for 10 years and a student before that, this will be my first Fall without going back to ‘school.’ Freshly retired, (I will still be private tutoring, and of course, writing the blog!) I still love the feeling of buying school supplies, starting a new year, and becoming (more) organized. Here are my favorite supplies slash beauty products slash accessories, for  “Back to School.”
