So I Need 50 of These

When I went to Office Max the other day for printer ink (and to wander because I LOVE organization & office stores sell all kinds of ways to get organized), I found the coolest thing on clearance.

This is a 2-inch, 3-ring binder with a built in file-folder and a pencil-pouch. It is amazing!

I have decided I need at least 50 of them.

I used the first one for our school stuff since it has been all over the place lately. I didn’t change any of the forms in the Lesson Plan Book, I just re-organized them into this amazing little book. I think the file folder has been the most helpful part. Now I have a place to put the blank Reading Logs and Planning Pages until I use them. I also keep the grade book, stickers, loose worksheets and new ideas I’m working on all right there!

Here’s why I need 50 of them. I use a 3-ring binder for my recipes. I try a recipe and if we like it, I add it to my book. But, I end up compiling a lot of recipes I want to try. I print them off the computer and get them in magazines, etc, and I end up with 100 tiny scraps of paper running around. Hello file-folder! Plus, I could really use one for our new Bill Binder.

Okay…so maybe I don’t need 50…but I bet I could fins a use for 50 if I had them.

In other news, I completely rearranged the dining room yesterday to make room for the new bookshelf that our awesome neighbors gave us!

First a reminder of what the dining room looked like when we bought the place.

And here’s what it looked like yesterday…

I did all this to accommodate the bookshelf so we could organize the school stuff that was starting to take over our dining room floor.
