You all are TOTALLY going to laugh at me! But if you are OCD or any kind of over the edge organized person (or WANT to be that kind of person, because you know some of you do) you will love this little find!
I am never happy with my “To Do” lists.
I keep most things on my computer and therefore synced to my phone, but I have never really gotten into keeping lists for particular projects on my computer. I tend to use them so much throughout the day and want them to be my friend and hold my hand wherever I am….the kitchen counter, next to my bed, the car, the diaper bag…I need the lists everywhere. (Though have you ever found that you just keeping making the same lists over and over again because you can’t figure out where you left the last one??? Or is that just my prego brain??)
I suppose in a way it’s like carrying a day planner, which I’ve never been a fan of carrying. Truthfully, the day planner part is already taken care on the computer/phone. What I needed was a “project binder”. A place where I could keep a number of running ‘To Do” lists for different projects and be able to add paper at a whim to each list without fear of backing into a list a few pages down on the same notepad…
So Hayden and I headed off to Staples to see what we could find. And the solution is perfect for me and my crazy life!
a small 3 ring binder
5 1/2 x 8 1/2, lined filler paper
(LOVE these! New FAVORITE for sure!)
and headed home.
Now there is nothing glamorous about this notebook.
But check out the NoteTabs!! They come similar to a post it pad.
Just peel and stick and write on the tab.
They are “durable” and “repositionable”!
And yes that is my non polished, Sally Hanson Finished nail in the photo below!
(Looks like a manicure, huh!?!? Painted them while reading emails, 3 seconds….)
Then I printed off a few months of calendars from my computer.
(The same ones that show up on my phone)
Here’s the Birthday Project List with its own little easy to find tab!
I know, I know, I’m such an organizational loser!
But seriously this just helps me keep my brain in place.
I’m sure there is a great project app, or program, or way to track this easily to sync with my calendar,
but for as much as I love high tech and the ease and efficiency it gives us
there are some things that I just prefer the “old fashion” way…
and I LOVE my new little project binder
and ESPECIALLY LOVE the NoteTabs. I’m about to use them EVERYWHERE!
Enjoy the last 2 days of the week! I’m off to find a cute download cover for the binder
(and to change a few diapers, and make dinner, and do some laundry…)
See ya Friday!
