I like organizers. They are fun to get creative with and actually it’s fun with to-do lists and to check them off as you do your daily tasks. I’ve seen lots of ideas and expensive accessories that some people have. Myself, I am on a budget but still can splurge on a nice basic set of a notebook and filler. Then I can buy a few on sale stuff at Michaels Craft store and Walmart for little sticky notes and very frugal accessories.
I always wished that I had good penmanship, but I just don’t. Some people really get into colored pens and really neat writing. I just have fun with it and accept my limits to what I have time for and what I want to do.
There are so many ideas on staying organized. I want everything I see as usual, but have to limit myself to what is within my limits. But I have fun with it.
A books to read list is a fun idea that I saw.
Then I like Nantucket Island and ACK is the code for airplanes when they land at the airport on Nantucket. So I like the above emblem that the C is a map of the island. A lot of people have similar stickers like that on their cars if they go to Nantucket much.
So I have that in my organizer because it makes me smile.
Then I like anything French and I have the above photo at the beginning of my organizer. I made up my own photo holders by cutting out the separate 4X6 holders in a 81/2 by 11 plastic photo page that had the holes in the side to go into the ringed notebook. Works really slick.
Then I make my own bookmarks from photos that I like by just taking them to Staples and have them embossed in plastic. Makes my organizer my own and everything that I like.
I can’t write fancy, but I can copy fancy writing and insert that in pages. And again, I like French stuff.
I find inspirations to copy that are fun.
More Nantucket. It always makes me smile and the day to go better to see Brandt Point on Nantucket Island. There is a Jetty Beach right near that lighthouse and one summer I had the best tan ever as I had a job that I didn’t have to be to work until 10:00 am in a gift shop. I used to get an hours sun every morning and it was just the best summer I can remember.That beach was just around the corner from Stilldock where I was lucky enough to have a beautiful, beautiful apartment that was steps away from where I worked.
So many cute ideas to make the organizer work.
So easy to get a format of the above and make copies and then use a paper hole punch to fit it into the organizer.
You can plan meals color code stuff.
All kinds of formats that can be copied.
On youtube I found a video on how to do fancy writing in an organizer. It was fun to try, but not much hope in my handwriting.
I have inspirations that I put in the organizer each week.
And that’s my thoughts for today……
