I don't enjoy filing...I won't say HATE....but...
I decided to cover some file folders with scrap paper...just used a glue stick, scissors and covered several of them.
I figure if you have to look at them at least they could look pretty!
I really want our home to flow, be peaceful and be able to find things when I need them...especially papers. Since I'm the "looker" who looks for things that have somehow disappeared...
My aim and goal is to have things look orderly, organized, and labeled...so that when I look....I can find!photo: BHG
Love this little painted bookshelf, lined with scrapbook paper in the back. Buckets hold sports gear, mittens, hats, things for the outdoor. I would love this right by our back door.
We actually have nest boxes in the barn for the chickens to lay eggs that look like the cubby holder below....hmmmm....
Below is a printable 2012 calendar, small but easy to locate an important date! Notice February has leap year this year...I was born on leap year, and reminded my husband that it was no excuse to forget my birthday just because it wasn't on the other calendars!
Below is a site with dozens of free printables that you put in your home planner, I love these. Once you save them in your computer you can print out as many copies as you need. They are wonderful for organizing your kids, schedules, bills, home management...etc.
Below is just a cute little file folder made into a tiny bit of organization.http://burstsofcreativity.blogspot.com/2011/04/file-folder-mini-tutorial.html
Download a Pattern to make these little mini file folders out of scrap paper...I would use red and white papers to go with my decor...http://www.memorymakersmagazine.com/blog/FREE+Minifile+Folder+Template+Download+And+Project+Idea.aspx
Below is a fabric file folder, with a very easy tutorial. I love the idea of this for important papers or info that you want to be accessible, maybe on your desk or work area....pretty to look at, contains the mess, yet it's right there at your fingertips!
Below are some of my favorite red labels. You can find them here with much more @ http://ihanna.nu/download/red_labels_by_ihanna.pdf
My feeling is this, if it is labeled...other people can FIND IT! For example: the keys are in the KEY BASKET! SEE THE CUTE RED AND WHITE LABEL THAT SAYS 'KEYS'?
I rest my case!
