Miscellaneous Monday

Today I am reeling from the amount of work that I have to accomplish. I'm trying to figure out how to get all of my work done, and run to the store, and deal with homework and the many after school activities of my kiddos.  So, what am I doing instead actually working?  I'm letting the stress win and am consumed with fixing my time management skills, or lack there of, and my organized/unorganized chaos.  Going back to school and work after the 75 days of summer vacation with my girls has sent my entire house into a tailspin.  We have all gotten too accustomed to our lazy days by the pool and playing with friends.  Now it is back to reality for all of us.  I don't know if it is just that the lazy-ness lingers or if we really just need an intervention.  Seeing that my desk currently looks like this, I just know I need to get on top of it pronto!

So where is the best place to go for help?  Why Pinterest of course!  I LOVE perusing the fabulous pins and could be on there forever. Maybe this could be part of the time management thing?  Nah, that is important ;)  I have found some fabulous printables and wonderful blogs that take you step by step through making an organized family binder!

This is my favorite printable that I found.  It is perfect and super cute!   She also sells this as a notepad on her Etsy Shop!

I found that the site Design  Finch has already scoured the web and found a ton of functional and cute printables to make an awesome binder!  I will definitely be taking her advice and printing some of her fabulous finds! is pretty fab as well.  She has a 7 part series on making an amazing home binder!  Wow!  Not only that but she has printables that you can customize for your family.  I am impressed!

Lastly, but certainly not least, I found A bowl full of lemons.  She has a step by step tutorial on how she made her family binder.  She has an entire blog label just for organization! She doesn't offer free printables for her binder,but the Etsy shop she orders hers from is pretty great.  Clean Mama Printables has come up with ever printable imaginable to help you get organized!

Hope these ladies have helped inspire you all as much as they have me to get this school year started off right and get organized!  I mean if nothing else, how fun will it be to print these and put them in a trendy patterned binder and just look at it on our counters? 

While I sat typing this post we had a few new Etsy order come in, which allowed us to hit the 600 Etsy sales mark!  So exciting!
I guess this means I better stop procrastinating and get to work!
