Going paperless!!!!


I love lists!! I like to write everything that I have to do down.  I used to have to worry about losing my lists.  It was a bad thing when someone took Mommys’ slip of paper off of the counter.  Then my head would be at a loss of what to do.  So I switched to a notebook.  I would write my lists out and then after looking at them being all scratched off and messy, I would find myself rewriting those lists with the things I didn’t scratch off so that I could have a nice neat piece of paper.  I got tired of wasting time rewriting my lists.  Plus I was wasting much paper.  So I decided to go paperless.

I saw somewhere on the internet where people were making dry erase boards out of a picture frame, and I thought that was cute.  But I wanted to go a step further and make it like my notebook.  For Christmas I made my daughter a really cute weekly organizer out of a picture frame.  You can see that here.  After since realizing how useful hers was, I decided to make one for myself.

I bought a picture frame, scrapbook paper, and some sticker letters.  I placed topics that I would normally write on my paper lists with stickers on my scrapbook paper.  Those topics included:

  • Office—things to do on my office day
  • blog—things I wanted to write about or remember to do on my blog
  • store—things I ran out of, or needed to get at the store
  • baking–things I wanted to make that week
  • reminders—things I needed to remember short term
  • children–things I wanted to remember for the children to do
