the weekend organizer {creating simplified + organized personal reference files} | Fabulously Organized Home - Did this Feb '13! Love it!! Can't believe I didn't do something like this sooner! It will take some time to get used to where things are now, but it is much better, and cleaner than my old organized system. :)


Ocean Water

Ocean Water - 7Up or Sprite, blue food coloring, Swedish Fish. Fun for kids summer parties. // For more family resources visit! :)

Instead of giving kids an arbitrary allowance, they can pick what tasks they want to do and earn as much money as they choose. Dave Ramsey talks about this...very cool.

Frames filled with cork board for kids artwork and writings- instead of pinning on fridge, hang on the wall and have constant changing wall art!

Make Ahead Cold Lunches {A Week's Worth of Lunches in a day!}

Awesome kids lunch ideas for helping save time. Make all your lunches in one day for the week and have your kids grab their own lunch and pack it easily each morning before school. I have done this method for years and it works!! No more cafeteria mystery hamburgers... :)

Scary! Take a picture of the first and last day of school to see how much they change over the year - this would make a really cute photo book when they graduate high school.
