Four kids in school= four piles of papers that I will forget, lose, and then throw away when I come across the pile 6 months later.
It’s my paper existence. Total disaster.
Something had to change this year.
I needed a place to put the permission slip until I was able to fill it out. I needed a place to store the spelling list of the week.
I needed to free up my counter space, bulletin board, and most importantly– my brain!
Here’s my solution–
It’s cute, compact and user friendly.
It’s also a pipe dream that this thing will get me organized, but a girl can dream, right?
I can’t wait until the moment I actually lose the the whole holder- that’ll be stellar.
Martha Stewart box from Staples
Martha Stewart files from Staples
felt flowers from Michael’s
ribbon from Michael’s
wood rectangles in 2 sizes from Michael’s
yellow paint (red in the pic, but I changed my mind!)
Paint wood rectangles with paint and chalkboard paint
Glue chalkboard painted on on top of the yellow one
Glue rectangles onto the file box
Glue felt flowers onto the box
Run thread through the top of a cut of ribbon– about a yard
Proceed to the end
Pull on thread until it form a round flower
Tie ends together forming a circle of ribbon
Glue button on top
Glue onto box
Now all my disorganized problems will vanish!
