My days of being an organizational queen went out the window after Carson was born. I used to be so great at keeping things in order and everything had a place. Now...there are piles all over my house! Matt is constantly asking me, "What is all of this stuff?" And I simply tell him to just not look! I got a great idea while reading a Parents magazine at my baby appt the other day. Family Clipboards! Each member of your family gets their own clipboard. You can hang them on the fridge, in an office, or next to the door you run in and out of all the time. You simply "clip" an important piece of paperwork (appt. cards, birthday invitations, to-do lists) onto the clipboard of the person it belongs to and it keeps all of those loose papers secure and easy to find!
I made one for each of us, even baby, and hope that this helps to organize my life a little more. We'll soon see!
