Pinterest for Organization!

So I have a whole board on Pinterest just on organization.  One thing that I have always wanted to do is create a binder of organizational stuff,  like my own planner, a handy place for my important documents etc.  As I peruse Pinterest to see what there is to see, I sure found a lot of planning tools.  This made all of my thinking more of a reality.  With everything in my life being soo busy, I felt like I needed to get these ideas off of the computer and into my new fancy binder.

This binder is an all purpose binder to organize my life and is a work in progress.  At the moment, it includes these three sections: Cleaning To-Dos, Food Storage Inventory, and General Planning. Since all of these are from Pinterest, I am again enrolling in Trish's challenge.

And I know that some people will say, just leave it--but the last thing I need is the landlord to keep our security deposit. Never mind the fact that I judge the previous tenants when I move into a mess!

Pinned ImageI liked this one because of the blank spaces that it leaves to customize it.  And I feel like if I don't get something done on Monday, no big deal I can do it on Tuesday or Saturday.  It is a very doable list that I can customize!

Pin #5--My Own Planner  Original Pin    Original Link
I love this site!! Peaceful mom is where I stole so much to create my own planner.  I am VERY picky about my planner.  I have one that I use for work, but I needed some different options for home and I didn't want to spend a lot as I tried it out.  She gave me a great blank monthly calendar that isn't boring and colorless and an easy way to keep track of my time!

Goals Chart  Original Link
This site has TONS of choices, but these were my favorites off of her site. First is the food storage inventory. I have been wanting a way to keep track of what we have bought and how close I am to my goals.  We buy Shelf Reliance (highly recommend) so when I do my monthly order, this will make it really easy for me to figure out what we still need. The second is the goals chart that I want to use in a variety of places!

Hi Kimberly! I was out of town the last part of October so I missed many of the Pin It Do It posts for the month. I'm drafting a wrap-up for tomorrow so am glad to finally pop by. :) I love these organizational printouts you've found. I've been slowly gathering a few for household chores but always seem to forget to actually use them! Maybe I need to make a binder too.

Thanks for joining us! :)

I came over from Trish's round-up of Pin It and Do It Challenge posts. These organizational and planner pages look terrific. I've made some good use of printable charts and forms because they really help me keep on track.
