Managing the Chaos
As it is mid-August, it is back to school time in my area. This means finding lunch boxes and backpacks that were abandoned in June, shopping for school supplies and returning to a busy schedule. I've also taken on a different role at work so I will be needing school supplies that reflect an increasing number of meetings I will be attending and remembering what I will need to do next. I will also be making my own schedule versus following one all the time. I searched through Amazon for a planner that fits what I think I will need but I'm a person who needs to see and feel stuff so I ended up going to Staples to look at each planner. I came across an Erin Condren Planner Vertical Style in MidCentury Circles that fit my needs and more. I'd like to share the set up, organization and how I fell in love with this planner after a few hours.
The bargain bin...
Ahh, the lure of the bargain bin....I get caught there too. Here's some tips and ideas of what to do with those bargain bin stamps you couldn't resist.
I am a teacher and part of that job is about being a cheerleader for your students. My students are in high school and have been reporting to me the amount of stress they have been under for college, grades and all the other stuff that we had to go through too. I wanted to make cards for my students to let them know I'm in their corner. I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's campaign to share kindness within your community.
