With a new year beginning, I have another opportunity to try and get organized and get things done! With a baby on the way and a toddler turning two next week (yikes!), most of the projects I want to finish center around completing their bedrooms, as well as my own, which is getting its very own crafting corner.
I’ve made a huge “to-do” list for myself and the Mr., and the following ten projects are ones that I pledge to finish this year, gosh darnit. I’ll let you know my progress; be sure and hold me accountable!
My mother is a huge fan of both takeout. [sidenote: In her defense, she works the graveyard shift, so when she wakes up after a day of sleeping there isn’t much time for her to cook a meal before getting ready for work] She also loves herself some coupons; I guess that’s where I get my frugal nature from.
So for Mother’s Day this year, I thought I would make her a takeout menu/coupon binder to hold all her goodies (especially since her current organization method consists of an old, decrepit paper folder). The materials only cost me around $7.50, and assembly was no more than an hour or two process. I’ve seen these online and in bookstores for around $20, and they are half the size of the one I made, which just isn’t big enough for some coupon flyers.
