I have plucked some randomness from around my casa that are my favorites.
My FEED bag.
I support the FEED Foundation because a portion of each bag sold through the store provide meals for hungry children through the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).
The FEED bags are great to grab on your way to the grocery store so that you can do your small part for the environment and skip the plastic bags.
My Tomboy Tool fractional tape measure.
No guesswork here. Fractions are clearly marked and I use this to measure items in my inventory to list in my Etsy shop.
My daughter, Isabella, painted this for me a few years ago.
Every time I look at it in my kitchen, it makes me smile.
My vintage pink kitchen canisters. I found these in a lovely Etsy shop, JessaBellas
. Elizabeth is the shop owner and she is WONDERFUL! Shipped all the way from Australia.
My John Lennon print. My boyfriend, John, surprised me with this. It was hanging in a tobacco shop entryway for years and I wanted it. Bad.
My favorite part of the print are his drawings from the age of 11.
One of the many items that keep me organized. I found this at World Market and it has proven to be incredibly useful. I stash everything from eyeglass cleaner towels to office supplies in this.
There is a matching box where I throw my loose change.
Who had a Trapper Keeper way back when? I did!
And still do.
You are never too old for the playground or a Trapper Keeper.
It really helps a gal stay organized.
I purchased one in pink for my Tomboy business, but it also holds my mileage log, planners, inventory sheets and purchase receipts for Right Side of the Grass blog and Etsy shop.
The momAgenda I picked up from PaperSource and it not only organizes my day, but has a special area for you to organize each of your children's activities.
It is genius, that's what it is.
I also LOVE that it has two attached ribbons to mark both your daily schedule and your monthly schedule, enabling you to navigate back and forth without spending precious time flipping pages.
The momAgenda also has a detachable back section that holds the address book, a place to jot down your web sites, vehicle & insurance information, medical information for both the kids and adults in the family as well as birthdays and anniversaries. Whew!
Here is an example of a blog planner that I use and keep in the Trapper Keeper.
Don't mind the chicken scratch.
And here is where the magic happens.
It is pretty tight right now and looks cluttered but trust me, I have a space foreverything.
Here, I keep my goal sheets, my daughter's work schedule and college admission info, my son's Special Olympics paperwork, my other daughter's Navy Sea Cadet schedule & assignments,
and love notes from my Johnnie.
My plan is to make this a little easier on the eyes, but I just have not made it a priority.
So now you have had a little mini tour of my surroundings.
Now, off to a job interview. Wish me luck.
