Mommy's Notebook (Organizer)

Owl Pen holder (bought at Target)

Weekly Schedule - tells Mommy when to send lunch to school and after school activities. Created in Excel, easy for Mommy to update weekly. After school activities start next week, soccer 3x/week and dance 1x/week.

Class Schedule - tells Mommy when Chloe needs to wear tennis shoes to school for PE. Created in Excel.

Homework To Do for Son (his name will be added to the bottom of the folder)

Left: Class Info
Right: Daughter's Homework To Do (her name will be added to the bottom)

Left: Class Information
Right: I needed a handy way to keep up with the Catechism book

Lots more to do to this organizer but wanted to show you what I have so far. I plan to decorate the front cover and add the kids' names to their homework folders. I wanted to create something so my husband and I could quickly glance in here and see what is happening each day. Although, I doubt my husband will ever use it...he relies on me to take care of all the "stuff" and to let him know if I need help with anything.

I made the folder to hold the catechism book, just free handed it. The other folders were bought at Target.

If you have any ideas for me, please pass them along. This is only one of my "get organized" projects...I'm cleaning out my house and getting rid of should see our donate piles!

What a great idea! I need something like this to carry with me AT ALL TIMES! So far it's looking great, I love all the colors and fun prints you have used. Don't forget to post the finished project, can't wait to see what else you do to "pretty it up"!
