One thing that has been hard for me to do has been organizing all of my blogging items. I started this blog at the end of February 2012, and didn't really know what to expect. I just wanted to share ideas and pics of what was happening in my classroom. My first post:)
Then I started making connections with other bloggers and opened up my own TpT store in May. I didn't think of it as anything much, but WOW! It snowballed into almost...I daresay...a second job!!
Seriously there is so much to this little blog now and I am sometimes completely overwhelmed!!
So I decided it was time to get this little side job organized and treat it like the real job that it is.
When I started this is all that I used for the first year.
Whenever I had an idea I would write it down, or sketch it out. It is also filled with all of my login/password codes for the numerous sites I use.
Well that little book is completely filled up now!!
So what am I using this year??
I really wanted to get one of these babies!!
But after looking at in online, I really wanted to get my hands on it and see if I liked it physically.
Plus the $50 price tag was just a bit too steep after this Christmas in Arizona.
I was also told about this wonderful product from The Clutter Free Classroom.
It has tons of printables to help you stay organized, but I wanted something that was sturdy and colorful, and again I wanted to know exactly what was in it!!
So I headed out to Target to see what they had.
This is what I found.
The cover is laminated along with the tabs for each month, and you can slip pictures inside the clear pocket on the front
It's 8.5 x 11 which gives me more room and has monthly and weekly dates:)
I also found this little baby!! I can write down all my passwords in one place and not go hunting for them when I forget. I need to find a safe place for this one!!
I also found a pretty journal to sketch and write down any ideas I get at 2 am!!
So I bought all of these, which were on sale for a lot less than I would have paid for the Erin Condren planner. I knew exactly what was in there, and it's pretty!
Since I was in the organizing mode I also picked up this great little filing box for my weekly work at school.
I plan to make labels for Monday through Friday and have all of my printables for the week in here. What I have now is a mess!!
I love the lid too, it pops open for extra storage.
I am so excited to start planning and organizing for this new year!
Do I sound like a total nerd? I am, it's the Virgo in me I guess. I love to have everything in order, lol.
Well I am off to fill up my books with wonderful ideas for the new year and plan for my day back to work tomorrow.
How do you keep your blog posts/products organized? I'd love to hear all about it!
