Today was "get organised" in our house with inspiration coming from here - http://www.crystalwilkerson.com/2011/12 and little visual inspiration...
So, for our organising, I created three folders (more to come once I go back to officeworks) with titles stuck down the sides of big A4 leaver folders such as "Bills 2012", "School 2012" and "Mummy Stuff 2012" Inside I have placed monthly cardboard dividers so we can find things more efficiently.
I also decked out a promotional diary my husband got given through work - think it had concrete and tile adds in or something along those lines, and covered the front and inside cover with patterned paper and photos.
I nick named it "the Book" as "if it's not in the book - it's not happening": )
On each birthday I have added a photo of the birthday person.
In keeping with tradition, I have coloured coded our family again - it is the same system and colours we use for the big calenders, toothbrushes, cups etc - easy to see at a glance who has something on when you see their colour on the board ; )
