Why This Pen and Paper Gal is Turning to Digital Organization (A Review of the New ListPlanIt)

Why this pen and paper gal is turning to digital organization

One of my favorite ways to stay organized has just gotten even better. I’ve been using ListPlanIt’s printable lists and organizational pages in my homemaking binder, menu plans on my fridge, shopping lists tucked into my purse, and anywhere else I needed them for the last several years. Personally, I still love printable lists. I’m a pen and paper gal at heart. These days, though, I’m sort of without my pen and paper. As we’re traveling this year, we don’t have printer access, nor do […]

Fall always finds me preparing new schedules and routines, re-organizing, and yes, writing lists. There’s something about getting back into the regular everyday groove after summer that just makes me want to get organized. I held a garage sale a couple weeks ago, have been setting up a new homeschooling binder for the year, am tweaking a daily routine for myself and the kids, getting back to meal planning, and all of those good things that make my life run a little bit smoother. Whenever […]

  Written by Natalie Klejwa, Contributing Writer Ever wake up in the morning overwhelmed with all that needs to get done that day?  You want to pull those covers over your head and pretend those loads of laundry, that dirty kitchen, and those hungry children aren’t waiting for you.  I’ve been there too many times to count. Other mornings I’ve had the experience of waking up rested and peace-filled, to a quiet house, a clean kitchen, and a manageable routine awaiting my oversight.  What makes […]

*Giveaway has now ended* As I take some downtime this winter to recover and allow my body some time to heal, I am also contemplating my schedule for the upcoming months. One of my major goals has been to clear a lot of the busyness off of my plate, making my schedule more realistic with a whole lot more margin for rest, the regular interruptions of daily life (messes, unexpected visitors, phone calls, etc.) and mostly for being able to stop and savor those golden moments that […]

Organization in the Real Food Kitchen: Favorite Recipes Lists

My poor hubby. He really dislikes piles, and yet he married a gal who’s just a little bit “out of sight, out of mind”. Thus, I’m a piler. All through the Christmas holidays, there was one particular pile that continued to be moved around from table to table, dresser to desk, and back to the table again. I am thrilled to announce, though, that the pile is soon to be completely gone as I am nearly done my recent recipe overhaul! My recipe organization has […]

I’ve always been a list maker. I make lists of what needs to be done in the day, what food is in the fridge that needs to be used up, what meals I’m going to make, what to pack for a trip, what gifts to buy, what errands to run and what order to do them in, what blog posts I want to write, and what I’m going to wear each day (okay, so that last one isn’t true, but the other ones all are).
