Spring Cleaning just so happened to coincide with my husband starting a new job this week.
Which means I've been put in charge of dinner and dry cleaning.
Two things I've never really done before.
I'm alone all day with Wells & Tag(g)* and it's like someone has put a bee in my bonnet to get organized.
I am on a mission to get every little thing organized to run more efficiently.
I'm embarrased to tell y'all just how much fun it is.
Besides the daily corralling of too many toys my first step is to create a large home base board above our computer so I can keep track of our family.
Dry cleaning receipts, after-work meetings when my husband won't be home for dinner, photography sessions, doctors appointments, grocery lists, etc. all need a spot I can glance at quickly.
The space will take up the length of our whole dining room table (which we now use as a computer desk) so it's going to be huge.
I really really love the clean look of linen in all of these photos. And I like the idea of three panels.
Now, here's where I need your advice.
What am I missing?
My kids aren't in any kind of pre-school/MMO yet but they will be soon and I want to include room to grow.
What will be helpful when they start?
Maybe a hanging bin to place folders or art?
A little spot for spare keys?
Chalkboard? Magnetic Board?
calendars (both monthly and week at a glance)
Place to tack up dry-cleaning receipts and other weekly to-do's
grocery list/coupons & meal planning
some pretty inspiration
And of course I just adore these DIY neon push pins I saw on Made By Girl.
Those will be added for sure!
*Matthew and I are in great discussions of the spelling of our son's name.
We originally picked out Tag with one g and now we've started to feel like he looks more like a Tagg with two g's. Just ask the rappers, two g's are better than one, right?
Plus I hate how his name spelled out in either all caps or all lowercase resembles initials.
Thankfully our little darling is just four months old (today) so we are free to change it right.
