Works For Me Wednesday
Thank you to Shannon for hosting Works For Me Wednesday over at her blog Rocks In My Dryer
Sometimes I struggle trying to find something to write about, but I love having people come visit my blog, so I always find something so that I can participate in WFMW.
For years I have been disorganized, which is pretty strange because I was very organized when I was younger. Messy, yes, but still organized. My organizational skills have slowly been depleting over the years, until I finally went out and purchased a nice large dry erase board for myself.
I love it!
It is quite large, and has a calendar on it where I can write in the dates, and stuff needed to be done that day. And on the side, it has some blank writing areas and a "to do" section. Every time I have an appointment, or I need to get something done, etc etc, I write it down on there. And then when I am finished, I just erase it. Since it is right in the kitchen and beside the phone, I see it all the time too, so I am constantly reminded of what needs to be done.
Traditional calendars may be pretty to look at, but they don't work for me at all. I like that the dry erase board is re-usable too, and that I can use any color maker I want depending on my mood. Right now I use green!
My companion to the dry erase board is a little brown notebook that my middle daughter got me for my birthday. If I am going somewhere one day, all my lists go in there, appointment times etc. It is always in my purse, I don't think I could do without it now, it is so handy!
