I have gotten so blog-lazy lately. Just pictures and short comments. We have so much going on that I would love to share. Today I decided to post a helpful hint. Hope it is helpful!
This time of year we get lots of papers from the school requesting money or signatures for various last days of school activities. In addition, the summer camps start sending letters with sign-up sheets and deposit requests.
It can be totally overwhelming. I can never remember it all. With 4 kiddos in school, I found myself under this pile of papers and needing a better system. The old one of writing things on the calendar just wasn't working anymore.
So I came up with one. I organized the information/request sheets by due date. Then I stapled them together like this.
|I put the lists of information on top and then filed the papers under those by due date.|
|Now back to that stapled pile of papers. I go back to the request sheet and label what has been paid and when it was paid. This way I don't do it twice if they send a reminder sheet.|
