Forgetful Minds

Wednesday already!  The week is flying by and I have so much to do.  We had a busy weekend and our end of the week will be very busy too.  It is no wonder I totally forgot to do Pinterest Saturday.  We will be busy this weekend as well, so I thought I would share my pins today.  Hope you don't mind.

I have been pinning away at all kinds of stuff, from organizing, yummy foods and oh my gosh, Christmas too.  I refuse to post anything Christmas until after Halloween and that goes for my Pinterest page too.  I have only liked Christmas so far.  No commitment to the Pin board yet!

I know it may sound silly, but I am one of those people who can only handle one holiday at a time.  I remember when stores did not put anything Christmas out until after Thanksgiving.  Do you remember that too?  I miss those days.  To me, it makes the holiday much more special when you don't have 2 or 3 shoved in your face at the same time.  One holiday at a time.  That is my motto!

Okay, enough babbling!  Here is what I pinned over the last week and a half.  I am focusing on some great organizing pins.  There are so many creative and very organized people out there with such great examples of how to keep your home and life in order.  I hope these pins inspire you. 

Enjoy the rest of your week and take some Time to Organize.

This is such an awesome idea for pan and pot storage.  Looks really easy to do as well.

Movie Inventory

Yeah it's Friday!  I have lots of things that I want to get done around here, but time just seems to be against me!  Come on time, work with me.  I did manage today to get done a little organizing project that I just thought of doing last night.

This week I have been working on putting together a Family Binder.  It is going to take me alot longer than I thought it would to get it done.  In the meantime, I am going to try and do some smaller organizing projects that will hopefully be quick and easy like what I did today.

I thought it would be nice to have an inventory of all our DVD's.  We are always pulling down every box that houses our movies and going through them to determine what we want to watch.  For mom and dad, this is a big pain.  We keep the movies up high on our bookshelves so our youngest isn't always getting into them. 

I put together three separate lists: Movies for Grown-ups, Kids Movies and Holiday Movies.  Here is the Grown-Up list:

Next I placed colored dots on the outside of each DVD box.
I then put dots next to the movies on the list matching the color on the box.
Then, I put the lists into clear protective sleeves and placed inside a folder.

Lastly, I put the folder up on the shelf with our DVD boxes.  Now we can just pull down the folder, pick what we want to watch and get the movie. 

 Quick and Easy!  I love that kind of organizing.  Have a great weekend and take some Time to Organize.

Pinterest Saturday

I hope everyone had a great week.  We had some unexpected rain here and cooler temperatures.  Always nice to have that kind of weather here.  I really didn't do that much pinning this week.  I am trying to go through and post the over 400 likes that I have. 

I really do not have a theme or topic for this week.  Just some random pinning.  Enjoy!

I am putting together a binder and I think I will be using some of these lists.
