At our house, we are not so great at grocery lists.

Having admitted we have a grocery planning problem, I went in search of a solution, and found this lovely little Grocery Planner Clipboard project from Design Sponge!
School mornings can get hectic at our house, especially if I need to spend time following the kids around, nagging reminding them to get dressed, brush their teeth, find their shoes and backpack, etc. I recently came across this Morning Routine Chart on How Does She, and thought Eureka!

Artwork displayed is not only a confidence booster for the kiddos, but it brings original and wonderful splashes of color into the home. Here are some solutions that bring a bit of order and style to displaying the many works of art!
In general I’m a list maker. It helps me keep on top of my never ending to-do list. In fact, there are usually three or four lists floating around here at any given moment… Usually these lists are scrawled on random pieces of paper or notebooks, but lately I’ve felt the urge to get a little more formal, and hopefully a little more effective! I googled for a bit on the subject, and found some candidates for my new and improved to-do list, so I thought I’d share…
