I always said that my children would not be over scheduled...........ok, I still don't think they are over scheduled but I do think we are pretty darn close. The only days that we have without an activity are Tuesday or Saturday. I am a stay at home mom and I still feel like I do not have enough time to get everything done. I make a to do list and as soon as I cross something off the list I add three more things! How do I keep it all straight, a calendar. Ok, I have about 3 calendars but I don't know how else to keep it straight. I also use a file box that I have hanging in my pantry. Everyone gets a section to store all of those papers that come through the house, such as permission slips, sign up sheets etc. This works wonders and keeps the clutter off of the kitchen counter.
Have you found a great way to keep it all flowing smoothly? If so please share, I love a good idea!
Here is my filing system in the pantry. My husband and I have the top one and my kids have the bottom two. All of their school and activity papers go right in, I love it!


  1. I really need something like that...I stay somewhat organized but I can never seem to get a handle on all of the paperwork that comes through this house.
    And I agree...I never feel like I have enough time to get everything done!

  2. I have found that this works well for us, especially w/2 in school now.
    Thanks for reading!
