Filing Cabinet Frenzy

So in my mad sorting out of the office thought I'd better tackle the filing cabinet. I've not sorted through it since we moved here so it seemed a good idea. Hours of sorting and piles of recycling later and I finally have it more organised than it's ever been! 

Check this out!

New paperchase range....

Passed through Birmingham today and went to check out Paperchase cos it's so much bigger than the ones in Brizzle. Very excited to find that they've launched an A5 range, good quality and amazing prices compared to the Filofax A5 ones. I really hope they extend their range!

Here are the 2 they have produced so far...

Designing a Homebinder

Been reading lots of blogs on time management and home upkeep etc and have decided I need a homebinder to try and stay on top of things a bit more. I'm finding it all a bit overwhelming at the mo to know what to include and what not to include. There's loads of printables available too. 

The first question was what to hold it in. On another wander round staples I picked up another Martha Stewart folder so I now have 2. One will be a homebinder the other will be for monthly finances. 

I love these colours! My aqua finsbury goes so nicely with them! :) 

I've discovered Flylady on my travels, she's got lots of good things to say. Check her out here:

Once I've finished setting them up I'll do a review of them!

A creative whim

This morning as I was cleaning the kitchen and sorting through the recycling a lightbulb went on above my head and an idea was born. I've been looking at desktidy's but haven't seen one that I like. I just played with the boxes till I got them in an order that I liked, stuck some pretty paper on them and voilĂ  I have a desktidy that's unique and does exactly what I want!

Here are all the boxes covered in pretty paper ... and then below is the complete set up!

I love it, everything is handy and just where I want it! Plus I quite enjoyed being creative for an hour :)
