Shannon from Rocks In My Dryer has started a fun Wednesday tradition--sharing an idea that "works for you." Here's one I used yesterday while my son played outside. Since buying this greeting card organizer, I never miss a date. It's simply a book with a pocket for each month's special cards and a few pages of addresses in the back. I pick up 10-cent cards at thrift stores all year long and insert them in the appropriate pockets. I never have to hunt for a calendar or a card. It's like the pantry principle for stationery!
One more: I am so bad about forgetting snacks and drinks for car errands. When my mom brought us a case of bottled waters, I didn't want to put them in the refrigerator. I knew everyone would drink them instead of filtered water in a glass. Instead, I threw them in this basket in the carport. Now they're easy to grab for a walk or a drive, even after the house is locked.
