The first days of the new month, are my favorite! Since I’m such a list girl, I like to sit down and plan my month. Not day by day, but just look at the calendar and see what is going on during that month and how it’s going to affect us. Some things that I look ahead too are:
- Birthdays – Making cards, buying presents, planning birthday surprises
- Bills – ew.
- Appointments for the family – Dr, Dentist
- Get togethers
I also create to-do lists of chores or things that I want to get done.
- Big House cleaning
- Stressful things
- Crafty projects
My favorite part, is when the new month is nearing, I get all my fabulous magazines in the mail! I looove them! I justify having so many subscriptions because I save SO much off the cover price. I buy them periodically, not all at once. At the end of the month, I usually tear out my favorite ideas/layouts/room designs and put them in a binder and give the old magazines to the break room at work… it’s a perfect solution and I really hate all the piles of magazines.
This has been a post inspired by Mama Kats workshop, for which I'm thankful because I had nothing to write about.. already. This is going to be a long month..
