Home Organization

Happy Friday! I'm so excited to be starting a four day weekend! In those four days, I'm going to attempt to finish up a ton of projects and work on more organizing, cleaning and sorting to prepare for the start of school next week. And, in case you're interested, I thought I'd share with you a little area I've set up at the end of my hallway to help my family stay organized:

The calendar is actually a vinyl piece that I ordered from Etsy. I simply adhered it to a large picture frame that I painted black. The calendar was cut out in reverse so that it can be adhered to the back side of the glass, which means you can write on the front of the glass with a dry erase marker. I love it! It helps to keep us organized at a glance. Just below the calendar is a stainless steel magnetic wall pocket (similar to this one) that I bought on clearance at The Container Store. I added some pretty file folders with the days of the week. Add some magnetic clothespins and you're done!

Do you know what else I'm doing this weekend? I'm decorating for Fall! I know it may seem early for some, but I love this time of year and can't wait any longer to get out the little pumpkins, leaves and the warm colors of Autumn. Okay, now I'm off to do some stamping. Wait, aren't I suppose to be cleaning?!

I love your blog Jennifer! I was wondering if you could share what font you use for the journalling on the photos of your craft room. I've been looking for a nice handwriting font. Thanks!
