Day 2596 – Splurging On Post It Notes And Actually Printing Your Photos

I absolutely adore office supplies. Back to school is a very dangerous time for me. All of those supplies on sale and some things for a penny! Ah! I have to avoid the stores sometimes.

Yesterday, I realized I only had one color in my 3×3 post it note supply. My friends, this is no good. I’ve come to realize that it does make a difference in the type and color of your post it notes. I’ve gotten generic and budget friendly post it notes (and other office supplies too) and they just fail me. They tend to be flimsy and don’t stick.

I have no shame in admitting I spent a good 10 minutes looking at post it notes. I contemplated deep questions like – “will these colors make me happy?” “Will I work harder with these colors?”

I ended up with these 5 beautiful colors. 🙂


Another thing I did recently, was actually print a photo from our trip. Yes, that’s right, I printed a photo less than a month after it was taken! I love being able to look up from my desk and see it. Dudes, this sucker is a foot by 4 feet!


Day 1941 – How I Stay Organized When There Is A Ton Going On

My goodness, I have a bunch going on right now! Being Bret’s secretary, running my photography business, helping my mom out around the house, personal projects, writing a book and tasks for a new long term client.

So what’s a girl to do? Why use the huge white board above her desk as a post it noter’s dream!

Viola! What I love about this method is I can move things around easily. I still have a printed to-do list but it’s slowly being replaced…..what can I say, I’m old school. 🙂
