Lately I have been having the urge to organize things into binders. There are so many pretty binder colors and designs, it makes it exciting and fun to organize. (And for those of us who are a bit OCD, it just gives us a reason to shop for cute binders). Plus, all of your important information is right at your fingertips. For instance, I organized a simple Menu binder of our favorite take-out food restaurants. I received the cute idea from skiptomylou.org. She is so kind, that she offers a free download of her template, just stop by and visit her page.
When thinking of how this binder would accommodate my family, I decided to adapt my main page to list the restaurant name, the hours they are open, or when they close, and the contact phone number. I placed the menus into a clear page protector and placed a nice bright color paper behind each menu, just to make it appealing to my eyes. As I receive coupons for the restaurants, I can place them adjacent to the menus. I love having all of this information in one place. Believe me, our 'junk' drawer made it a bit difficult to locate all of this information previously. And yes, I do happen to have a junk drawer. Guess I need to work on organizing that too! Maybe I could rename it 'the organized drawer'. Oh, I could have fun with my hubby on that one. "Yes honey, we have a tape measure...it is in the organized drawer." Where would he ever begin to look!?
Well, here is a peak at my take-out menu binder. Thanks again to skiptomylou.org for the cute idea and cover sheet. Now, it is nicely kept together in the binder, and adorns my office bookshelf.
