Organize your Rewards Cards

I found this really simple, organized, fun app for the android phone. I love to share, so here you go... This app organizes your rewards or points cards from your favorite stores. Just search 'Key Ring' in the Droid Market. Start by downloading and then opening the app. Then click add card and place the scanner bar window on your phone over the bar code on your rewards card. This is extremely easy and user friendly! Once you scan your cards, you can view them by clicking the 'cards' icon. They are then listed in alphabetical order for easy access. You then click the card you would like, and it will pull up a scan bar code with your rewards number. The store just scans or enters the number in the register, and you are on your way! The really nice feature was that I was able to locate all my stores on the app, except for one of my grocery stores. This app helps save you from your wallet being so thick, misplacing a card, or forgetting a card. Have fun being organized!

Love me some Sharpies!

Well, I had some fun last night. For kicks and giggles I decided to utilize my Sharpie Paint Pens and paint a pill bottle. I thought these cute things had to have some sort of re-use. So, I painted one and decorated it with some cute scrapbook paper. Not certain what I will put in this as of yet, but would be great for paperclips, thumbtacks, etc. Anyway, I wanted to mention how much I love my paint pens. If you have not used these, you will love them! We have had ours for over a year and a half now, and they still work great! We have used them to decorate pumpkins, homemade metal signs, school projects on wood, my boys even decided to give there tennis shoes a new look, and paint them (yep, mom was at work). These are very easy to use, just shake the pen, press a bit to get it working, and start painting (just like coloring). I purchased our paint pens at Hobby Lobby and used the 40% off coupon on them. Great buy!

My latest project is working on organizing binders. Yep, I said organizing them. Who in their right mind needs to organize a binder? That would be me! My first binder is to keep me on task at home, and my second binder is recipes. Oh, how I love the pretty colored tabs and labels in all of them. Stay tuned to see some pictures soon.In the meantime, check out the link for the organizing link party. They have a new blog/home featured every day this week.

Feeling Refreshed

Thought I would take a moment to post about how refreshed I have felt this week. I feel as though this has been a great week for me. I have not felt stressed, even though I have been busy every day and every night this week. Aside from work, school and doctor appointments, I had time to get on the treadmill, make meals for my family - including grilling out in the nice weather, did some organizing (have I mentioned how addicted I am to this organizing site....Iheartorganizing)? Yep, it keeps me up late at night, but I always find such great ideas from her, that I am excited to incorporate them right away. I also feel fulfilled with my sign language class. I really feel like God is telling me to take that path to really learn to sign proficiently. There is such a great need for sign language interpretation in the health care field, that I feel it would be a very personally rewarding path to take. Well, thanks for listening! Think it is time to read a bit, then early bedtime...for once. ;-)

Lost Password

Well, it has been a bit since I posted. That is because I couldn't figure out my password. lol. I write all of my passwords down in a book, and guess what? I forgot to write this one down. So, it took me a bit to figure things out. But, I am back. Wanted to share a blog that I found this week, and I love it! It is all about organizing. And if you know me, I love to have things organized, and would love to have more organized, if I could afford it. lol. You have to check out this blog though, as she has so many neat, fun, colorful and exciting ideas! Here is her blog:   Enjoy!
