Since I love paper so much and have been on a search for cute file folders for the past 7 years....I had just picked up some new cute ones at Michael's, 4 for $1 dollar and 3 for 1$ at Target Dollar Spot. I've been thinking about a command center for a little while. I have a couple of projects in process for this in our household, so you will have to get by with just a few pictures of what I completed tonight. I'll post more when I finish the rest of the project. So, I went around my house and gathered everything that I thought could work for a command center like what Toni at abowlfulloflemons.blogspot.com made. Here were my options:
|BEFORE--Selecting my "Command Center." Purse and shoe folders are from Michael's, set of 4 for 1$|
|I decided on this, which doesn't look like much, but it helps the file folders stand upright when I put them in front, like the next picture....|
|DURING--Command Center--Blue/Green/Teal folders from Target 3 for $1|
Ideas (things to consider, build, read, copy, try, etc.)
Teal basket 1$ at Big Lots
Folders 3$ worth
White plastic desk organizer either given to me from my Mother or picked up at a garage sale for less than 1$
Card organizer purchased at 1/2 price books for 1$
Clear snap folder with black trim from Dollar Store 1$ (I put my address labels, stamps and envelopes in it.)
Scissors and Sharpies and pens I had.
List paper 50 cents, after Christmas sale at Gordmans
I think this is going to work pretty well for us. Thanks for making it one of the challenges, Toni!
Ok, so I have had off and on success with posting the little pictures like the one above for the 21 day challenge at A Bowl Full of Lemons. I was able to do it on my second day of blogging and then I have been trying ever since and couldn't get it to work again until now. Am I the only one? I was able to do it this time in the Edit HTML mode, by posting the code. I have tried it this way before though and only get the actual text/code, no link or logo. I don't know, but glad it is working right now!
