One of the things I struggle with in terms of staying organized is remembering where I put that great 40% off coupon. Or finding the receipt I need to return something that didn't fit.
Here is my solution. This bag hangs in our mud room by the back door. So, when I am heading out to run my errands, trying to balance Camden's sippy cup, diaper bag, purse, coffee (a neccesity), I don't have to coral all the things I need to check off my items on my to do list because they are right there in my bag.
In the front pocket, I stash coupons...
The body of the bag is reserved for items I need to return. Like this lid for a container I bought that I didn't realize had a big crack in it until I got home.
And the bathing suit I bought for Jonah that swallowed him whole. (Gotta get some meat on that boy.)
So, as I'm running out of the house, arms loaded, paperless list at the ready, I don't even have to think about rounding up returns or searching through stacks for a coupon. I have my bag all packed and ready to go.
I LOVE time savers. Do you?
I also love when I finally follow through with a promise I made to myself! Three momsanity workouts DONE this week. Thank you Debbie, Kate, and Emily, for being so encouraging in your workout videos. I feel more muscular and confident already! Here's what I did this week...
Saturday--June 20 minute full body workout--gotta love the wall sits at the end :-(
Wednesday--June 10 minute heavy lower body workout and hill sprints
Thursday-- 1 hour walk and June 10 minute heavy arms
I noticed that with just the one to two workouts I was getting in per week I was building muscles I have never had before in my arms and abs, so if I can hit my goal of three workouts, I should really see some results! Excited!!!
