Cheap Organization

I'll admit it...I'm cheap! And there is nothing I love more than cheap organization and home decor. (Ok, I do love my dear hubby and children more, but I wouldn't call them cheap. ha!) And what I mean by cheap is finding nice products at nice prices (on sale, clearance, etc). Therefore, the end caps of the aisles at Target are some of my favorite shopping spots.

Let me introduce to you my most recent cheap organization find.

It's a dry erase weekly magnetic calendar...and it was on clearance for $3.99! Now I can remember important school items, significant dates, big games, plans with friends, etc. (Ok...let's be honest, it's more to remind my dear hubby. But with my pregnancy brain these days I can use the help as well.)

What are some of your favorite cheap home organization finds?

That is a great find Jessi!! If you meal plan for the week you can add what your dinner each night is right on that! I am ready to buy a few small corkboards and cover them with cool fabric. I can't seem to find a good way to store paperwork for each of that we need in the near future. I saw something in a magazine with a corkboard for each family member. I might do one for the adults and one for the kids for now.

Meggan--I was thinking of going back for another one just to meal plan on. We think alike! And I love the idea of fabric covered cork boards. I must find a place in the house to do this.

I have one of those, sort of ... it's blank, but I write the days of the week on it and write important things I need to remember each day that week. Like who needs a lunch packed and where soccer practice is. Love it!

I love cheap Target deals! Fabulous find! I need some organizational reminders myself. I have "four kids have killed all my brain cells" illness and I can't remember squat!
