Organizing for the New Year

Twenty fifteen here I come! Can you believe another year has come and gone?! The older I get, the faster the years fly by and there's no stopping it.

I have always loved being organized-at school and at home. My classroom has a place for everything and everything in it's place. The kids know it, my fellow teachers know it, everyone knows it :) I'm also organized at home, but I like to come up with new organizational goodies all the time.

So just in time for the new year, I've made a Command Center. At first I thought it might be weird since I don't have kids or fifty-million schedules to keep track of, but then I thought, who cares. I like being organized and I like having a clear, visual representation of that. A few weeks ago I was browsing through my new fav blog I Heart Organizing, and came across her post for a command center, but it was from another blog...How to Nest for Less. She offers a cool calendar for free download. So I downloaded it, took it to Office Depot and they enlarged it to 22x28" for me. Then I bought the frame she linked to, and viola.

Here's the calendar you can download for free at her site:
Then, one you put it in the frame, you can use expo markers to write on it! So cool :)

I'm sure most of you already have this, or something like it, but I added the folder to the wall and love it :)

So here is my finished product:

I got the box I attached to the wall at Target, as well as the cool sticker labels that I put on the different sections of the box :)

I think being organized is a great way to start the year off stress-free. Good luck organizing!!! :)

Happy New Year!
