Life is just crazy these days...

I haven't had time to post deals for the last few weeks.  I haven't really shopped because I am crazy stocked up.  I had everything I needed for this entire weeks worth of menu plans and have some of the items for the rest of the month.  I do have to buy things that may not be on sale this month...but I am watching out for the sales...planning ahead can do that for you.

I have been on an organizing kick these days.  I organized my pantry.  I guess I deleted the pictures.  But, here is my stockpile
I'm still working on organizing this you can see, we really don't need cereal for a LONG while.  I think there are almost 40 boxes packed in there.

Then I have been working on our office.  We run a business from our home, so I am forever trying new ways to organize all of our paperwork, etc.  So, here are some pictures of what I have been doing.  This my top desk drawer.

This is the after picture.  I picked these up at the Dollar Store.  They were $1.00 for 3.  Oh, and a little trick I read somewhere out there on the net...sticky tack!!!  It keeps your little baskets from sliding all over the place!  Works fabulously!

This is drawer #2 before picture had bank account information, can't post that.
I had the black organizer and added a couple things.  I may change is as I use it, but for now this is what it looks like.  The empty basket will be used for receipts that I need to enter...out of site yet I know it needs to be done.

This is where we keep our printers.  I have another one on top of this desk.  I added the baskets for paper, notebooks, and file folders.  Thomas is forever looking for things...I hope he can now find them, until I decide to move them again.  LOL

This is hubby's desk area or mine when I want to work on something that requires some space.  I added those cute cork squares.  He was pinning up things to the wall, and I knew he needed something to pin to, so here it is.
Up above is needing work.  Thomas built these cabinets, but hasn't had time to build me shelves.  That is my next project for him.  I NEED them.  I have lots of price books for windows, doors, etc.  I need some space for them.  You can see our large calendar next to this...that thing takes up the entire wall.  It's a business thing.  

I also bought some baskets for my linnen closet.  I keep my stock pile of shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, etc. there and it NEEDS some help.  I need to pick up a few more.  In time things will shape up around here.  

I will add a picture of my desk when I am done with it, but I am still working on it and there are papers on it still.  I swear I have WAYYYYY too many papers.

Then there is the kids is desk city down here.  Another day...
