I really like to plan things out and have things organized. Working and living in a construction zone doesn’t allow much organizing, so I try to insert it in crazy ways where I can.
I am a planner. When we went on our 3 month road trip I had a binder where I kept all of our tickets, resources, a calendar of things we needed to get to, etc. I am the organizer for family events. I planned our 5 year anniversary road trip just a FEW months in advance. When I was in high school my friends called me Monica (from Friends).
So you get it. I am a crazy organizer/planner.
Chris and I both keep schedules of what’s going on both on our own and together. The problem is we’ve keep those lists separate so I always have to make sure to write my stuff on Chris’ calendar so he knows what I’ve got going on, and him on mine.
But then I got a GREAT idea for what should go on this big blank wall in the kitchen
We had bought a sheet of white board from Home Depot a while ago, so we cut down the leftover sheet to my planned size…
Drywall squares are great for cutting and hanging drywall, but they also come in handy for drawing out hundreds of 1″ x 1 1/4″ squares
First I spread out some contact cement (VERY carefully)
And now it sits happily on the wall for me to plan and dry erase away!
