"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

"Help For the Home" Harvest of Ideas

Here's another tip I have gotten-not sure where I heard it first......but THIS one is essential.

Here is one example of part of a closet in my house now:
(I know the sticky-notes are un-readable--unless you click on the photo!)
This helps EVERYONE in the house know where "away" is for EVERY article-
without having to ask you!!
Now......how about the "littles" in your house?
For them, I had Ana draw simple pics to go on the labels-
along with the word-so now, even babies know what their drawers are for!!!
Don't forget to leave me a comment with YOUR ideas......& I'll link YOUR blog!!!
Thanks, Tina!

To add onto your idea...it's something I've done for years in my preschool classroom. Take a picture of what in the bin or on the shelf. Put it in a word document, write the name of it underneath (so the littles start to recognize letters), cover it with contact paper and stick it on there. It holds up longer.

Oooohhh........contact paper-never thought of that!!

I do have pictures/words taped on with packing tape-but you're right-for the kids, the contact paper would wold up better.

Oh.....& I used sticky notes because I wanted to be able to change the labels easily in that particular area......but that's the nice thing about organizing-you use what works-for you! :)
