Journey to Organization

I've started working on my resolution to get my life organized.
I always have notes everywhere so I decided to start keeping a great daily planner
that would be functional and where I could be creative too.
  
I have boxes of journaling and planner materials but I never seem to 
have the time to be in my craft room to accomplish anything.  
Then I had lightbulb moment.  

Hubby had this old push cart tucked away in our garage.  
It's a great size, has wheels that work great and it's free.


I purchased 2 cans of pink spray paint and today was an awesome 
50 degree January day so I started painting.




TaaDah!!!!
My new mobile planner / journaling center.

 I can roll it anywhere in my house.  
So I can spend time with my family and be creative too.
I love it.  
(hubby says he likes the pink color so much that I can keep it forever)


 The containers are just things I had already so I'm giving them new life.



I love Washi tape and I have this little cubby spot up top for using now and
underneath the cart I added a wood rod just sitting on the little side brackets
for extra tape storage.



My daughter gave me a lovely pink planner for Christmas and now
I'm going to enjoy using it.

I've just barely started to organized my planner/journal
with the topics I want but I will show you my afternoon start up.











I'm going to enjoy my journey to organization.

More to come........

  2. Wow - it's terrific! I love that you repurposed all those boxes. I always tell people "use what you have," especially at first. You can always go back and spend money on containers later (though you probably won't.) I also love that the cart is on wheels. This works so well for crafts, and also for a homework station, a mobile office, or a wrapping station. Most excellent!
