Mommy White Board Project

This blog is almost entirely about the games and activities I organize for my children, but very rarely do we as caregivers remember to do something for ourselves. I’ve been wanting a better organizational system for a while (right now I scribble everything on post-its!), but it always felt too indulgent to purchase a big wall planner. Well, it was time to change that! I draw so much inspiration from the fabulous mom behind Hands on as We Grow, so when I saw she had put together this white board system for herself, I knew it was worth the splurge.

I purchased a wall organizer that is half white board and half cork board. You can get super-crafty and hot glue on fabric, or further subdivide the planner with ribbon or buttons. Not being nearly that artistic, I simply dressed mine up a bit with strips of washi tape and then used hot glue to add decorative buttons in a few corners.

I love that I can wipe off every item of my To Do list now, and I blocked out sections of the white board for our daily schedule, chores, and work-related items.

The cork side is for pinning up current project or recipe ideas, or school-related notices for the kids.

Perhaps the best part is that this board is going to save me so much paper in the long run, making it environmentally-friendly, too! No more loose pieces of paper stuck under too many magnets on the fridge.
