Good question! I think I’m at a point that I need a basket whose purpose is to tell what I need to organize! My ideal organizer would definitely not be computer based. It would have to be pretty, portable and completely customized to my needs. I’ve been mulling over why this may be the case. Are there other store-related coupons that you’ve got lying around, that you might be able to use in a competitor’s place of business?
(I hate using planners that have portions that I don’t use, I feel wasteful!) Menu planning would be essential, meal somehow tied to seasonal produce and current sales in my area (hey-you said ideal!) with a variety of meals that tasted different but could use same ingredients, i.e. using celery in different ways, versus buying it for one meal and wasting the other 10 stalks. A room by room breakdown of daily, weekly and quarterly cleaning jobs and birthday reminders. Daily or weekly bible verses to memorize/reflect on would be a definite must. My girls aren’t old enough to have scheduled activities, but a daily idea list of creative things to do with a 1 and 3 year old would be great. Garden advice and timelines for my zone would also be helpful. Oh, and (new) tips to keep things interesting and exciting between my husband and I..
I’d love something that I could plug in two ingredients and it would spit out menus. GOOD menus that can be made with things I might actually have. Also, something to keep me off the internet every spare moment would be nice too .
I would love something web-based, with option to print out lists for checking off things. I like have a list of what needs to be done each day. I would also like to have the stuff that doesn’t need to be done daily or even weekly listed. For example, one day a month would have change ac filters. One day every three months would have check batteries in fire alarms. That type of thing. I love being able to check stuff off, makes me feel like I have accomplished things for the day.
I work at home, online and I am busier at the beginning of the month so I need to get my system timed to where I do the heaviest stuff at the end of the month.
Hi, Right now I am on a kick -out -any -stress -do -what -you -can life because I have already had a few major breakdowns from my unfortunate marriage, etc. So I don’t take kindly to living up to timetables although they would probably be good for me. What seems to benefit me right now are all the gentle and forceful reminders from other bloggers about make home happy and clean. Thanks for your gentle ones. Cherrie
Mine would be similar to Julie D’s and Erin’s. One thing mine would have to be, that I don’t think anyone has mentioned yet, is pretty. Is that goofy to say? I am so much a creative type, that I would love something with different cool fonts, instead of just arial/tnr maybe with little graphic touches here & there. Something that would inspire me. I really like the feel of something tangible & portable like paper & pen, which is what I use now. I dig your “daily docket” & plan to customize it for me. I need a monthly at a glance calendar & a daily task list. Right now, everything is separated, so something that combines everything would be great. I don’t know if this is too specific or not, but I’d love something where the printables would be 1/2 sheet sized for the portability factor.
