March Challenge ...

This year, 2011, is my year for getting organized.  One of the things on my list was making a Household Binder.  A binder that contains all kinds of information that we need on a daily, weekly and/or monthly basis. 

One of my favorite blogs - iHeart Organizing - is doing a March Challenge.  Guess what it is?  To get a binder done.  Now .. here we go.  I am up for the challenge.  There are several that I want to work on for this month and look forward to getting it done.  Jen .. is great at getting things organized.  Of how I wish she could come to my house.  She is also offering her templates FREE for the month of March ONLY!!  Go check it out .....
