Be sure to click on the link below to purchase your own copy!
I am SO excited to introduce this extremely helpful Organizer for your Home to you! It is written by one of my dear friends, Dianna Overholt who lives right here in the Ozarks with us. Imagine my surprise when I happened to run into her at the local store only to have her show me her newest book! To be honest, I have never seen a better, more thorough organizer ever in my life. She has thought of everything and more to include in this. I just know you are going to LOVE it! (I have to warn you, that my camera is not cooperating and I'm currently in the market for a new one, so please forgive the poor quality of the pictures. They do not do this organizer justice.)
Now the REALLY fun part, I will be giving one of these away! You have many different ways to enter (see below) and the winner will be chosen at noon (CST) next Monday the 17th, 2012. Also below, I will include where you can go ahead and order yourself one or two or three! Talk about great Christmas gifts, you can simply call and order as many as you'd like today!
To begin with, it has a beautifully printed cover and clearly labeled tabs for you to find your spot which makes it very easy to use. One of my favorite details is that she has shared her heart on homemaking issues throughout the organizer and added beautiful scriptures for encouragement too.
The very first section is your calendar that is given to you by weeks and a full month view.
After your calendar pages Dianna has included some extra pages for things that need to be remembered in 2014 according to month, and an extra special section to help schedule your days, AND some pullout note sections to carry a quick list with you for reminders.
The next section is for all things regarding Home Foods. For example, keeping track of your family's favorite meals and menu plans.
One of the things I have trouble remembering, is what is in our deep freezer. Dianna has solved this problem for me with her Freezer Food pages that allow me to take an inventory of what is in there by writing down the date of the inventory, the name of the item and a way to keep track of how many are used. This is great for all of your frozen produce, meat and everything you put in there. There are similar pages to keep track of all your canned foods too. This has been a life saver for me to keep track of everything we canned this season.
Also under the Home Foods tab, you will find a Gardening section complete with a Gardening Layout, a Planting Journal, and a Harvest/Preservation Record which allows you to keep track of what you have harvested, how many pints, quarts etc., the date harvested, special notes, and totals! This allows you to record details to refer to year after year to enable you to improve each year or simply to remember how well your garden did!
The next tab is for Cleaning. This has a wonderful section of cleaning charts for deep cleaning a little at a time with Dianna's wonderful advice on how to use them with her easy method.
Dianna has also included several Hospitality Checklist sheets for your quick to do lists when company is coming. What a helpful thing to have when you think of all those little things you are trying to remember to do before your company is ringing your door bell!
Next is the Clothing section. I can't say enough good things about this section and you will see for yourself why. It begins with a chart to keep track of sizes for everyone in your family.
Then you will have a page dedicated to Infant and Toddler Clothing.
Next are different sections for both Girls and Boys Clothing Sizes and lists of types of clothing.
There are even more pages to record Adult Clothing items, a page for listing Clothing Needs, another page for your Sewing Project ideas and places to list what the project needs! So much in one Organizer!
The next section is for Inspiration, what a blessed section this is! Here you can keep track of your scripture reading, scripture memorization, books you're reading, prayer lists, gift ideas, the cute remark your toddler just made, and especially what you appreciate about your husband!
And just when you begin to think there can't be anything else included in this Organizer, Dianna adds an Odds and Ends section. There are pages to keep track of your Storage bins and boxes and......
There is also a page for Important Family Information to keep track of everyone in your family's Social Security #, their Allergies and Medications, and even their Blood Type.
This next page is a great help for me, it allows you to keep track of your Bank Accounts, Insurance Plans, and Credit Cards. I can never remember our Insurance information!
There is a Travel section too, that includes lists for your Travel Planning and Trip Packing Lists and the final section is for Contact Information. A place for you to write down names, numbers and addresses the way we used to before cell phones. I really appreciate having this list for Christmas cards and to remember those that we don't communicate with that often, but are glad to be able to connect with them when we can!
Ready? Here's the fun part!
