Ending the Problem of Disorganized Personal Information

As you might guess, I’m generally a pretty organized person. There is a job chart on the fridge outlining what we expect of our older kids each week, complete with standards and consequences for failing to comply.

A Combo Album Approach to Scrapping My First 10K

10K Pages Closeup

Like many scrapbookers, my approach to memory keeping has changed several times over the years depending upon my current interests, access to resources and availability of time to spend on the activity.
