My Own Shop

I've had my account on etsy for probably almost 4 years. Wow, hard for me to believe! My aunt is REAL big into crafting and has made quite the success doing so. At one point she had up to 4 shops going at once. I went to stay with her for a few weeks to help her move and she got me into making Ear Cuffs and helped me set up my first site.

It was great!

I was still in school, didn't have a job, was only 17 and I was able to buy everyone Christmas gifts with the money I earned via my shop.

I managed to keep it going for 2 years and then life got too busy for me to keep up with the restock of packages and supplies for the store not to mention getting to the post office in a timely fashion. So I put the shop to bed, didn't delete it, and let it rest until I found the time.

Which was about a few days ago.

My boyfriend and I are about to move soon and we have tons of plans in the works after we move into a less expensive home. A 2nd car to buy, getting me back into college, and lord knows what else we will need so I started it back up in hopes of bringing in more side cash.

Getting Your Ducks in a Row

Now I don't have one of those beautifully scrap-booked binders or an office that is more pretty than a mess like you see on other blogs sites. Maybe I will after a few weeks of this, but i'm not making any promises!
When I moved out one of the first things I did was get all my bills in one place. I made myself a folder where I stashed all my bills, paycheck stubs, receipts, and my renting contract on my apartment.
Now looking back, did I really need every single receipt ever handed to me? No.

I got all of my pages that I use from Here, Here, and Here. (To get the monthly and yearly spread sheets just Email Coordinated Kate and she sends them to you for free). Like when I was choosing recipes for Freezer Meals, I never settle. I take what I like from all kinds of sources and make something that fits me best.

I'll be continuously sharing pages I find that seem to work with my life style as I find time to do so!
For now share with me pages you use to help keep your life organized!
