Cleaning and Organization Printables

Allison from A Glimpse Inside here again and it is the final Must Have Craft Tip and More post of 2016!! Where has this year gone?! 
 
 The beginning of a new year is a great time to start a new routine and get better organized in all aspects in your life. You can search and easily find any sort of printable to help you organize your life in one way or the other.
Today, I am going to focus on and share with you some awesome cleaning and organizational printables that will help you get 2017 off to the right start.

 

Cleaning your house is always a daunting task if you don’t stay on top of it. 
I’ve gathered some printables that will help you stay on top of your house, keep you on track, and relieve a little bit of stress in your life. 
 
I love this little Reusable Cleaning List from Craftaholics Anonymous. It is small and portable and will keep you on track over and over again without having to print out more sheets. 
 
 If you clean a little bit every day it can keep you on track but just in case you don’t have time to do that, use the weekly schedule to stay on top of your cleaning.

I love that this printable from Freebie Finding Mom and the fact that it gives you tasks to do everyday and also breaks it down by day of the week tasks. It is easy to read and and breaks it down by rooms so you aren’t overwhelmed by tackling multiple spaces at once.

 Get your kids involved by creating a easy to follow chore chart for them to to daily or weekly tasks.
This Chore Chart from Go Grow Go is perfect to get your kids in on the cleaning too.

 So you tend to clean weekly but need help on keeping up with the monthly, quarterly or items you clean annually. These Cleaning Checklists from Homeschoolin’ Mama will do just that for you. 
 
 Keep all the laundry in check with this Laundry Chart from I Should be Mopping the Floor.
It is also perfect if you have teenagers in your house and you want to start to teach them how to properly wash and dry their own clothes.
 

So you have all these printables to keep you on track with your cleaning schedule but now you have all these papers making a mess and you need to keep track of. How about creating a Cleaning Binder like this one from Clean and Sensible to keep all those papers in one place?

 

Want to give your house a good top to bottom cleaning but not sure where to start? Use this 31 Day Cleaning Schedule from Fresh and Organized  to work your way through your house and hit zones you may not think about when doing normal everyday cleaning.

Now that you’ve gotten on a good cleaning schedule, let’s talk about ways to declutter and organize the items left in your home.

Start by decluttering your entire house one room at a time. This printable checklist from While He was Napping for Ask Anna will help you work through your whole house and declutter and clean as you go.

Want to organize your home or life better but just don’t have a lot of time to tackle it all at once? Follow this 52 Week Schedule fro Home Storage Solutions to work at it one week at a time through the whole year.

What if you REALLY want to declutter and get serious about what actually stays in your home?
Be sure to print out this printable checklist from Making Lemonade using the Konmari Method.

And now that your house is decluttered, let’s use labels to stay organized.

If you have young kids, print out these Toy Bin Labels from Teaching Mama to teach your young ones how to properly clean up and stay organized.

Do you create your own cleaning products? Print these Cleaning Labels from The Handmade Home to keep everything properly labeled and uniformed looking.

Get that pantry organized with these beautiful editable Farmhouse Pantry Labels from World Label.

And lastly, keep all those storage bins labeled by using these Printable Labels from In My Own Style. Mark them with what’s inside and you don’t have to rummage through each bin to figure out what’s inside.

One more item that will help organize all aspects of your life and home.

This checklist from Home Storage Solutions has everything from Grocery Shopping Lists, Inventory Lists, Contact Information, and much, much more.

I hope that some of these printables come in handy for you in the New Year! Also, we hope that you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We’ll see you in 2017 with all new tips!

Free Christmas Gift List Printables

Hello! It’s Bev here for our Must Have Craft Tips post – and we’re working on organization this month! One of the areas I really need to work on in December is gift tracking. I have the hardest time remembering what I’ve given from one year to the next!

If you’re in the same boat – I have some great tips this week for organizing and keeping track of gifts!

1 – Organize who you are buying for. It’s tough to shop and find the right thing if you don’t go in with a list of recipients. It’s so easy to get caught up in the fun of buying, and forget to get something for everyone on your list! Don’t forget to mark off when they are wrapped too!

2 – Make it easy to take your list with you! Finding cute gift lists to fit in your planner is a great way to keep track of what you’ve bought so you don’t repeat gifts, or overbuy either! It’s also a great way to make sure you don’t lose the list! :)

3 – Don’t forget stocking stuffers! (something I always leave until the last minute!) If you’ve got a handy printable you can check items off as your out shopping and get it finished early.

4 – Stay on budget! Keeping track of what you’re buying lets you know when you’ve reached the budget for each person.

5 – Don’t lose those online orders. With all the online shopping we do, it’s sometimes tricky to keep track of what we’ve ordered, and from where! This handy printable gives you a place to keep track of what you’ve ordered and when it’s arriving!

6 – Don’t forget about Handmade Gifts! These cute printables keep gift ideas handy and give you a spot for listing supplies you need too!

7 – Find just the right gift! If you’re not sure what to buy, this cute little Gift Wish list is a great way to get ideas! I love that it’s more than just a list of things they want, it’s a great way to get to know their likes and activities, so you can really get creative!

8 – Don’t forget to say Thanks! This Christmas Gift Received List is a great way to keep track of who received what, and if you’ve sent out thank you notes! This is especially great if you have big families opening gifts all at once. It can be a little tough to remember who gave what!

I hope these lists help you organize your gift buying and budget! I know they’re going to be a big help to me!

Hi everyone! Michele from The Scrap Shoppe here with a new theme for our crafty series for December.

I even have a blank (free) December calendar printable that you can use for keeping December straight, marking holiday parties, when and where to gift shop, or even to keep up with the antics of your Elf on the Shelf (which is what I use it for).

Marvel Lunch Box Notes

Are you back in the swing of things packing lunches for the kids? Although we homeschool, we are often on the go and therefore pack lunches and snacks to take along with us. Now that we are approaching fall, we love having picnic lunches outside in the cool weather too. I love sticking little surprises in my daughter’s lunch like handwritten love notes, jokes, fun facts, etc. Since she loves superheros, I decided to make Marvel Lunch Box Notes to attach to the new MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars.

Marvel Lunch Box Notes1

So fun, right?! I was shopping the grocery section of Target the other day and spotted the new MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars. Since we are a superhero loving family, I thought it would be fun to add these to lunches or have as an afternoon snack. So I whipped up these fun lunch box notes to go with them. I love the way they turned out, so I thought I’d share them here on the blog with y’all.

Ready to make lunch a little more super? All you need is… a box of the new MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars, the free Marvel Lunch Box Notes printable, scissors, and washi tape or baker’s twine. You can print the lunch box notes HERE for personal use only.

marvel lunch box notes4

After you print off the Marvel Lunch Box Notes, simply cut them out with your scissors and attach them to the MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars with washi tape or baker’s twine. You can even go a little further and grab a package of Marvel napkins from the party section at Target to include in the lunches too.

marvel lunch box notes2

I totally get the Hulk, don’t you? You wouldn’t like me when I’m hangry. Just ask my husband. LOL!

I really love the graphics on the wrappers of the MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars. They remind me of the original illustrations from the comics.

marvel lunch box notes5

My daughter noticed that there’s even Super Hero Trivia and collectible Super Hero Cards on the back of the MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars box. So far we have The Amazing Spider-Man card and my daughter can’t wait to collect the other 3. Next time you run into Target to buy all the things, be sure to snag the new MARVEL Chewy Granola Bars and print yourself off some lunch box notes to go with them.

Who is your favorite super hero and how do you make lunchtime SUPER for your kids?

 

Printable Grocery List for Kids

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #AHugeSale #CollectiveBias #Safeway

With back to school season upon us, we are busy prepping for the year. I’m sure most of you are doing the very same. With organizing the home and doing the school supply shopping also comes grocery shopping. It’s important to stock up on those healthy snacks, foods, and drinks so that you are prepared to start the school year off right. The grocery store can often be a dreaded chore, especially with children in tow. I’ve found that involving them in the grocery store process can not only be fun for them, but can help momma’s sanity while trying to conquer a packed grocery store with ‘bored’ kids.  Enter in… this Printable Grocery List for Kids.

kids grocery list1

I made this simple grocery list right on the computer, printed it out on card stock and laminated it for durability (that baby gets thrown into my purse) and for multiple uses (pair it with a dry erase marker).

kids grocery list2

The list I made is pretty generic, but you could easily make lists for your kids to fit their ages and your needs. I used pictures/clipart of the items to make the cuter, but picture clues are also great for beginning readers. For your older kiddos, you can actually have them write the list at home before heading to the grocery store. For multiple kids, consider giving them different lists so that they each have their own responsibilities, which helps to avoid arguments. 

kids grocery list3

Not only does the list keep the kids busy, but it gets them involved in the process and teaches them an important life skill. And while the kids are busy with their lists, you are able to focus on those awesome deals to save you some money. We were able to shop Safeway’s Huge Anniversary sale and took advantage of the BOGO Steak Sale and stocked up on Life (Buy 4 save $2) and Gatorade ($0.58 when you buy 12)! Love a good deal!

kids grocery list4

And since I had a helper with me rather than a hungry, bored kid, our shopping experience was fun, educational, and went by quickly. You can easily download the grocery list I made so that you can print one off for the kids to use on your next trip to the grocery store. Slips right into your purse or grocery bag!

I shopped Safeway’s HUGE Anniversary sale, but you can be sure to check out what great deals are available at Albertsons, Vons, Osco, or Amigos too!

Safeway is my go to grocery store. Shop the HUGE Anniversary sale and stock up on your favorite brands 7/29-8/11. I’d love to hear how your family stock up for the school year!

 

Bloom Print

Hey guys! I’m Kelsey from Tattered and Inked and I have the pleasure of popping in each month to share a fun & free new printable for all your lovelies!
 
I seriously can’t believe we are already in the month of May…which means summer is peeking right around the corner!!! That makes this girl incredibly happy! I’m pretty sure the beautiful, sunny weather that has finally pulled through and all the beautiful flowers and sunsets have inspired the print this month. I wanted something fun & colorful and the little saying ‘bloom where you are planted’ just popped into my head when thinking of new designs. Don’t you just love this Bloom Print?
 
 
We are trying very hard to teach our kids this very concept…to shine and blossom wherever they are, no matter the circumstances. So it’s a great reminder to have around our house lately!!
 
It comes in several fun color schemes so hopefully one catches your eye and brings a fun splash of color into your home for this last little bit of spring! Click your favorite below, download it & then print. 
 
 
Quick tips for printing in case you’re a newbie…
 
1. Click the download link below for the print you’d like to get. Then follow the prompts to download and save to your computer. 
2. Print your printable as you would any regular picture. I like to print them on white cardstock or picture paper- they tend to print better and with more vibrant colors this way. 
3. These prints are sized to be printed as large as 8×10 and will look best printed as a 5×7 or 8×10 size. 
 
That’s pretty much all there is to it. So get at it…just click. print. frame!!

Cinderella Spring Prints

Hello friends!!
It’s Kelsey from Tattered and Inked again!! I have such a fun printable for you guys today and it was inspired by my most recent girl’s night out date with my little girl. We had a rare night out and were able to see the new Cinderella movie & LOVED it. It was exactly how the classic fairy tale should be and there were so many beautiful dresses, and shoes and music!! Of course, the fact that Frozen Fever was on before Cinderella was a huge hit too. 
 
When sitting down to create a spring print, I couldn’t get Cinderella out of my head…and here we are. Two spring-filled, gorgeous prints with the sentiment that Cinderella’s mother left with her daughter. To have courage and be kind. Such a great message! So I created these Cinderella Spring Prints!
 
 
Don’t they just burst with all things spring?? With a touch of Cinderella blue of course!!
 
There are two different designs to choose from below so to get your free print, find the link below & click to download.

Shamrock Math for Kids

Hi Makers! Michelle here from Delicate Construction and I am back to share a quick and easy math idea with some free printables just in time for some St. Patrick’s Day fun! Check out this hands-on math idea- Shamrock Math for Kids! These 2 math activities and printables are perfect for kids preschool-2nd grade. 
 
 
I love when I am at the store and I am able to find fun holiday stickers and such on sale or clearance because I know that if I have them, math is much more fun and interesting for my daughter. That is why I had to have these fun St. Patty’s stickers from Joann!
 

I know that my preschooler is starting to become interested and working on addition and patterns so I made a couple of printables for her to practice! I love making printables and sharing them with all of you!

For the patterns printable, I started most of the first pattern for her, and then allowed her to finish it. If your child is older (1st-2nd grade) they can make their own patterns using the stickers.

 
My preschooler got a kick out of this pattern activity which means I may have to make some longer rows so we can work on more challenging patterns! We worked on the ABAB pattern, but older children can definitely explore other patterns. 
 
 

The addition printable was also a great opportunity to not only count and add but work on writing the numbers as well. I would model the first addition sentence for my preschooler, then allow her to complete the second one on her own. You can laminate this printable so and have your child use a dry erase marker so that you can get multiple uses out of it!

 
In the end I accomplished exactly what I wanted. We had fun working on some math concepts, but she was engaged and actively learning the whole time. If you don’t have stickers, I thought that it would also be fun to get some Lucky Charms or other cereal to go along with this theme as well- then it is snack too!

These two printables can be downloaded for personal use- Addition is HERE and Patterns is HERE. And for other holidays, bust out some themed stickers/foamies to continue to use these prints. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
