Get Organized with Smead Office Supplies

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

As Lil Man gets older and more involved in different activities, I'm finding that being organized (for me) is crucial to keep up with everything. And although I use technology a lot to do this, I also find that I still have a paper trail with many things that I need to account for - school forms, medical receipts to file, tax receipts, and the list goes on and on. And although I don't keep every little picture or project that he does in school (ok, so maybe I did last year), I do like to keep his things. And I'm finding that these floating pieces of paper are now scattered everywhere. And it drives me crazy.

So I found a solution. Check out these great products. First up the Step Index Organizer

This organizer is the perfect size. It's big enough to hold receipts or art projects or both. The way that it is divided, I can use it for multiple things yet keep everything separated and organized. I love that I can carry it with me if needed. And if you travel a lot, this could also be stashed in your vehicle to keep track of travel expenses. 

I also have a filing cabinet at home. And I have made use of these FasTab Hanging Erasable folder, as well as the SuperTab Erasable Manila folder  

 And yes, you read that correctly - I said erasable! So if you want to change the label, simple erase it. And the Pentel eraser is a great eraser to use.

And another neat folder is the Vertical File Folder. Instead of filing your papers horizontal, you can file them vertically.

And lately, I'm never too far away from a Sharpie. I just have to make sure I keep them away from Lil Man. But I do believe that I have found a way to keep myself organized. 

You too can stay organized with these great office supplies from

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss
