Organize Home Office Files (Paper Management!)

Files can be tricky, but they don’t have to be. Replace your old philosophy with a new, improved way of thinking about files.

FIRST LEGO League: Organizing The Junior Kit

We are LEGO fans in our house, which hasn’t always been the case. When my three girls were younger, I didn’t want to stick to the stereotypes, so we loaded up the playroom with LEGO Duplos and Mega Blocks and attempted to initiate building play.
