Family Room Clean Up

My computer desk is in the family room, and lately, I've let it get out of control!  It was truly a mess, and I just keep piling more and more on it!

So, my Jumbo Clip It Up came to the rescue!  If something is in a stack, I forget about it!  Always!  If it's vertical on my Clip It Up, I will see it, remember it, and take care of it!  So, I placed coupons, receipts that I need to keep, sketches that I want to try, paperwork that needs my attention in the next couple of weeks, recipes that I plan to make, items that I need to research on the Internet, etc., all on my Clip It Up!

That's better!  A nice clean desk is wonderful!
I just created my first 12 x 12 page sketch ever!  What do you think!?!  I thought maybe you would want to create with it too!  I created a FUN Halloween layout with my sketch!  I used the awesome My Mind's Eye Spider's Web collection that I got from CraftySteals for being the guest designer at Crafty Steals!!

Be sure to post a link of your layout if you happen to use the sketch!  I would love to see it!
There's nothing better than getting organized!  I love the Clip It Up and the awesome products at Simply Renee!

  1. I have a counter and 3 tables in my scrap room that could all use clip it ups for exactly this same reason! Off to clean up now, thanks for the inspiration!

  3. It's visuals like these that have made a bunch of my friends jump on the bandwagon and buy themselves their own Clip It Ups! When you see how much you can put on their, it is so convincing!

  21. This has me thinking about adding it to my office, I have a bill organizer, but it is spiral bound and busting at the seams. It sometimes takes me a bit to balance all the statements and file all the bills. I could use a jumbo and create file folders to hang from it to hold the statements/bills/receipts for the month.......hmmmmm sounds like a new year resolution to me!!!
