Goodbye Old Friend

It is with great sadness that I have to say goodbye to the companion I have had with me everyday for this last year. If you check my blog post from exactly one year ago titled, “The Humble File Folder” from January 5, 2014 you will see the organizer I made for my coupons, bank deposits, shopping lists, to do lists, etc..

Sadly, she has become a little tired looking and worn around the edges over the past year (but  haven’t we all?)

Just tired

I even felt bad using it, sort of like wearing old worn out undergarments, if you know what I mean. Well with a new year ahead of me and an urge to “scrap my stash” I made this little beauty last night.

I mixed up all the papers to keep it interesting although they are all from Crate Paper. So today my new organizer went out with me and we accomplished everything on our list without forgetting a thing. If you would like to make and organizer for yourself, there are instructions on my original post as well as video how-tos on YouTube. 

I confess that I did throw out my old organizer in the trash and then fished it back out because I have become attached to it. I will use it at home to organize other paper items. I will treat it with kid gloves as it has been my faithful companion for the last 365 days!
