I’m so excited! I just had to show you this new kit from Clean Mama in action. While my Busy Mama Homekeeping Kit was printing off the computer I had a great idea. First I put the documents into sheet protectors (2 to a protector). There are 18 documents in the kit.

The sheet protectors make an erasable surface. I used a dry erase marker to write directly on the sheet protector. When this month is over I can simply erase it and write in a new month.

The same with the shopping list. Just write the list on the sheet protector with a dry erase marker. Once you’ve gone shopping just erase and start a new list.

The daily planner will get wiped off every night, leaving me with a clean sheet protector for the next day. I need to find a smaller tip dry erase marker. This one’s a little too big.  

The information that doesn’t change was written on the sheets with a regular pen and then slid into the protectors. 

I’m keeping the binder in the kitchen since that’s where I need most of the information that’s in it. I coordinated the paper I covered it with to match the covered cookbooks.

Then I made a label out of rub-on letters and scrapbook paper.

And attached it to the front of the binder with double sided tape.

It looks great with my cookbooks and it’s so easy to access.

I love this little corner of my counter. Very useful and pretty (except for the chicken border, I will be taking care of that soon).

What a great idea! I love that I wouldn’t be printing so much and that I wouldn’t have to use all that paper. Very green! Thanks for sharing!

Leanne,
Just and FYI since dry erase markers have a tendency to smear you can actually use a sharpie. When you want to clean it off just use the dry erase cleaner, usually in the spray bottle next to the dry erase markers at the store. It takes sharpie off of almost every surface.

That is awesome! I’m going to make one for shopping for sure, and a few others as well. You are so resourceful :-)

I use the sheet protector idea in my classroom all the time. The kids use dry erase because the writing needs to last for only one class period. Great idea to use at home, as well.
