So, I think it’s time we move our relationship to the next level. Since we’ve been together for some time now, I feel I can now be completely open about a fetish of mine… and I’m leaving town for ten days also making it easy to be totally honest.
So, back to my fetish. Okay. Are you ready? I have a thing, and by thing I mean A REAL THING for… organizing supplies. (Gasp!) Not so much the organization process, just the supplies. Oh it feels good to have that out in the open. Now, you good earth loving peeps, before you go chaining yourselves to a tree for the love of paper (I live in Oregon, where tree chaining is not as unusual as one might think, neither is walking around topless but that my friends is a topic for another post) I found this darling and earth friendly company Green Room at Target…
There they are, the darlings! I mean really how could I resist? They practically leapt into my cart. True story!
Oh, they make all of the papers that go in our travel binder that much more attractive… now you see why I have the fetish, no?!
Our travel binder has three folders that I hole punched to make dividers. I like to do this so I can pull out one folder if necessary and pop it in my handbag. I don’t like to lug, yes lug, an entire binder around if I don’t have to.
The categories are
In this folder we have:
ManneroftheMonth.com PDF: Road Trip Star Chart to help us keep the natives from getting restless. We have a fun grab bag to reward good car manners!
And in this folder you’ll find:
ManneroftheMonth.com PDF: Vacation Schedule
ManneroftheMonth.com PDF: Vacation Budget
ManneroftheMonth.com PDF: Vacation Star Chart
Directions to Activities
Pre Purchased Tickets
And our final file keeps all of our very important, like the roof over our head papers organized…
· All correspondence with the property rental company
· Vacation Rental Agreement
· Concierge Services
· Hotel Information
Just so you don’t get to the end of the week and wish you had done that thing you were looking forward to doing, it’s helpful to map out your plans. And no this doesn’t mean you will not be relaxing. Because I plan to do more relaxing than anything else.
To help keep the kids on the straight and mannerly we are helping them with this star chart. The best thing about this chart is it provides the opportunity as parents to discuss what’s expected.
Well there you have it fetish and all! Thanks for being so great about it and if you want to join us for the full monte… or should I say the full manner you can pick up an issue here for subscribers or here to join!
