Case in point - I was standing in Publix on Wednesday, knowing that I had run out of two important things, and do you think I could remember either one? Not a chance... got home and realized it was tea and sugar. Shopped again on Thursday, and still didn't bring home sugar or tea...
It doesn't stop there... we missed attending a friend's Christmas Open House because both Wayne and I were suffering from newborn parent brain and thought that it was Saturday instead of Sunday last week...
Fortunately, Mead has sent me some great products from their Organizher line to help me combat newborn parent brain and turn my refrigerator and purse into organization central!
Organizher offers functional, flexible, fashionable products designed with the modern household in mind. Most women juggle multiple schedules, long to-do lists, budget tracking, and meal planning—not just for one person, but for many. That’s why we developed “all me” and “all them” sections, customizable formats, and fabulous designs.
Used alone or in a system, Organizher products help you gain control and make it work!
This organizer manages all of your “to buy” lists! Two tabbed sections keep track of shopping lists and online retailer information.
Too many loyal shopper cards? No problem:
Handy storage sheets hold traditional and keychain-sized loyalty cards, and a zipper pouch helps manage receipts and coupons.
Write ’n Wipe Meal Center
A weekly meal planning dry erase grid plus an attached paper
“shopping list” notepad makes this a complete meal center.
Magnetic so it can conveniently hang on your fridge, this meal center helps organize lunch and dinner menus as well as any groceries that are needed. Dry erase pen with eraser attached. SRP: $7.99
Week-to-Week Magnetic Notepad
Multi-tasking made easy! This handy notepad keeps the week ahead in clear view. Each page features an undated weekly
calendar on the front and a to-do list on the back. This flexible system gives you plenty of room for planning. Hang it on any magnetic surface or tear off each week’s page to keep with
you on the go. SRP: $6.99
OMG - did I ever need this right now... I actually made a trip to the grocery store and got what I actually needed - everything I needed - including the stuff I thought of in the car. The Shopping Companion has actually become my go to To-do-list and I clipped the shopping list from the Wipe and Write meal center into it when I went shopping. I had also read a scary story in Dear Abby today about someone losing their keys with key tags attached and being robbed because of it, so I unclipped the cards from my keys and slid them into the convenient slots in the book... best part is that the store clerk scanned them right from my Shopping Companion.
It's also helpful to have a week by week planner right on the fridge beside the meal planner - once I see that both Wayne and Robyn have activities on a given night, I know that I'm changing my meal plan to something in the crockpot that will keep warm ... so that I can feed the kids early and Wayne after his event!
