Organize Your Life - Finances

This is something that my husband and I really need to work on. We suck at saving money, budgeting money, etc. We a very much a paycheck to paycheck type of family, and if we're already doing that BEFORE we have children I can only imagine how hard of a time we'll have. I think that this is going to be the most important prinatable section for me, and I put a LOT of work into these. To check out the rest of the printable's I have for Organize Your Life click here!

Title Page

The debt payoff worksheet is one of my favorite ones. 
I have a lot of debt unfortunately, not as much as a lot 
of people, but medical bills and student loans leaves your 
wallet hurting. I love that I'll be able to put ALL of the 
people I owe money on and WATCH the 
amount I owe just disappear! 

The expense log is pretty much just balancing a 
check book, but it's for EVERYTHING. 
Debit card, cash, check, etc. 

I pretty much just think that this is adorable, and pretty easy
to follow. You put your reoccurring bills, the amount, and
just check off that you've paid it for the month!

Monthly Budget. Know how much you're planning
on spending, and just try to keep within your budget. 
This is awesome for being able to see where all of 
your extra money is going. 

And because I know that everyone doesn't have the same expenses
I went ahead and made an extra blank one. 

So there's the financial one! I'm sure that I'll get a lot of use out of this one. 

Organize Your Life - To Do Lists/Calendar

This one is going to be a little shorter than the rest of them because there are SO many sections that this one is just a basic covering of them all. They're all pretty self explanatory, and took me FOREVER to make as these were the first ones I did! If you want the rest of the series, click here to be taken to the link!

Title page obviously. 

Monthly Calendar for a quick look at appointments, important dates, etc. 

Weekly To Do's, what needs to be done, what bills need
to be paid, who you need to call for the week, etc.

Pretty much the same thing as the weekly one, but broken down
into morning/evening of what it is you need to get done!

And the important dates! For when you have an appointment that
was scheduled months in advance, or have a birthday,
graduation, anniversary, etc. where not remembering the date
will get you into trouble!

That's it for this segment! I hope you enjoyed it!

Organize Your Life - Cleaning Schedule

And now onto the cleaning schedule! I've left this pretty blank for the most part so you can decide what chores you want to complete on what day! I know that the majority of cleaning schedules I've found online always have something on it that doesn't apply to my house, and my OCD does not do well with this in the least bit. So I just created my own. I hope you enjoy! To check out the rest of this series, click here.

Super pretty title page

First we have the Cleaning Checklist. It's just the overall
view of the different chores broken down from daily to yearly,
these are where you put your chores that you may forget like
cleaning out the gutters or dusting the ceiling fans!

This is your daily/weekly chore list! It has a section for you
to write all of the daily chores in it and the chores you only
do once a month, such as dusting the baseboards. 

This is the daily cleaning chart! These are basic items
that you should probably be doing every day anyways. It's
basic picking up of the house each day, with focus on a specific
room each day! This is going to be SUPER helpful for me. 

Pretty self explanatory here. These are for when you deep clean
your house. Can't remember the last time you washed the 
windows in the living room? Just flip to your list and you'll 
be able to see! This is also a super awesome tool for 
when your husband comes home and asks what
YOU'VE been doing all day! Just pull this puppy out
and show them!

So there's the cleaning schedule! I hope you enjoy! 

Organize Your Life - Blog Management

Today's organizational post is all about organizing your blog! I've only been blogging for about two months at the time of posting this, but I've completely fallen in love with it. I have all of these different ideas floating around my head that I really want to put into action on my blog, and always end up forgetting because I don't have anywhere to organize all of my thoughts. I found a printable kit online that I liked, but didn't want to pay, (I'm cheap!) and I wanted to be able to put my own changes on it. Therefore, I created my own management kit! I'm VERY proud of it and think that it turned out pretty cussing spiffy! Check back here for more updates on my binder!

To start out we obviously starts out with the title page. 
These aren't 100% necessary, but are rather helpful when 
it comes to separating the sections and making your
 organizational binder more, well, organized!

I plan on doing different events through out the year.
I'll eventually run contests and make certain posts 
based off of the theme's that work with that particular
month. Valentine's Day in February, fun activities to do with
kids during July, etc. etc. 

The Blogging Month also helps keep everything that
you have to do throughout the month. Pretty self explanatory. 
It's broken into a monthly and weekly section for easy 
accessibility when you just have a minute to glance for what
you need, along with any upcoming advertising/giveaways.

A great way to track different things that you do on a monthly
basis with your blog, whether that be a monthly wrap up, 
a link exchange you belong to, or a care package program like

Once again, still pretty self explanatory. Simply
a list of the posts you want to make, and your to do list. 

Daily Blog Tasks. Yeah, I'm THAT into blogging. 
I know that some of you reading this are rolling your eyes, how
could someone possibly need an entire page dedicated to what
you're going to do in your blog? Well, with all of the idea's 
floating around in my head, and with upcoming giveaways, there 
are important things to remember during the day when your blog starts to grow. 

Contact Information! With all of the
people that you make while blogging it's important
to be able to keep track of who comes from what blog
ESPECIALLY if you're going to start doing
reviews and giveaways!

I suck so hardcore at remembering passwords and log-in
 information. Almost every website has different 
requirements for passwords and user name.
This is just a handy little took to keep track of 
what websites you use what information on!

Like I said, I always get really good ideas for posts and then
end up forgetting about it within the hour. There are so 
many of my good ideas that are forever lost in the mess that's called my brain, that something like this is going to 
be EXTREMELY helpful!

A series is different from a normal post planner because
it's something that happens on a regular basis. I have a
few of them that I've been throwing around,
so this is going to be AWESOME to be able to see all my ideas in one place. 

If you're going to start doing reviews or trying to get sponsors
this sheet is a very easy way to be able to know how to get
into contact with your sponsors. 

So that's how to organize your blog! I'm VERY excited to print these all out and finish them! I can't wait to post the final installment with everything all put together!

O is for...

Overly Sensitive Military Wives
A Guide to OSMW for the Average Dependapotamus 

Once upon a time ago, about a year or so back, I guess if you want to be technical, there was a page called Knockers for the Troops. They had women submit pictures of their cleavage to a page on Facebook that posted them as their way of showing support for the troops.


Guys commented and oogled, and wives got pissed the cuss off that their husbands were deployed and looking at pictures of other chicks COVERED boobs. It was ridiculous. Not only did I submit a picture or two with my husbands permission, I also showed him the site and we looked at them together. We played the "Can you find my boobies?" game, and it was fun haha. He'd pick mine out every time rather quickly. So that felt nice, LOL. But people seriously flipped the cuss out. These were the types of pictures on the site.

BAM. Boob shot! Anyways, once you're done going "DA-YUM" 
I'll continue. Okay, you back? Awesome. Lets move on then shall we?
If you can read this you're clearly not looking at my boobs as you SHOULD be. 

Anyways, so yeah. People went all bat cuss crazy and Overly Sensitive Military Wives was born. There was just as much backlash about that too. A cuss ton of dependas came out of hiding and started screaming their butt hurt from their computer screens while nomming their Twinkies  How DARE they make fun of them? Their husband PFC John Doe is gonna hear about this and then you'll be in trouble with the FRG! Take that picture of her down NOW. Ridiculous! OSMW is actually about funny cuss being posted multiple times through out the day. Six even has our back when it's a particularly annoying dead day on the news feed. Here are a few examples of what you can expect to find when you happen to stumble upon Overly Sensitive Military Wives in your free time. Seriously, click the cussing link. 

They blast the cuss out of cusses that disrespect our fallen soldiers. 

And bring attention to those that are a positive reflection on humanity. 

They call out cheaters in hilarious ways. 

And more hilarity. 
My favorite is most definitely the Make 'Em Famous.
They haven't done one in quite a while, so people should REALLY
send in the stories for all of our reading pleasures. 

Back on topic, they make fun of the wives that think that 
they have absolutely anything to do with his career. 
They're the ones that really give military wives a bad name. 
Wearing Rank is NEVER an acceptable thing to do, whether he be
a private just leaving for basic (it happens) or 
a Command General, and all of those in between. 

Suck it Army Wives.

They make fun of all the stupid people that make life 
just that much more interesting for the rest of us.

And the tag chasers. 
Seriously girls, I know it seems glamorous. 
But it's not. I promise.

They post inspirational pictures, things meant
just to brighten up your day!

They give ideas on what to send in care packages to 
your loved one's over seas.
And remind you to respect OPSEC for everyone's safety.

They dig on those that take wearing their
husbands rank to a whole new level!

And celebrate the sacrifice that those serving our country have
made, and make sure that they know that it wasn't in vain. 

There's also bacon. And bacon, and more bacon. 

Yeah, they're pretty into bacon over there. 

This also made me laugh a LOT. I can only hope to be half 
the parent that Six appears to be hahaha. 

And lastly, here's a picture of Sir Slotherson the Third.
From now on he's my new Mascot. I love him already. 
Come at me, Bro.
