Office Organizing with Yard Sale Finds

My hubby and I are thrilled to finally live in town and love getting up on a Saturday morning to wander the Farmer's Market and yard sales in the area. Here are a couple of finds that we have used for my office space and I'm SO in love with them! The first is an old mail holder. I love how it has oodles of slots and I've decided to use it to store all my jewellery cards, customs forms, business cards and anything else of that sort. Now I just have to finish getting it loaded up! Cost: $5
Almost everyone I know (or their mother) has had one of these at some point. The wooden shelf with a heart in it (this one happens to be a plate rail) but I love that it is both long and thin and perfect for displaying my product. At some point I'm going to put a dowel underneath to hold all of my ribbon (add it to the project list!) Cost: $1
Now all of my product and my packaging materials are within reach above my packing table and are no longer taking up valuable space ON TOP of the table!
What are some of your favourite yard sale finds?

Meal Plan and Return to Batch Cooking (sort of)

Somehow April has turned into August! As you may have noticed some of my once regular posts (like my monthly roundups) have disappeared and I haven't been posting multiple times a day. Between birthday parties, playdates, sick kids (probably a result of the first two things), hubby's holidays and a business that is continuing to grow at a pace I hadn't quite expected (THANKYOU CUSTOMERS!) I find that I have started to fall behind on some things. I have previously written about batch cooking and meal planning and how a combination of the two can save not only MONEY but also TIME! So today I am determined to get back into the swing of things and get my new chest freezer stocked for the busy holiday season!

Here's the remainder of this week's menu plan
Tuesday Dinner 
Chicken Stir Fry

Breakfast: Egg Salad Sandwhiches (yes we all love them for is it any different than eggs and toast?) and strawberries
Lunch: Pizza
Dinner: The kids and I are at a playdate dinner so hubby can have leftover stir fry or bbq himself a burger

Breakfast: Bagels and strawberries
Lunch: Sandwiches
Dinner: BBQ Pork Chops, sweet potatos and broccoli
