We would be lost without a calendar. We have moved a lot of our life organising to digital (much to P’s absolute relief and my filofax’s horror!) but I still need a visual reference. We set up our hallway to include a calendar and I knew I just needed to have some little magnets to tell me when to take the bins out.
We have 3 bins…and they rotate and switch and jiggle about all over the calendar and make me dizzy…so I decided to take matters into my own hands.
Everyone has some of these right? They give them away in packs of yoghurts and you can very rarely get a full set. I decided these would be perfect to re-use for something more useful.
Using white labels, cover the magnet and then split it into 3 sections. I did it into 6, but then realised it wasn’t the best idea! Don’t worry if your labels overlap…we are going to trim them off in a bit.
Using Sharpies or felt tips to colour in the sections to colour code to your bins/events/people/pets etc etc etc.
I coloured the magnet on top of a plastic baggie as not to make a mark on my desk. Worked quite nicely!
Job done! You of course can neaten them up and make them smaller or a different shape. I just needed a quick visual reference!
Easy peasy right?
