I often hear people saying that they have a difficult time balancing everything. This is something I have struggled with too. However, now that I have a system down, I have no problem tackling whatever is on my plate. (As long as I stick to the system and stop watching so much Gilmore Girls!) The best way for me to balance life is to keep lists, calendars, and notes about what needs to get done. It helps me see everything big picture and not overbook myself...something that I would do a lot a couple years ago when I was babysitting for multiple families at the same time. While I use an Erin Condren planner to keep tabs on most of my life, the daily pages are small and I often need an extra list or two for the day to keep everything in check.

Recently I stumbled across Paper Works, a design shop that creates calendars, menu charts, and other printables to help you stay organized and inspired. Each month they put out new printables to help you stay organized. They also include monthly extras, such as valentines in February and place cards in November.

I use this July monthly calendar, daily planner, and house duties to do list to stay organized and on top of everything that needs to get done!

Paper Works  is offering a $100 gift card to their shop, which would allow one lucky reader to access their monthly printables and their shop! This gift card will get you access to the calendars, meal planners, scripture cards, art prints, and more that grace their website!
