Remember me?

The last time we "talked" I was still enjoying the sweet days of summer.  You know the days.  The days when you can sleep in, and your house is clean, and the dinner choices aren't pizza, chicken nuggets, or pizza.  Those days seem so far away now...and life is just SO busy!  

Today I took a break and met up with some other great bloggers from Georgia.  I'm so glad I did, because now I am motivated to get back on track!  Now, between the planning, grading, and pizza ordering I am going to post!    

This week I'm going to share a few things I have found to make my life easier.  Can I get an amen?  I have a paper problem (totally unrelated to my obsessive book buying problem) and I'm tired of shuffling piles.  

Don't get me wrong, I know how to organize and I can do some damage with the hole puncher.  I have the notebooks, and tabs, and sticky notes, and tabs (did I mention that I have tabs?) but I have 60 kiddos so there are a lot of notebooks and sheet protectors flying around and  

I have been on a mission to go as paperless as possible.  Not long ago I came across, and let me tell you I {puffy} heart this online planbook.  

Here's a little screenshot of what the plans look like for the week:

I can type in my plans, link to all my resources (how cool is that?), and add the standards by choosing from a drop down menu.  Best of all...NO PAPER!  It only costs $1.00 a month, and in my opinion it's worth every last penny!  You can get a free 30 day trial, but let me warn will get hooked!  There are other helpful features as well as video tutorials on how to set it up, so go check it out.  

One notebook down and more to go!  

What tools have you found to help with the piles?  I'd love to hear your tips!
