I love January ...not only is it Spending Freeze month and I can make some traction with my savings goals but it’s a great opportunity to be creative and organized. Check out how I took a Dollar Tree Desk Pad and turned it into a great family calendar for $ 1.00. I bought the calendar in December at Dollar Tree. You see I love all things organizing and take office supplies seriously I can spend two hours at Office Max looking at stuff. It’s super expensive and I find myself always having to tweak the items to make it work for my budget. I can't tell you how many planner systems I have used through the years. So when it came to a family calendar, I thought that I could turn a Dollar Tree Desk Pad into something that was functional and looked nice in my kitchen. Well here is the results ....pretty cute and works fantastic.
I took a piece of bigger cardboard, wrapped in contact paper that I already had sitting in my craft room. I made sure I sealed the back with some tape so it wouldn't unravel. I then mounted the desk pad to the cardboard with a stapler and I was done with the project. Seriously, it took me 5 minutes to make. I was so pleased with the results
