OoOH me too, and how did you make the bill/coupon organiser I really wanted to make one for Itchyfingers but couldn't find supplies to make on or a finished one to jazz up. I could do with one for me too also.

Inside a dog it's too dark to read.

I found an existing bill organizer that I jazzed up with alcohol inks and some handmade paper and stamps ... pretty much the system is that you put your bills in it and put them somewhere you can see.  There are sections inside so you can put "today", "tomorrow", ... or by week, or whatever makes sense to you.  As you get a bill, put it in the right slot .. then every day/week/payday open it up and pay whatever's in there.  No hunting for bills!  It's pretty so you can put it somewhere you won't miss it Smiley

funny, i was repainting my kitchen cabinets last night and after they were finished, the rest of the kitchen looked so forlorn in comparison.  so, I took the junk off my fridge, (what a difference!) and that includes the lame pocket thing I had hanging there for collecting bills, where they are rarely seen again. Lo and behold, my new system show up the very next day!

I can only guess that I'm crazy tired and PMSing, because I am not an emotional girl.  I did however get all teary eyed when I got Spencertwins package in the mail.  That was even before I opened the darn thing.  My hubby thought it was downright funny that I got choked up.  Dumb boys  Roll Eyes (Acutally he's really great, it just cracks him up when I get emotional over "silly" stuff because that's so not me)  I just have to say that I truely do appreciate the time my partners take out of their lives to craft for me.  None of my friends or family do.  They always say why would they bother, when I could make anything I want, exactly like I want and they "may" not get it exactly right.  I say pooey on them.  I love it when people make things for me.

Jennifer you totally ROCK and completely made my day!  I loved everything and now have to make my girls their own utensil rolls otherwise they're going to steal mine (and that is completely unacceptable).  Here's the picture of all of my superfab frugal goodies together.  I received an assortment of reusable gift bags.  I think I'm going to put a grommet or buttonhole in the big one with the trees and hang it in the broom closet so it can hold all of my reusable swiffer covers.  I think that way I can admire it more often and it will help organize my cleaning closet.  Woo-Hoo.  Spencertwins also included 3 reusable swiffer covers.  Just in case I do actually give up the gift bags there are also some hand stamped gift tags that can be attached to them.  As I mentioned before there was also a great utensil roll/mini placemat for my lunch box.  The last bit of wonderful was a mini legal pad portfolio.  



Here are pictures of the portfolio and the utensil roll opened & unrolled.  Thank you so much Spencertiwns, everything was perfect.  I hope you enjoy your goodies as much as I enjoyed mine.  No tears though, I can't handle the tears.

Great job on that package, SpencerTwins! Those little bags are so cute, and of course, the utensil roll -- super cool!
