Fall In West Virginia

This past weekend my husband and I decided to take a hike. Hiking is amazing during the Fall. The trees are bursting with color and the ground is covered in beautiful,vibrant, & crunchy leaves.
I love the sound of leaves crunching under my shoes! Nothing is better than that sound during Fall. 
We hiked in one of our favorite areas, the Cheat Canyon. Here, we visited the Coopers Rock Overlook and made our way into the woods on the Raven Rock Trail. 
 
The hike isn't far and is pretty easy with the exception of one steep trail at the very end. On this trail you are surrounded by trees and falling leaves and it was truly beautiful.
 
We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and take some photos of the two of us. I love Fall photos. Nothing adds a beautiful backdrop for your photos like Fall does!
We had so much fun this past weekend and the weather was beautiful. I am so happy we were able to take some awesome photos together!!!

Using What You Have | Reducing Waste

This week as I sat down to make our my meal plan and grocery list I began to realize that we had so much on hand already it seemed silly (and wasteful) to not use those items up first. Last week was a wonky week and most of our meals we had planned did not get made. We also still had fruit on hand, items to make side dishes, and a ton of meat. We had quite a bit of snacks too!

So I decided to base my meal plan for this week on what we had on hand and attempted to come up with meals using those items and decreasing the amount of items I would need to buy. Needless to say I was able to come up with breakfast, lunch and dinner options with only needing to buy a few additional items to complete those meals.

 Instead of wasting what was already in our home, I took a step back and took advantage of everything we had. In the end my grocery bill was greatly reduced and that makes me one happy person! 

So what will we be eating this up coming week.

Breakfast
Breakfast Sandwiches
Cereal

Lunch
Soup
Steak Quesadilla
Homemade Pizza

***Served with celery & fruit

Dinner
Homemade fish sticks
Chicken/ Potato/Veggie Dish
Tacos
Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
Homemade chicken tenders
Breakfast

Quick Drawer Organization

Today I decided to tackle a quick organizational project. My top drawer in my 3 drawer unit beside my desk was starting to become extremely cluttered and the current system I had in place was just not working. So, I hit up my local Dollar Tree and for $6 I purchased some drawer organizers. 

I decided on 2 long bins, 2 medium long bins, and 2 square bins. 


I honestly didn't have an exact plan when I started, just a vague idea of what I wanted to do. So this is what the drawer started out looking like. 


I began by taking everything and I mean everything out of the drawer and put them into piles with similiar items. Once I had all my items out, it was time to put the bins into the drawer.


...and now time to put everything back in! This is an overall look of how I organized everything.


 Here is what is now in my drawer. From left to right: The first bin holds all of my adhesives (pop up dots, glue sticks, tape runners, tape runner refills & sticky tape). The next bin holds all of my post it notes. Then a bin for scissors, hole punch, & sharpies). I have a bin dedicated just for my label maker refills (I go through a ton of these haha) and a bin for my packing tape as well. The final bin holds my washi collection. I am also storing my glue gun and glue sticks as well as labels for my planner.


...and that is it! A simple, quick, and budget friendly organizational project. I am so happy with the way it turned out and I think this new system will work much better for my needs.
