Ava’s Office Solutions 24 piece Magnetic Push Pins have been a wonderful addition to our office and homeschooling supplies! We are always hanging and posting things up so typically we have a lot of push pins and magnets around. However, I tend to find I use magnets far more than push pins. Typical places to hang important documents or lesson plans always end up on my white board in our schooling area or on the fridge in my kitchen. Continue reading
The Mead Organize School Memory Keeper is something you may want if you are looking for a simple memory keeping organizer for your child. The organizer is a lovely shade of purple which mimics a rich eggplant. The cover front features a lighter shade of purple flower. There’s a gray elastic bungee type band in which purpose is to keep the organizer closed and the contents safely in place. The side of the organizer has metal plate section for you to slide a piece of paper in with the name of the child you are keeping records of. The front has a white rectangle in the upper middle area which on it reads “School Memories” followed by the text “preschool-12th grade” and “This belongs to:” leaving a space for a name.
The inner pages feature one two sided page for each grade from preschool to 12th. On the pages there’s a place for school name, teacher, nickname, age, height, weight, current events, friends, milestones, and signature. Each grade level page has a top opening pocket in which you can store art, photos, or other memorabilia that was special that year.
I found the organizer to be quite durable. It’s wire bound so the inner pages turn easily while flipping through. It generously sized at 10.25 x 11.5 inches but can fit on a standard shelf easily. Being impressed with the quality as well as simplicity, I’m highly considering another memory keeper for my son and using this one for my daughter that’s currently in Kindergarten. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a simple yet special memory keeper to keep throughout the span of preschool through 12th grade.
The Mead Organizher To-Do Magnetic Notepad is a tool to help keep organized during the daily hustle and bustle of life. The notepad is generously sized at 4 x 9 in size and can be hung on any magnetic surface. There are two strong magnets on the back top part of the pad that will keep the 75 sheets in place!
Each sheet has two columns, a to buy and a to do area. In each of those sections there is a place to write and a circle in which you can check off or fill when the task is completed. There are 35 rows in each column to make your lists! What really makes this notepad unique is that there is a perforated line between each column. This allows you to tear off the list you made need to bring along to the store or when one is completed and the other is not. I found that the lists separated just fine along the perforated line as long as you did it slowly. Also you can remove both at the same time by tearing them from the top decorative edge.
I prefer taking notes and making lists by hand so I know this product will get tons of use from me. I keep the pad hung in my kitchen on my fridge because most often when I am either cooking or washing dishes I suddenly remember something that we need to buy or that needs done.
Overall a great product but the price just a little more than I would spend ($6.99 as of this posting) where as the $3.00-$5.00 range would better suit it. If you are interested in purchasing, you can find the Mead Organizher To-Do Magnetic Notepad on Amazon.com.

I found the Wilson Jones Heavy Duty Round Ring Binder in the 1.5-Inch size to work well enough. The color is true to what claims to be, which is a bright pink. There are two transparent pockets for inner storage. The 1 1/2 inch round ring binder can surely hold 350 sheets of paper. The never gap rings have prevented any disaster of losing papers and I like that the rings are also snag free.
The PVC Free polypropylene cover hasn’t cracked or shown wear with repeated use. The material used states to be better for the environment and that it last 10x longer than vinyl. There are zero bubbles or other imperfections on the binder. Continue reading
