When managing time for blogging:Being prepared and Organized is key

When it comes to blogging or picking the little ones up from school. Or anything else in fact its not just about the thing you need to do. Its also about the time before and after and how to get to that point in time.

I know this dose not make much sense yet but it will.

When blogging its about sitting in a comfortable chair. And punching out the keys on your keyboard.

Personally I think its more about everything else rather then just typing and hoping people look at your posts. After all if your not properly prepared no one will even know you exist.

For bloggers that create videos you need a pc with at least basic or cheap video editing software. So you can add beginning and end credits. Plus you may want to back up your videos so if there ever deleted from the site there on you can replace them. So you may need a extra hard drive or at least be able to back up your videos on a flash drive. You will also need a good camera to do good videos after all sometimes a cheaply made webcam dose not always do the job.

If you working from a small room or bedroom. You may need a desk with extra storage or a few plastic drawers. To place your goodies into. Plus a keyboard I prefer my wireless over my corded on plus my wireless mouse. I would like to start doing videos soon but I still would need to get a camera still.

Its not all about sitting at a desk and typing. Its also about planning ahead. If you can't plan a bit ahead. Then you wont know what tomorrow will bring.

When managing time you will need to know what you want to do before you do it.

I personally have a few different solid colored notebooks plus different colored pens and highlighters. To keep track of my posts and when I post what I post about. I try to keep it as organized as I possibly can so I don't get sidetracked.

Some people use message boards I use notepads. Some use colored stick pins or push pins I use colored ink. There are many ways to managed time. But the first thing you need to do is organize your things to keep track of the time you manage.

Managing anything in life dose not mean anything if you don't have proper organization skills and the tools needed for your trade in life. After all time is like money i you can't organize bills you have no money if you can't organize your time you ave no money.

That's why some people need to take a little more time then others. To handle time management. Everybody moves at there own pace.

Good luck with your own time managing steps.

How To: Organize craft room cheaply

First of all there are many ways to organize your craft room cheaply. I would firstly suggest plastic tumblers. Around Christmas time you can get red, green, and white. Plastic tumblers with designs on them or you can even get plain colored ones in red, green, white. As well as other Christmas colors.

You could take a cheap shelve or a 1" think board 6" or wider to make a shelve. And then make the board about 3 feet or so long and paint or stain and color you want. And then you the Plastic tumblers to hold items such as pens, pencils, Markers etc.

You could even put holes in the shelve and set the cups inside the holes so that you don't have to worry about the cups tipping over.

Another good idea would be to buy photo boxes from hobbylobby.com or in-store when there having a sale. Sometimes people use them to coral cords or even to make a cheap charging station.

Another good idea would be to check you local dollar stores mine is called a dollar tree. I had recently purchased plastic over the door hangers I bought 1 2-pack of green and 1 2-pack of purple. So each hook was only 50 cents each.

I also purchased a 2 pack of the purse hooks they will hold up to 30 pounds of weight. I bought them for 50 cents each 2 pack I bought 3 2-packs. Plus I also bought 6 fiber cloths for 50 cents each. And paper Halloween cups for 50 cents each pack I bought 4 pack. The paper cups come in handy for the kids crafts for holding paints and so on as well as using them for drinking.

The over the door hooks I'm going to use for holding my bigger purses with my mixed crafting supply's. As well as for my hanging organizers. There are many things I can use the hooks for.

I also buy my cheap baggies from there for my beads and so on.

I have been purchasing my school supplies from walmart lately. I purchased crayons such as crazart for .37 cents each I bought (4) if purchased crayons from dollar tree it would have cost me 1.00 each or maybe .50 each so walmart was cheaper. Mini stapler pink zebra stripe .97 each wood ruler 2 for .50 neon erasers 1.00 for 4.Pink, yellow, orange, purple. Good quality at a good price.

A few months ago I purchased 2 green plastic/rubbery baskets from goodwill in my local goodwill for 1.00  normally 1.00 each at dollar tree. And I can put all the supplies listed in one of them.

There are always good storage items at goodwills all year long. I have even purchased locker shelves for 2.00 for 2 normally 5 each at walmart. when school shopping. And I bought them 3 months ago.

Another good thing to look for at goodwills is plastic storage bins or even Tupperware with lids or without lids. If they have lids you can use them for pretty much anything but without lids I would be a bit more careful especially with little ones running around. I would use them to coral item in back room like hair pieces or small children's cosmetics like lip glosses or chapstick or even hand lotions in little tubes.

Just because the containers have no lids dose not mean the can't be used.

***If you have extra containers. What do you do with yours? Do you use them for crafting supplies or use them for organizing on anymore or do you just get rid of them?***

Walmart Traffic VS Amazon Traffic

When someone says online traffic. There is more to it then just traffic. After all traffic is visitors to the sites in question.

First its online searches such as just searching for the online store name like amazon.com or walmart.com but when it comes to that I would look at both.

Reasons I like walmarts cheap plus size clothing section. I also like looking in there clearance section.

The reason I like amazon is well. I like there anime section they have everything from stickers to mouse pads to dvds and even body pillows. And much more just in anime. Plus I like there detailed reviews from previous purchasers. I also like the shopping cart section where on top it will show you if something dropped or went up in price.

I also like the idea of buying from the amazon store or a used version from someone just as trust worthy.

I have been buying from amazon for years. I only purchased from walmart online store once and that was my first fitness ball.

***Traffic is not all about who types your name in there url search bar. Its about what there looking for and the prices there willing to pay. As well as how much info there looking for on they items. Plus color and size etc.***

Its not always about site design its also about having what someone is looking for.

Free sunday papers with coupons: Library

Wen it comes to getting free Sunday papers I used to be able to get them from my local gas station for free. But recently I have not been able to get them there. So I started to look around at other places.

One of the places where I started getting free Sunday papers is the local library.

I have recently gotten a cardboard box filled with free magazines and Sunday papers.

The box had mixed papers from all week long so I only got a few Sunday ones but still worth going through a few papers."You never know what you will find in the Sunday papers. So if your looking for some free papers always try you local library."

Below is a list of a few things I had purchased from walmart in my local area.

schick quattro titanium 6.47 each I bought 2 plus I had 2 $3.00 dollar off coupons.
almay intense i-color (bold Nudes) 4.97 each Plus I had a $4.00 off coupon.
herbal essence body wash 2.97 each plus I had a $1.00 off coupon.
herbal essence shampoo/conditioner/ect. was $2.97 each plus I had a 3.00 off coupon.
sinfulcolors nail polish. ad mach walgreens .99 each limit 3. walmart was $1.97.

Image from amazon.com
One of my proudest buys was a Lysol No-Touch Hand Soap Dispenser $6.47 each I had a $3.00 off coupon. Plus I purchased a No-Touch Refill for $3.47. So with the price of the Dispenser and the soap together I only spent .47 for the soap.

Plus I also purchase some new Scunci o damage elastics $2.17 each pack of 15 pieces. I got a pack of 15 plus 5 free. So 5 extra is a pretty good deal.

Total amount spent today was 28.45 I saved $16.00 with the coupons.

I had a few extra thing in the cart also like glitter glue pens and paint roller set.

But I saved pretty good with the coupons mixed with ad matching.

For someone not to used to doing this and just starting out its good to shop around and match ads.
