AHG Badge Work Organization

We have just finished our 4th year with American Heritage Girls.  My daughter and I love it. It seems like just yesterday Lily was a cute little Tenderheart; Now she is a Pioneer.

Over the last four years she has earned 84 merit badges, and countless fun patches.  Due to my husband’s job, we have been involved in four different troops (each in a different state). People often ask me how we keep up with all her work. We use a notebook. For each level she has a one inch, three-ring binder.

Previously I have shared about some of the misadventures that we have had moving to North Carolina. (See What is wrong with this picture?) But the fun continues!  My current frustration is poorly labeled boxes.  I am thankful that my hubby’s new company paid for movers, but they definitely do not care about my stuff.

When the 3 packers descended upon my house I was not able to watch all of them at the same time.  Many of the boxes are labeled “GUESS”. No, I am not making this stuff up. When I first saw these boxes I just scratched my head, and tried to remain calm. “Why would you label a box GUESS?  I have come to realize that the workers could not spell. This is their attempt to spell GUEST. They also labeled some of the breakable items at “FRAJILE”.  For the sake of political correctness, I will not comment on their nationality, but…

I was happy the day my husband found my label maker.  It is one of the those little toys that I love. I have owned mine for about 3 years now. I never thought I would get much use out of it, but it is an organizers friend.  I have been working on re-organizing my pantry. My current pantry is about 1/2 of the size of the one I had in Texas, so space is at a premium.  My previous containers for dry goods were square and did not sit well on the shelf. The tapered sides created a lot of wasted space. I have updated them to a nice set of Rubbermaid. And they are all labeled 🙂  Life is getting back in order.

Get organized
