Back to school with Scoolio-Von-Hoolio and OfficeMax giveaway. Get Organized Today!

Last week I was invited to participate in a "Get Organized for Back-to-School" webcast & twitter chat and it was a blast.

Moving tips?

A few days of nothing have been nice but now I need to get my butt in gear and start getting ready to move. We get the keys to our new place on 2/25 and need to be out of this place my 2/29.. It's nice to have a few days to make the transition although I wont be able to spend my time blogging on those days cause I'll be making trips back and fourth in the car trying to move loads of boxes.. Oh, well a bigger place is good so it's worth it right? Oh, I almost didn't mention that my man got offered a promotion. I can't list the specifics because it's not official yet and I don't want to blow his cover but basically got...
