If you are anything like me, you find something you love on pinterest, pin it, and then nothing else happens. I love finding a free printable on Pinterest for parenting/kids, and I've come up with a system to make sure they all get used. I made a “Mommy Book,” where I save all of the good ideas I find on pinterest. I have a document saved on my computer where I copy and paste all the fun activities, recipes and ideas. I then put them in my mommy book. For certain printables that I will use more than once (lunch box notes, charts, planning sheets), I file them away in my filing cabinet so that when I want to use one of them I can quickly make a copy of it and file the original back in its place. There are just too many free and fun things available on the internet these days not to save them! When I want to put a love note in my kid's lunch, I don't want to have to think about which Pinterest “board” I saved it to, and whether or not my printer has enough ink to print them. I just want to walk over to my filing cabinet, find the file labeled “Lunch notes,” and cut one out real quick. This has been one of the projects I get most excited about as a mom.
So yes, if you like these ideas pin them on Pinterest, but make sure to come back later to save and print them all out (Or better yet, save them all to a jump drive and print them at your local copy center). The problem I have found as I have been compiling my “mommy book” is that a lot of my pins on Pinterest take me to a printable that ends up not really being free. I have saved you a bunch of time by weeding through all the paid/free printables and only linking to ones that are actually free. I will be doing a free printable roundup each month, so if you would also like to make a “mommy book” and save all the great ideas, make sure and subscribe to my blog so that you get notified each time I publish a Free Printable Roundup like this one! Printable Round-up #2 can be found here. And if you have a blog with fun printables that relate to motherhood, kids and parenting that you would like featured on my blog, please contact me with a link and I will check them out. Thank you, and enjoy! I hope you get as giddy about these as I do!
