The best dollars I've spent lately

I loooooove any store with a dollar section (but am not a big fan of the Dollar Store - go figure.) Anyways, while at Michael's yesterday I got three awesome (to this girl!) things for only a buck a piece.

{Click on the pictures for a close-up. You can see everything on the Packing List!}


#1: Weekly Menu Planner. It's magnetic and has a bunch of pages. Did I need it? Not really, especially because I usually plan out my menu on the bottom of my weekly calendar, but who cares - it's cute and cheap! #2: Packing List. Loooooove this! It has more pages than I think we'll ever use, but since we have a handful of trips coming up I know it will come in handy. It has check marks for everything you can think of! Love, love!

#3: Banana saver. Leila loves bananas, but usually only eats half at a time. The problem is I don't like to waste the other half, so I end up sticking it in the fridge, but I HATE bananas and their smell, and it always ends up making the whole fridge smell like banana. Eww! This awesome $1 investment keeps the bananas fresh, and my fridge not banana-scented.And this I didn't get recently, but also got at Michael's for $1. I put everything for the week on it, including our tentative dinner menu. Love, love!
