Monthly Favorites: August 2018

by The Organized Dream

Welcome to my first monthly favorites post! In lieu of my usual weekly Friday Favorites post, I decided it was best to share my favorites from each month and I have some fun things to share from the month of August!

I’ve been pretty busy blogging all month long but the last week or so has taken a hit because I’ve been planning for my daughter’s birthday and getting everything ready for her to go back to school. It’s been a little crazy to say the least. 
Let’s get into the list, shall we?

My freaking Planner is a Godsend! 

Without my planner, I seriously don’t think I could have organized my life the way I did. I was able to keep track of blog posts, shop maintenance, my daughter’s birthday plans and everything else under the sun!
In all honesty, what helped the most were the vertical planner pages from my new free planner printables pack. I could plan out blog posts and keep little reminders about upcoming events. Even though I used it predominantly for blog post planning, this helped me know where all my other time, plan…well, life fit in and where my ultimate deadlines were.
I would really like to show how I use my monthly calendar in the near future so if you want a look, let me know in the comments and I will add it in for next month!

Unicorn Everything on Amazon

For the life of me I can’t understand where my daughter’s fascination with unicorns came from. All I have to say is that I am oh-so grateful to Amazon and their 2-day shipping because I was able to score balloon and decor and even an adorable cake topper at pretty much the last minute!

Killer Back-To-School Sales

If you have a kid in school, then you know how important those back-to-school sales are! I love to shop at The Children’s Place because they offer awesome sales and great rewards! I mean, at one point I was able to buy 3 pairs of shoes for $15! It’s all about staying in the loop! I was also happy about the Justice sales as well. Their clothing is pretty pricey, but they had some great sales this month as well. The key is to look for their reduced or free shipping days…hint, hint!

White Buffalo Check Fabric Is my Jam!

I have a new love for this print! If you saw any of my posts from last year around Christmas time, then you’ll know that I already adore the print in general, but the white buffalo check is a new favorite that I can’t wait to incorporate into my fall decor! I just purchased some of the awesome print and now I just need to figure out exactly what to do with it. Do you have any suggestions because I can’t decide to do fabric pumpkins, incorporate it into a tablescape, a wreath…i can’t make up my mind!
What are your favorites this month? Share with me in the comments!
