Creative Procrastination

I procrastinate, but really I like to call it getting creative. You see, there are jobs I really do not like doing. So I pretend to work on them by turning them into some totally uneeded design job. Right now, I'm supposed to be working on a shopping list. We're running low on not just groceries, but about every other consumable item in the house, including clothing. I thought I should probably make a big list of all the things we need so I can fit them into the budget in the next weeks. It seemed like a daunting job. If I just had a list of every consumable item in the house, I could just mark the things I need to restock. Of course, that gave me the grand idea of making such a master list. But rather than walk around the house with a pen and paper, I decided to make it as a checklist in Microsoft Word. But I can't just type text. It need a cover page listing different categories. And you know you can't have a boring cover page. It needs a splash of design.

Yeah, I'm weird. Now I should stop procrastinating and get back to my over creativafied project.


  1. Awesome. :) You should post a list of groceries/household items and I can point out the super good deals.

  2. I'm always looking for super good diaper and wipes deals. I use Huggies for Faith (works best at keeping in the liquid poo) and any brand for Ethan. I pretty much only use Huggies wipes. All the others seem to be either too slimy, too thin, or too rough. Although the new Pampers Thick wipes are alright.

    I also jump on excellent cereal deals.

  3. I have made a list for each place I shop (I shop once a month) that has nearly every item I ever buy there. When it is time to prepare for a shopping trip, I walk around with my clipboard and highlight items needed. This works especially well for the grocery store and Sam's Club. For Walmart, I finally just made a list that has different sections of the store (i.e. clothing, fabric, cleaners, household) and write in what we need. I'd be happy to share if you're interested.

  4. HAHA! This is totally me!!! I'm your newest follower! :)
