My fast included blogging and while I missed it and wondered about whether anyone missed me, I stuck to my guns and didn't post. What I did do, was take pictures during the forty days and jot down blog ideas, so I have some material for a bit! As I look to the future, I will maintain my blog and post my ideas and activities on Instagram, but my Facebook activity will be infrequent, particularly in light of Facebook's current controversies.
On to my storage hack; one day I was chatting with a friend at work and she offered me a piece of gum, and as she did I heard a choir of angels singing, "AHHHHHHHHHHH!" A light bulb went on! The gum was in the best container ever! It is the absolute perfect size for articulation cards. I set out to find the cheapest price on Extra 35 stick packs of gum. So far the cheapest price has been at Walmart, $1.89, but I think that was a mistake because when I went to buy more, they were $1.98. The upside is my artic. cards smell like spearmint and wintergreen.
|One stick left...OH BOY!!!|
|These containers are the perfect size for cards!|
I do like to chew gum, however now I am eagerly trying to finish these packs, so I can put the containers to work. Now everyone who walks into my room is offered a piece. After seeing my joy, my friend Stacy, who turned me on to these packs, has been saving her empties for me, too. I am imagining how beautifully organized my printed artic. cards will look when they all have their own sweet smelling little containers. It's the simple things in an SLP's life!
