{Open Tabs}


 When I come across posts or ideas I want to remember, I frequently just leave the tabs open on my browser and keep adding new ones! :) However, it starts to get very cluttery - and here's the truth: I don't like to close the tab until I've done the idea or decided not to do it. But, let's try something new -  I'll list my open tabs here for fun and reference!

To print and do with littles: Humility Bible Study

Chocolate Chip Granola Bar Recipe I want to try!

Stargazing Chart to print: family night soon?

6 DIY Autumn Decorations for under $6 - great ideas here!

Dreaming of apple picking in a few weeks - can I pull off a cute picnic there?

This Thankful for Friends party - swoony!

Here are two songs I'm listening to on repeat right now:
Matt Redman: 10000 Reasons

Building 429: Where I Belong


Do you have any "open tabs" right now?

....and I thought I was the only one who had open tab syndrome! LOL
Now, instead of leaving them open in the same browser that I am working in, I open the page in a new window and leave the open tabs up in a separate browsing window. That way when I'm tooling around online I still have a 'clean' window free of tabs to work in.

I thought I was the only one that did this! That's so funny...I only have the one tab open right now as I'm on a netbook and it tends to slow things way down if I have too many things open...if you do any of those projects, I know you'll blog about them ;0)

hahahahahahahahhahahaha--Do I have any open tabs?!!

My approach is a little different--starring posts or keeping them unread, but the result is much the same as what you've mentioned.

Sara said...

Monica, can you pin those ideas on pinterest? That has really helped me clean up my bookmarks/favorites!

I was the queen of open tabs. My dad couldn't believe the number of open tabs I would have. Then I started using Pinterest for those open tabs. It is a nice way to organize things, but it isn't always easy to remember to go back and check them out. I love the Matt Redman song. We sing that at church. I also love Building 429. It is an encouragement to me, but I have to say that it definitely makes me wish I were in Haiti on days like today when Jeremy is there. I hope you have a great day! We are on Week 3 of school, and it is going well. My parents come to visit today for a 4 night stay. God bless you!

I forgot to say that I love making granola bars, but I have yet to find a good recipe. Mine crumble. According to your recipe, it looks like my problem was not using quick oats. I don't ever buy them, so I will have to put those on my grocery list. We love granola bars!

I love when bloggers share links! I have found many blogs I may not have discovered this way.

Those granola bars looks delish! I might have to whip some up tomorrow afternoon. :)

Enjoy your evening!

I love this! I must confess: I have left tabs open as long as two days. It drives my husband crazy. Love the DIY Autumn Ideas!

I don't know if this method of tracking open tabs will work for you, but I enjoyed looking through them. the granola bars sound so simple, and the parties are so beautiful.
I tend to do the same thing in my email inbox. My goal is to keep my inbox under 25 messages, which means that they are unfinished in some way.

Only 7 ;) I usually have at least 10 open, which drives the males in my family crazy. Must be why we women can get so much done.

Amy said...

I can'waiting to try the granola bars for school lunches. Also love the fall decor...makes me eager for cooler weather!

I have open tabs too. One time it kept me from shutting down my computer for over a month because I didn't want to close them. Ahhhh! I like pinterest, and I open pin my open tabs, but it's hard to go back to the pinned ideas...or remember them. Anyway, I do it all the time.

One day, I am going to start linking to my open tabs on my blog. I like how you did it! Fun way to share what you're learning, inspiring, and wanting to do.
