Basically a home management binder is a notebook containing all the information that you need to run your home and it can be customized in various different ways based on your household's needs. I have spent the past couple weeks searching the Internet for various printables to include in my notebook and arranging and rearranging sections based on what I thought I needed and would actually use. I have eight sections in my notebook: Calendar and To Dos, Birthdays and Special Events, Finances, Home Maintenance, Auto Maintenance, Cleaning, Emergency and Medical Information, and Contacts. I am really excited about my binder and I hope that it will help us stay organized and on top of things around the house.
So here it is!
|Here is the front cover.|
|The first page is a view of the week where I can write down events going on that week, to dos, and what we're eating for dinner.|
|Next is a calendar section where I can get a quick look at the month and the important events going on.|
|The next tab is for birthdays and special events. I plan to use the front pocket to hold invitations and any cards that I buy and need to mail out.|
|Inside that section I have a listing of important dates for all the months of the year. After those pages is a gift log so I can write down gift ideas.|
|I took the information from the finances binder that I made last week and just put it in the finances section of my household management binder. This is our receipt tracker.|
|Next up is our home maintenance section. It's not really complete yet, but I intend to put information about things we do around the house here.|
|The auto maintenance section has a log for each of our vehicles and I keep the receipts from any work we have done on the cars behind those sheets. I also put the brochures for two of the places we have used in that section for quick reference.|
|The cleaning section starts with my daily and weekly chore lists.|
|After that is a monthly, semi-annual and annual cleaning list. I also have found a weekly challenge list online to organize your house so I might print out that information and put it in this section too.|
