Operation Clean and Organize: Vol 13 – Home Management Binder Part 2

Taming the procrastinating, ADD, mess cat within me.

This is Part 2 of my Home Management Binder post. (You can read the Part 1 post about my daily planner here.) As I said, I divided my information into five categories/binders:

  • My Daily Planner
  • Main Household Management Binder
  • Meal Planning/Shopping/Pantry Binder
  • Finance Binder
  • Blogging Binder
Main Household Binder

For my household binder, instead of starting my own sheets from scratch, I turned to one of my favorite organizing gurus – Jennifer at iheartorganizing.blogspot.com and ordered her Family Household Binder Kit. I have already used a number of her worksheets in the past and have been very happy with them. I received the personalize cover and spine as well as numerous household worksheets and lists. (I blocked out our family name to privacy. ;-))

I purchased Avery Plastic Dividers with Slash Pockets (11903) and divided up my main binder into eight categories.

I already had a travel list made on my computer, although I haven’t updated it in awhile. (It’s been a long time since I’ve carried a separate video camera.) Here is a sample.

 

  • Outing Ideas

  • Favorite Places to Visit

For the places we like to visit often, in a plastic sheet protector I keep the place’s map, info and notes on things like our favorite spot to picnic or trails that are stroller friendly.


5. Books & Entertainment

  • Media Inventory
  • Library Log

I keep our library receipt in the divider’s pocket and in the log I keep track of how many books, dvd’s or mags we’ve checked out and when they are due back.

 

  • Book/DVD Check-out Log (Items we’ve loaned out.)

6. Holiday & Party Planning

  • Party Plan List
  • Holiday Gift Giving Worksheet
  • Gift Ideas & Notes

7. Pet Log

  • Fish Tank Cleaning Log


8. Blank Monthly Calendars

Okay, that’s all I have time for at the moment. I’ll post about my Meal Planning Binder next.
