So let’s jump in, shall we?
The best thing you can make for yourself is a home keeping binder. I am obsessed with mine. I use it daily to keep track of everything in our life. I keep it all together in this cute binder from Target.
My home keeping binder is divided into four parts:
1.) Family Information. Here’s where I keep important information about family birthdays and anniversaries, our insurance policies, and emergency information.
About a year ago, I won a contest from The TomKat Studio and Clean Mama Printables where I got a great set of organizing printables, including this cute card and gift registry!
You can purchase these (and more!) printables from Clean Mama Printables here!
2.) Finances and Expenses. Here’s where I keep track of our budget, our bills, and have a register of what’s coming in and out of our finances.
I found these great financial organizing printables that include a bill log to keep track of all those necessary expenses…
(I also keep copies of all my bills behind this page in my binder!)
… A budget page for planning…
…and a register to keep track of money going in and out!
In this part of my binder, I also have photo holders where I keep all receipts, to ensure my funds coming in match my funds going out.
3.) Food Planning. This area is where I keep track of menu planning, organize my sales flyers and coupons and keep track of what’s in my freezer, pantry, and fridge.
I also keep inventory of what I do have so I never double shop.
I also keep shopping lists for different stores I frequent in clear page protectors. When we need something, i write on the protectors with dry erase markers.
4.) Cleaning. Here, I keep track of cleaning around the house with weekly and monthly checklists.
