Some of you may have heard of a Household Binder, or notebook, or folder
(whatever you may call it).. its basically a collection of important
information you need daily or weekly, that is very important, all in one spot.
Every home's binder will be a little different, since we all run our homes differently!
- a calendar
- a list of emergency & family contact info
- a catalog of bills to pay and passwords for online banking and bill paying
- a checklist of daily, weekly, and seasonal tasks
- a list your familys favorite meals
- a spot for coupons and flyers
- information about kids activities
- a spot for important business cards
Some familys may need othere things, and some only a few of these things,
but the convenice of having it all in one place is priceless!!
Front Pocket: Coupons and Flyers
(go through once a week to add new ones and throw out old ones)
(makes paying the bills so much easier, I always know what has already been sent and what still needs to go out just by looking at ONE page, no digging for bill stubs or hunting down reciepts to know what I have already paid)
Second Tab: My Familys Favorite Meals
(makes dinner time a breeze, looking at a list of what you know you like just seems easier than trying to think up everything you know how to make in your head at last minute)
Also, a list of my family members numbers and my husbands family members numbers.This is great for your own use when your child undoubtitly gets sick at 1am and the wont let you put them down, while your trying to look up the doctors number... You will always know right where it is!! It is also great for when you have a baby sitter, they will know all the emergency numbers as well as family members incase they cant get ahold of you and there is an emergency, or they just cant find the cereal :)
Fourth Tab: Calender
Hold all the months important dates!
Back Pocket: Kid Activity Information
This hold the information & flyers for my daughters Gymnastics & Ballet classes. (class times, prices, etc)
Well thats my household binder, it took me about 20mins to put it all together, and it makes My Life Totally Simple!
