How we live in chaos
When it comes to my daily life, I used to find that I spent a lot of time thinking things through in my head without ever making a note of what was important.
Eventually, these things would fall to the wayside because I would forget about them. It’s simply something that we all do.
Now that’s not always a bad thing but without acting on the changes each of us wants to make we won’t get anywhere, we’ll just firefight our way through the days, often stuck in the same routine.
Making changes to simple things and getting on top of them can really give you a sense of achievement and control, and can certainly help take the stress out of things in the longer term.
Which is why we have created these printables designed to help you get on top of all the chaos in your life at home.
Take the stress out of household chores
These household printables help you focus on the individual things that make up your day-to-day lives at home.
They are all different, but all equally important, and all deserve to be managed in a way that suits us without being forgotten about.
The great thing is, you can download and print these individually, finding the ones that you need for any specific household chores or tasks, and put them in your planner.
Better yet, you can download them in a bundle and make your own home management binder so that you have everything you need in one easy go-to location.
Simply print and go!
What is a home management binder?
A home management binder has so many different names. You might know its as:
- Home Management Binder
- Mom Binder
- Family Binder
- Home Planner
- Household Planner
They all aim to do the same thing – keep your home life organized and manageable.
A home management binder is a binder or planner that includes pages and sheets that help you organize your home life.
These could include general household chores and tasks to keep a home clean, family and friend information, emergency contact information, events and dates, little notes and reminders, meal planning, exercise, and health.
These planners are designed to make things easier and have what you need for home management at your fingertips.
Anyone can benefit from a home management binder such as couples, families, or even guests who come to stay or house sit.
A home management planner can also be made accessible to anyone in the family, so you might not want to include sensitive information.
How do I set up a home management binder?
When it comes to creating a home management binder, it’s a good idea to choose the things that are important to have a smooth and happy family home.
Home management means something different to everyone. Some people have a home management planner for themselves, for a couple, or for a small or big family.
So what goes into your home management binder really depends on your needs and the sort of household chores that you need to get on top of.
What is in a home management binder?
Let’s take a look at some of the things you can put in a home management binder:
- Household chores and tasks
- Health details and trackers
- Quick bill and finance information
- Workout logs and trackers
- Meal planning
- Contact list and friend information
- Garden planning
- Holiday plans/ideas
So now you have an idea of what could go into your home management binder, lets take a look at how to put one together.
What do I need to make a home management binder?
First things first, gather what you need.
- Planner pages
The first thing you need to do is source your home management sheets or pages.
There are various places around the internet where you could gather your pages or you could simply get all of them all for free right here.
- A folder/ring binder
You need somewhere to keep all of your pages together and safe.
You can use a ring binder or if you prefer something more compact then try out a planner folder.
- Hole Punch
You will need a hole punch so you can insert your pages into your ring binder or another folder you choose to use.
An organized binder is a happy binder. To keep your home management binder easy to use and easy to navigate, you’re going to want some dividers or tabs.
The best way to organize a home management planner is by categorizing it into sections that cover all of the household chores that matter to you, such as health, bills, meal planners, etc.
It might be hard to find dividers that are specific to your categories so I recommend printing custom labels.
You can find free printable divider pages that can be resized for use in a planner style or ring binder style. You can also find some simple ring binder dividers and some pretty planner dividers. Use a simple label maker or stickers to customize your dividers.
This is optional but I think having plastic pockets or wallets included in your binder is really helpful. You can store all sorts of important things in them and it also gives additional space.
- Stickers (optional)
People like to use stickers to draw attention to certain aspects of their planner and to help them plan easier. There is a great collection of free printable planner stickers on our site or buy bundles of them online.
If you want a super-easy way to start your home management binder then I recommend downloading the Household Planner. It’s perfect for beginners!
