Home Management Binder

I finally made one that I LOVE and that I’ll actually use! The sections that I use are: Schedules, Lists, Calendar, Recipes and Shopping Lists, Bibles Studies, Notes, Contacts. Within these sections are tabbed papers; especially in the Lists and Bible Studies sections. Here are a few pictures of it.

I really find that having a binder helps me stay on top of what I need to do. Also, if I’ve “called in sick” my husband is able to pick up the next thing that needs to be done. 🙂 Do you have a home management binder? Do you use a different system? I would love to hear about it!

S.H.E.’s Organized

DSCF2269OK, so I’m not the most organized person in the world and my husband would agree with that 100%. I’ve tried several different techniques. I’m thinking that the SHE (Sidetracked Home Executive) technique will work for me. It’s the Flylady notebook in a box! Here are pictures of my index card box. I also made myself a clipboard so that I can visually see what I need to get done and what has already been done. Moving the cards in the box might be sufficient enough for some people, but I need to see what I’ve done without having to look in a box. I need it out so that I can glance at it quickly to see what is next on my to-do list.
I have my morning and afternoon routines in front. Behind that I have my days.DSCF2270I have a calendar taped to the lid so that I can quickly see what day it is.  DSCF2272 This is the clipboard I made. At the top I have my to-do note cards clipped to the board. On the bottom I have my “ta-da” clip. Once I’ve done a to-do, I move it to the ta-da clip.DSCF2275
So, what works for you? Leave a comment and let me know!

Organization…

or lack thereof! I am the most disorganized person EVER. I hate cleaning, i feel like I don’t have any time…yet I somehow have time to be on the computer all the time. There is something seriously wrong with that. lol I NEED to make myself a schedule and FORCE myself to stick with it.

Do you have any suggestions? I feel like i need some sort of system, but I have no idea what works for me. If you have a system, tell me in the comments! 🙂
