My Home Management, Financial Planning, Recipe and Blogging Binders (VLOG)

I was organizing my desk this afternoon and thought it would be a great time to share a video update of each of my home management binders.

Below you’ll find additional video tutorials of several of my binders and some of the sheets I mention in the video.

    @Tami @ ThisMomsDelight.com,

    Mine became huge and I had neglected it for some time, but returned to using it because there were solutions to the “big” binder problem. For one thing, I shifted to A4 paper and binders so that they were smaller and easier to handle, plus I could use parts from commercially produced planners to break down the parts that were getting too big. Fiances are now tracked in a separate binder. My daily “to do” list is managed using my day planner and the “Homecare” binder. Meal planning and shopping are managed in a separate binder. I set aside time in the evening to deal with the next day’s things. I am at my desk, computer up and running, copy items into the calendar, check the menue plan for the next day’s needs and it all takes less than 15 minutes. I handle the email that arrived in the afternoon and early evening, do my nightly routine, have some quiet time, then go to bed. If you need more room, then add extra binders. If the binder was working for you before it go so big, then maybe you were using it for too many things that could have been separated. The “small format” binders are available at Staples, Office Max, etc. Get a photo trimmer to cut the sheets in half when printed. The hole punch can be purchased from Daytimers or Franklin planner. I have hadmy punch for over 20 years. Give it another try! What have you got to lose?
