Household Binder Project {Part 2}

I have been enjoying the process of creating my own household organizer for my family.  I have spent a good amount of time printing some papers, but I have also created a few of my own.
I already shared about getting started on a household binder.  Next it's time to gather lists and papers you want to include in your organized household binder.  Most of these I have printed from some of the sites I listed where you can get free printables for your household organizer.  I shared a bunch of those free resources in the initial post for the the household binder project.

Once in a while, it's fun-or necessary to meet your need- to make your own pages.  Though there are cover pages available, I made my own.  I ♥ it.  And that matters!   I like that it's personalized for us, and it was really easy to make.

So far, I have also created a few pages of my own.
After creating the Monthly To-Do chart, I found this daily/weekly/monthly/annual cleaning checklist that I really like.  I will try it first.  You can view it below with the pretty blue circles and lots of Post-It notes.  On my list of things to do is to have friends over each month.  It may not be a cleaning task, but I think I will add it to the list anyway.

A note about the Post-It notes (ha!).  I like to really know with certainty what I want to write on a piece of paper before I write it.  Post-Its fill that need for me, as you can see.
I am definitely liking my binder.  All the items are pretty much in the binder, but for now it is not in its final stage.  Soon...

  1. This is one great binder, and better than one you could purchase because it is personalized with what you need. Looks great! FYI, I do something similar to the post it notes with divider labels, lol.

  2. I love how you used the post-its. I wouldn't had thought of that. Good thinking!

  3. I've toyed with the idea of making a binder. I'm in a book club right now reading Large Family Logistics, and the binder is part of that. I'm sort of all over the place which is why I don't think I'd use a binder and exactly why I NEED to use one.

    I've been meaning to say I like your new blog. I think you've done a great job with it!

  4. Hey Annette,

    I do see that we are working on this same project. {lol} Mine is here:

    I plan on creating a page on my site when it's done and I will add your link to your beautiful binder. :o) I just LOVE this project and your ideas as well.
