How to Make a Household Planner

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Making a Household Planner, Home Management Binder, Home Organizer, Household Notebook or whatever you want to call it, is easy!

You first need to decide what you want to include in your planner. The great thing about a household planner is that you can customize it! This is not a “One size fits all” type of thing, every household has different needs. A family with small children will need different pages in their planner than a single woman with no children at home.

Be sure to read What is a Household Planner? to see a list of possible categories.

Household Planner Materials Needed:

Lots of inside pockets - Fantastic!
Lots of inside pockets – Fantastic!
  • 3 Ring Binder – standard size
  • Tabbed Dividers
  • 3 Hole Punch
  • Pocket Folders (optional)
  • Page Protectors (optional)
  • Business Card Holder (optional)
  • Your Printed Household Planner Pages!

Get Your Kid’s Winter Gear on eBay Right Now!

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

snowman I just got a fantastic deal on a Columbia Vertex jacket & snow pants plus a Gap hat & scarf for my little guy on eBay!

I did not have any luck at garage sales this year finding winter jackets, snow pants or boots for my kids. These are items that I do NOT buy at retail prices, so the next place I look is eBay ( I  love eBay:)!

These winter items are cheap on eBay right now because it is the beginning of the fall/winter season!

I got the full set for my son for $39.50, plus $7.95 for shipping, not bad. In the full swing of the selling season, this set would probably have sold for $60-70 or more. If I remember right, I think I sold my sons set last year for $60 on eBay. (more…)

What is a Household Planner?

Monday, September 21st, 2009

If you haven’t heard about household planners, frequently called household notebooks or home management binders, they are very popular with busy women and moms right now.

It is similar to your daily planner or organizer, but a household planner is so much more.

It is a planner for your entire household, including all of the aspects of everyday life.

The Household Planner found on this website is a printable daily organizer for your entire household that you can download and print in the comfort of your own home.

Build your own customized Household Planner.

Get organized by keeping all of your important household information in one convenient place!

We are so busy these days, that it is near to impossible to keep track of the activities, deadlines, appointments, homework and so on, that are part of our every day routines. When you factor in cooking, cleaning, laundering, grocery shopping, paying bills, working from home or outside of the home, spending time with kids or the hubby…mom’s got a lot on her plate!

A Household Planner is like the busy woman’s personal assistant, it helps her to stay organized and on track. With a household planner, you can organize and keep track of all these aspects of everyday life, in one convenient place.

With the kids back in school now, it’s time for mom to get everyone organized and back into the normal routine of the school year.

A great way to get organized for the new year is to make one central calendar that will have all of your school related events and activities on it.

I would recommend posting the calendar on your fridge, on a central bulletin board or somewhere that the whole family can see and access it.

After the emotional day of sending my baby off to the all day Pre-K at the big school, I knew I had to have a special place in my Household Planner for my kids’ teacher’s contact information. (Just in case I have to check in on my little man:) I also included a section for coaches and other instructors information that we may need throughout the year!

Now all of these important school related phone numbers are on one easy-to-locate page in my Household Planner.
