This is what I’ve been needing.
This is the most important part of the Home Management Binder for me!
I have been forgetting things right and left — appointments, to-do’s, activities…
*sigh* I’m not sure if it’s just mommy brain or I’m actually becoming more forgetful!
Several months ago, I traded in my pay-by-the-minute flip phone for a pay-by-the-month smartphone, and I was convinced I would just keep all of my activities and calendar on it.
It hasn’t worked for me!
Especially since my husband doesn’t have a smartphone or use Google Calendar, I keep forgetting to fill him in on our comings and goings, so I need something right out in the open for all of us to see.
And that’s why I am excited about this! It sets right in the cookbook holder on top of the island in the kitchen — and everyone can see it and add to it!
First of all, it includes places for appointments, to-do lists, AND our daily menu. I can keep it all together!
Next I added our daily cleaning schedule:
- Monday: Bathrooms
- Tuesday: Bedrooms
- Wednesday: Shopping/Errands
- Thursday: Kitchen
- Friday: Living Areas
- Saturday: Planning/Goal-Setting for the next week
- Sunday: Coupon clipping and sorting + filing any paperwork, bills, etc.
Of course, I clean the other areas during the day! These are just the focus areas for each day of the week, so they get a little extra attention (floor scrubbing, sheet changing, pantry organizing, etc.).
I also put my weekly Motivated Mom’s planner right behind each week’s schedule, so I can remember to do those extra projects, too.
The checklist also includes a place to record whether you’ve finished a daily Bible Study, exercised, taken your vitamins, and drank your water (I’m keeping a tally and checking it when it’s complete).
