Creating a Home Management Binder: Customizable Cover Page

On Tuesday, I introduced you to the idea of a home management binder.  I’m baby-stepping my way to set one up!

Of course, the very first step in making a binder is buying a binder!!  ;)  Right now, I’m just planning to use one I have on hand — although I’m still debating whether I want to buy a “pretty” binder.  I’m wondering if I would be more apt to use it!

I’ll think on that some more…for now, let’s begin!!

First, I gathered up some supplies.  Here are some to have on hand:

  • Binder
  • Hole-punch
  • Labels
  • Page dividers
  • Pocket pages

Next, I brainstormed a list of ideas for the categories in my binder.  I’m including a planning section, home section, family section, and blogging section.

Then, I created my cover page.  If you have a pretty binder, you probably don’t need one of these, but I’m filling mine out with my mission statement (adapted for our family).  I thought maybe the daily reminder when I look at it would be helpful and keep me focused!!

Due to popular demand, I am giving away my 2013 home management binder printables for FREE to email subscribers!  To get them, just go here and pick a subscription option.  Be sure to confirm your subscription through the link they will send you.  Then, shortly after you confirm, you should receive another email with the link to the download.  These will be available free through March 31, 2013.
