It took me a while to get my household notebook together. I thought and thought about what I needed and what exactly I wanted to keep track of in this binder. I knew menus and cleaning. It took me a bit to decide what else. So I wrote a summary of my average week during the school year and during the summer and came up with dividers for my binder. Then I searched the Internet (mostly pinterest) and found printables that met my needs and what I didn't find, I just made up myself in a word processor or spread sheet program. My dividers are:
Personal: All about me. My schedule, my workouts, my food diary, my prayer list, my spa tasks, everything about me.
Home: All about the house. Cleaning, maintenance, yard, garden, etc.
Kitchen: All about food. Menus, inventory, grocery lists, etc.
Kids: Their schedules, chore charts, growth charts, etc.
Pets: Shot records, vet info, meds, etc.
Husband: His schedule, chore chart, etc. ( I doubt this section gets much use!) :)
Crafts: Inventory, project list, etc.
Finance: Budget, bill paying, creditors, etc.
Family: Friday Fun Night, vacations, events, etc.
Misc: This is everything else that I didn't really need a separate divider for. Addresses and phone numbers, passwords, etc.
Next I attached a calculator and pen pouch with paper clips, pencil, and fine point sharpies.
I did buy 2 desk calendars from Walmart that were 8x11 and I punched holes. I bought 2 because I use one as a master calendar and one for just the kids schedule. They have their own section in my binder and they like to look at their schedules too!
What's in the Pot Wednesdays
Anything Can Happen Thursdays
Family Fun Night Fridays
Soup Salad and Sandwich Saturdays
I picked recipes and recipes ideas for each category and put them behind the dividers for each day. It has really helped me have a variety of food and not get stuck on the same old things.
I also have a section for favorites, desserts, snacks, breakfast, lunch, and side dishes. If I don't write it down I don't remember. So I write it down!
I would post links to all the pages I printed but to be honest as I was searching half were broken links and I didn't save any except the ones that were PDF files. So I can't really put a good list on here. I will tell you, Kidz Points has some great charts for kids, frugal living at About.com has a good list, and organized household has some good ones too. Pinterest has links to several but they are hit and miss.
