The new year is upon us and in full force. One of the things that I like to do is organize my home management binder for the year. The verdict is still out whether I like a home management binder or not.
I’ve had it a couple years and have taken suggestions from other bloggers, but not all of it I have used. The advantage to having a binder is I keep everything in one place instead of finding different homes for them. If you don’t know me, I’m pretty
OCD, organized. I really fear for my husband (and myself) when I go into nesting mode. With getting a new house, there’s so many home improvements to do, and of course I want to get it all done by the time baby arrives, not to mention clean the mess that the previous owners made.
Let me give you an example of how lazy these owners were. They would paint around a picture frame instead of simply taking it off the wall. So there are different color rectangles in some of the rooms where they hung their picture. Now, I’m not one to bad mouth (although I am now), but I wanted to have a taste of the extra things that need to be done around here.
Wow, I’m really getting off track. Maybe it’s the hormones getting me all riled up from thinking about what needs to get done. ANYWAYS…
The home management binder. It’s a love/hate relationship. Every year I go through and see what I’ve used, what I haven’t, and what I’d like to add, and create new templates or throw away old ones. Sometimes I feel like having it is more work, and other times, I’m glad I can refer back to some of the information. One of the templates I use and will continue to use is my Monthly Budget Template and my Bills Template. I hope that my crazy organization obsession will help get you going in an easy way.
