Household Notebook Printables
Each family’s home management binder will be unique, just like each family is unique. However, there are some common parts of most organized family’s homemaking notebook.
Below is a pretty detailed list of items which could go into your household notebook. Not all of them need to, of course, and not all of them need to be created at once. In addition, if you actually were to put all these things in one notebook it would be huge and unwieldy. So these are just suggestions.
You pick and choose the ones that will actually help your family and home! There are also some resources on this site which can help you create your homemaking notebook, including a whole section of printables that you can use, as is, or tweak to fit your needs.( most of the Printables are freely available on the net , I have been using these printable for years ,I don’t remember which site it is though).
