Custom Homemaking Binder Printables

How I Set Up Homemaking Binder Printables and how you can get Custom Homemaking Binder Printables

 I want to share with you some of the Custom Homemaking Binder Printables I use in organizing my homemaking and homesteading binders,  free for the taking. Check these templates out and see if they might be useful in your Homemaking Binder as you try to get more organized while managing your home or farm! Simply enter your email in the box below and I’ll send you a link to the printables (including all of my favorite natural cleaning recipes) so you can get organizing!

How I Set Up Homemaking Binder Printables

I put my Homemaking Binder Printables in a simple pocketed 3-ring binder with a plastic sleeve cover for easy cleaning, in which I keep a decorative coversheet. It’s very similar to how I set up my Homesteading Binder. 

The front and back pockets are used for storing scraps of paper for quick note-taking, writing down ideas, storing important papers or business cards that I’ll need to file later.

Inside, there are 5 tabbed dividers: Schedules,  Home Education, HomesteadingFinances, and my Home Business. You could also have a section for managing children’s chores, health, and nutrition, cleaning, etc. In the back, I have a folder that I 3-hole punched in which I keep magazine clippings for decorating or project (sewing, knitting & crocheting patterns etc.) ideas. All pages are kept in sheet protectors for easy cleaning if necessary. (Tip: I also print on both sides of the paper to reduce thickness/bulkiness of the binder.)

Schedules

My Schedules tab is most commonly used on a daily basis. However, I refuse to be a slave to the schedule. I use it as a guideline and outline for what I could ideally accomplish in a day. It helps me from getting too far behind on any one task so even if, say, for example, I miss one month’s organizing day because we went spent the day together doing something fun as a family, it’s certainly not as bad as if I let 6 or more months slip by. (Which has been known to happen!) While it doesn’t help me “get it all done” it sure helps!

Instead of having a cleaning day, I have found it easier to break up my household chores among Monday through Saturday. This eliminates having chores undone if something comes up on cleaning day. (And with 8 children, anything can happen to knock me off schedule!) This schedule is all on a Monthly Schedule page opposite my Daily Schedule page and is where I keep it open to all day.

My Monthly Schedule is broken down into 4 weeks, 7 days a week with Sunday being left blank for the Sabbath. To determine what week I’m on, I go by if it’s the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Monday of the month and I fly by the seat of my pants every couple of months when there is a 5th week to the month.

My Schedule

It looks like this:

Monday– Mopping;  Launder sheets 1st and 3rd week
Tuesday– Clean Bathrooms
Wednesday– Grocery & Menu Planning; Clean the fridge; Shopping
Thursday– Ironing; Scrub-a-Room (I have a schedule for deep-cleaning each area of the home once every 6 weeks.)
Friday– Finances; Window cleaning; (Septic Treatment 1st week; Dusting 2nd & 4th week)
Saturday–  Clean cupboards inside and outside; Monthly Chores; Lesson Prep
I used to have a daily schedule for both Winter & Summer which basically only varied upon whether I was schooling or gardening. I am terrible at sticking to these schedules! Ever since Bill started working from home, it’s been nearly impossible to keep. My daily schedule had a list of reminders of things I should attend to before retiring for the night such as any planning that may be required for breakfast or dinner the next day and arranging our chore chart system, etc.

Next, is a Yearly Schedule broken down into major projects according to month? A yearly schedule is really helpful for those tasks that aren’t done on a regular basis and therefore easy to overlook.

Check out how I set up my Yearly Schedule and learn to set up yours.
