One of my most favourite blogs, I Heart Organizing, held a challenge to get together a Family Binder.
It’s for all the important information that is needed to run your family, all gathered into one spot.
I love to organize, and needed no excuse to get on board!
For this challenge, she offered several free forms. Forms for finance, auto information, schedules, calendars, phone numbers…
I have also included 2 downloads of my own that you can get anytime:
Click here: a Freezer Inventory, and a Special Dates Calendar.
My binder includes forms for:
Important Phone Numbers
Special Dates to Remember
12 Month Calendar
Envelope to hold my Blog and To-Do workbooks.
So here is my little family of 5’s binder:

I bought just a simple recycled board binder, that I plan to Modge Podge one day.
I’m scared of Modge Podge. I’ve never used it, but it looks fun?
Then I bought some pretty coloured tabs. Because they have to be pretty!
I used a white paint Sharpie to label my tabs.
I’m in love with this pen.
I am relabeling everything with it! I even rewrote the labels on my Pretty Jars!

This is the Freezer Inventory that I created to keep track of all of our food in the deepfreeze.

This is the Special Dates Calendar that I created to keep track of all of our important dates, like birthdays & anniversaries. To download this, click HERE.
I needed a separate book for my Blog. It’s for all the ideas and stuff swirling around in my head. My head is always swirling. This drives my husband crazy. Crazy.
And I also have a separate book that I use for all the day-to-day lists and stuff to do. Because I need to write things down, and feel like I accomplish things when I get to cross them off!
Well, this system works for me, and keeps me sane. At least I think it does?
Thanks for stopping by!
Signing off. Happy Organizing!!
