Domestic Godess?

A friend of mine recently made a coupon binder. I liked it so much I went out and bought the supplies to make my own. Instead, it ended up being so much more. I decided to call it the “HH6 Manual.” Although I do work from home and this fall will be returning to college full time, I will also still be responsible for the home upkeep and the meals (which I am more than capable and happy to do). I made this binder in hopes to organize my day to day life a little more.

Supplies:
ð      Three ring binder
ð      Package of baseball card holders
ð      Package of photo holders
ð      Package of business card holders
ð      Dividers
ð      Supply pouch
ð      Monthly Calendar
ð      Scissors
ð      Pens
ð      Calculator
ð      Chore List
ð      Shopping List
ð      Page holders


The front of the binder is where my pouch of supplies are located. The scissors, pens and calculator are in it.


Then, I have a three ring hole punched calendar. The calendar is where I will put the menu and any appointments.


Following the calendar is the chore check list and the shopping list. The chore list can be found here on my blog, or you can email me at corkyswife@gmail.com and I will send you the word document I made. It took me several hours to make. I am sure you will have to make changes for your specific space. The shopping list is a word default. If you go into word, drop down to “new” and then type in “grocery list” you will find several templates. Choose the one that suits you the most and print it out.


After all of that is the coupon section. I divided mine into the way I shop. I am a bit weird, I don’t like the cold items to sit in the cart any longer than necessary so I shop down the aisles and then the outside of the store. My friend had her coupons divided by category to match the shopping list. Place and label the dividers the way you would like. Then put a couple of each (baseball, photo, business card) of the holders behind the dividers. Cut the coupons out and assemble in these.
