Homekeeping Binder: Blog and Misc Printables

Today, we are wrapping up the third installment of the homekeeping binder series.  In part one, over on Every Day Cheer, we covered the calendar, to-do list, and important dates.  In part two, we covered all things that help our home run smoothly.  Today, we are covering work & the remaining printables that make up my homekeeping binder.

* All printables are editable in Adobe Reader.  Be sure to download fonts Century Gothic and Cambria Italic if you don’t already have them.

Homekeeping Binder Printables

First, I use the blank monthly calendar printable to keep track of my monthly blog posts.

Homekeeping Binder Printables: Home

Today marks the second day of my homekeeping binder series.  If you missed part one be sure to check out Every Day Cheer for the calendar & to do list printables.  Today, I am going to share the printables I use to keep my home in order.

First, is the list printable.  It can be edited so that it can be used for just about anything.  Pictured here I have used it as a shopping list and keep it in the pocket of my binder for easy access.

On the right you’ll see my important information sheet.  I wanted something that I could keep on my desk in case of emergency.  Or that my husband could go to in case I wasn’t home.

In addition to the important information sheet I also wanted something that, at first glance, I could find medical information to in case of emergency.

A babysitter notes sheet to keep on hand.  I don’t always remember to write out such important information for our sitters.  So, I created a printable that can be easily accessed in case of emergency.

I’ve also designed an editable blank calendar that can be used in a variety of ways.  I use it in the home section for meal planning.

This grocery list is one of my favorite things.  It’s editable so that you can list the things that your family typically buys.  I love being able to keep extra copies here and simply highlight what we need to bring home from the grocery store.

I clean & organize my home in “zones” each week.  For instance, one week I’ll tackle the kid’s rooms first, the playroom the next week, and so on and so forth.  I, of course, created a printable for that as well.
