Household Management Notebook - A simple plan to get organized

The Household Management Notebook is for those who plan to have an organized home.

Every part of your home needs some type of management so that everyone knows what's going on and so you know what is happening and what needs to be done.

A household notebook is really a family notebook with categories that span across all aspects of running your home. It is an easy and simple plan to get organized and with this tool under your belt, your home can be managed and under control! 

What's in the household management notebook?

The Complete Household Notebook  is my household management notebook,  filled to the brim with planner forms and organizational templates for you to use and print.

Inside the household notebook / planner, you will find daily and weekly printables, budget forms, meal planning forms, calendar pages, monthly goals and to do lists and much, much more. It consists of a set of E-books in different categories (for easy reference) combined into one! 

Some homeschooling families may want to use this household notebook to manage all the family needs and then add an extra tab to your binder or notebook for your specific homeschool planner.  If this is what you're planning to do, you'd probably want to view the Homeschool Planner DIY.

How the Complete Household Notebook is divided

This is a snapshot of how to simply create your own household notebook and how it is divided.

Use any of the household management printables which you find in the ebook. Print out whatever you like and whatever makes sense for your family.  Print off the covers and dividers you choose and either bind your new Household Notebook with a ring binder or use a three hole punch and place your pages into a file.

Store the printable pages behind the most relevant dividers and fill the planner with the details you don't want to lose or misplace.

Household Notebook Printables

Make the household notebook - step by step

  • Decide on the pages and the dividers you would like in your household notebook. See below for the complete selection of pages.
  • Add a yearly calendar page at the front of the planner.
  • Add  monthly calendar pages between your daily planner pages. It is good to print these on cardstock and use these as monthly dividers.
  • Add  the daily planning pages or  weekly planning printables.
  • Add some budget worksheets and family management pages.
  • Add your own cover page.
  • Print it off.
  • Bind your completed household management notebook either with a spiral binding machine or hole punch the pages and add it to a 3 ring binder. A spiral bound planner is a neat and tidy book; The 3 ring binder option allows you to add and remove pages more easily. It also allows you to add tab dividers.
  • Adding a clear A4 cover is recommended when binding. It adds class and durability.

Here are the sections you will have access to in the Complete Household Notebook: 

Calendar printables - 2020

Every organization planner needs calendar printable, so in the Complete Household Notebook package you will find a set of portrait calendar pages for 2020.

There's room for Notes, Goals and a To Do List.

Daily planner printables - for all the details

If you love having one page to cover every single day of the year, you will love this daily planner template. It has room for you to add shopping items for the day, specific goals as well as a small calendar box on each page. 

Plus checkboxes!  

Weekly planner printables for 1 week at a time

Some of you may just need a small amount of room to write in your weekly details - so in the Complete Household Notebook, there is a set of weekly planner printables for you!

However, I find it difficult to fit it in on one page and like to see it over a double page spread - so I have also created a weekly planner over 2 pages.
