Do you have a Household Notebook?

I adore my household notebook! Use it really often at that! I was wondering if anyone else had one and if so, what does it consist of?

  • i have a card box...with number tabs for the days of the month and month tabs and index cards with EVERY household task from brushing teeth and making bed all the way to cleaning gutters and defrosting ceiling fan....each card says the task and how often it needs to be done...dailies go back behind tomorrow's number, weeklys go behind the number 7 days from now after it's done, monthlies and yearlies, etc...i love it. it keeps me on track...

  • I do not have one!!! I am jealous. I can't find one that I like. I am still looking though. I'm glad you like yours, they can be a real lifesaver!

  • I have an app on my ipod, "LucidLists" you can put things like defrost the freezer and set for every 8 weeks, I have all my re-occuring chores in there. If you don't get to do that chore it starts to turn brown, the theam of this app is a bananna So, green bananna are not ready to be done yet but brown bananna needs to get done soon. I can show my kids, we have happy bananna's no rotten ones! I put every little chore in there, it just keeps my on track..

  • In mine right now, I have an address book, I have a folder for each person in the house, I have my HUGE spring cleaning list in there. I sort of use it as a filing cabinet. With my son just starting kindergarden, he brought home papers that I was unsure what to do with (these were scores from testing) so I put them in his. I found tons of sites with printable things for household notebooks. The first one is Organized Homes and I used a TON of theirs. I love the style too :) Another good site for printables is My household notebook has been a key part of becoming organized and I LOVE IT! :) Thanks for sharing ladies :)
