Hello my name is Lacey and I am new to this site, therefore I dont know much about it...I saw this group though and knew I had to join bc I am an organizng freak!! My Fiancee' says that sometimes I take it over board but I dont think so hahaha.
I wanted to share my latest organizinational project:
I started with a typical binder (the size you use is up to you) and dividers..
I labeled 1 Finances, 1 Addresses and phone numbers/emergency contact sheet too, 1 Recipes to try, 1 Important information and the last 1 Random..
I did this to have everything that is very important in one place incase of an emergency, I can just grab it and go!
In the Important Information section I included My Fiancee's, my daughter and my birth certificates in protective plastic page inserts (I put everything in the binder in a plastic page cover to protect it and make sure it doesnt get ripped out!!) Also any medical information/recent records, my daughters shot records etc. by now you get the point.
For finances I printed monthly calendars to keep track of when things are due and the amount of the bill. I use a highlighter to highlight the bill once it is paid, so I know and my Fiancee' (if he actually ever looks in it) know that it has been paid and not forgotten.
Addresses and phone #'s is pretty self explainatory :) I printed the sheets out and also printed an Emergency Contact sheet..
Recipes also is self explanatory (although its not something "Important" its with the other stuff that I use and look at daily..
Finally the Random section is just that, anything of importance to me or for my family I put back there...although right now it just has DIY projects with the directions and lists of things needed for the project.
This has been such a HUGE help in organizing the tons of random sheets of papers, bills, etc. on my desk. I thought I would share this so other Moms can try it out and see if this system works for them!! (You of course can label the sections anything you want to, its just the point of the binder Im sharing)
ENJOY!!!! If you have any questions feel free to ask me :) Have a Blessed day everyone!!!!
