So here it is.
These are the supplies i used:
Avery Ready Tab Index dividers 15 tab
A Three Inch Three Ring Binder
A Printer and Regular Copy Paper
Double sided Tape
And to help me in printing my papers and printable s i used Open Office. Org it is a free software just like Microsoft Word. As I go through my Binder i will give you all the websites i used where their are free printable s I Spent almost 2 Months trying to find the right printable s that would work for me and my family the thing is i will always be updating and re making my Home Management Binders until I find the right System or set up.
So for my first binder i Put my Cleaning Schedules and Organizing Planning sheets in the very front of my binder under the ready index sheet and before the first tab. OK and for my first 9 Categories and tabs i used the open office software and made up a category and tab sheet and used double sided tape on the four corners of the paper and taped it to my first tab.
( See The Photos Below ).
Here is the Main Category: CLEANING AND ORGANIZING
And here is my Sub Categories And the pages i put in them:
- 1st Tab Home Office: A page on setting up a well equipped office, A quick start room by room recipes telling me how to set it up basically and what goes where i use it with the last page too.A Complete cleaning check lists, A Paper retention guidelines what papers to keep and for how long page, I have Time Management tips in here too ETC.
