Last time we discussed the parenting section of your household notebook.  This time we are discussing the provider section of the notebook.  You know, the easy part :).

Personally, my notebook has some extra tabs in this section because I have both my money management in here, as well as meal planning which have quite a large number of pages in their own right.  I also have my Flylady (modified) zone cleaning lists, as well as seasonal chores.  I also have a list of what kinds of items go on sale during what months in there, too.

You could also have:

  • your work schedule
  • lists of clothing needed for each person
  • clothing sizes for each family member
  • cleaning to-do’s
  • cleaning recipes
  • shopping coupon codes/deal sites
  • menu planning/grocery lists
  • checkbook/financial tracking
  • bills to pay
  • items to fix around house
  • items desired around house (furniture, storage solutions, whatever bugs you when you walk around the house)
  • wish lists — for everyone
  • gift planning (Christmas, birthdays, graduations, weddings, showers, etc.)

What other items would YOU add to this section that would help you be a good steward in the areas of food, clothing, shelter, and financial responsibility?

    This is a great series! I’ve done posts before on my home management binder, but I like your idea of breaking it down. There is so much to cover in these! I have 5 binders that I use frequently: Home Management (for cleaning, contacts, travel, and family records), Meal Planning (menu ideas, recipes), Financial Planning (registers, budgets, records), Holidays (a major section for Christmas, but also with crafts and recipes from other holidays), and Business (I LOVE Mead’s Notebinder for this. It is a cross between a notebook and a binder – very handy). I enjoyed your post!
