How to Create a Home Management Binder ~ Part 5 Cleaning & Projects

Part 5 ~ Cleaning & Projects
Welcome back to my How to Create a Home Management Binder series. With fall coming, it's time to start to pack away all your summer clothes and accessories. Therefore, I though it would be appropriate to cover my cleaning and project sections of my binder.
I have a few favorite printables for these sections. One of these comes from a favorite blog of mine, Pinch A Little Save A Lot. Bekah, the owner of Pinch A Little Save A Lot, has some absolutely wonderful cleaning printables.

You can find some more wonderful cleaning printables at another favorite blog of mine, New Bee Homeschooler. They have four different printables: weekly, monthly, spring and fall.

Part 4 ~ Meal Planning & Coupons
Welcome to Part 4 of the How to Create A Home Management Binder series. Today I am going to show you the meal planning section of my binder, as well as the coupon section. Now I have two parts to my meal planning section. In the first part I put the actual meal planner printables. In the second part I put my grocery/to buy lists. 
I use a few different free meal planning printables I have found around the web. The first one I would like to share with you is from Buttoned Up. It is a great meal planner with space for both writing in what you are planning to make each day of the week, plus a shopping list. I use this printable if I don't have a huge shopping order that week.

How to Create A Home Management Binder ~ Part 2

Hello Everyone, Well back to How to Create A Home Management Binder ~ Part 2. Today we are going to cover the next few sections in my home management binder. Keep in mind that everyone's needs are different. Therefore, what I have in my binder may differ from what you need in your household binder. These are just ideas to help you to start building your binder. Feel free at any time to add or maybe skip over a section if you find that it will not be helpful to you.
The first section I am going to cover today is To Do Lists.
My favorite lists are from Clean Mama. She has three different lists. These are the ones I use.

Some other to do lists I have found are from:

Just a Girl and Her Blog

I Love Organized Home

I Heart Organizing

The next section I am going to address is online account Password and Username Log
Here is the account password & username log I created. It can be downloaded HERE.
