What better time to set a household organization system in place than a week before the new year? According to Organized Home
, "Unlike a personal planner, which is designed for use by one person, a household notebook or family organizer serves as "command central" for an entire family. While each family's organizer will be unique, most are simple three-ring notebooks with several divider sections."
Want to make your own? Tackle printing out a few page dividers from your local office supply store and organize important paperwork like bills, daily schedules, calendars, phone numbers and contact information. A few suggested starter dividers are as follows:
- Planning Divider
- Phone Divider
- Family and School Divider
- Home Management Divider
- Meals and Menus Divider
- Personal Finances Divider
- Health and Fitness Divider
- Travel and Activities Divider
