I updated my binder a few weeks ago now that we are living in a home and I’ve acquired triple the house and double the expenses. I have added numerous categories and have taken out the ones I rarely used. There are hundreds if not thousands of free printables online, but tailoring it to meet your families needs is key! They all look pretty and nice, but I assure you that if it isn’t something important that you are willing to dedicate a few moments to each day, don’t waste the ink. Chances are, you won’t use it.
Here is what my binder used to look like (click here)
Here is what I’ve changed. I’ve upgraded to a 3″ from a 1″ binder.
- To Do
Ill be creating a landscaping binder soon now that we have done a lot of work in our yard and garden. Also, my fiance is an owner/operator in the oil field and we have created a company name to separate liabilities and expenses from our home. I’ll have three binders total when all is done and created. This keeps my mind straight, quick references at a glance, and allows me to be mindful of expenses and tasks that I want to accomplish throughout the week. I do still work a full time job and I commute, so this keeps my sanity!
More to come!
