March Round-up: Home Management Binders
I’ve been thinking about and collecting supplies to make a home management binder for a while, but it’s always something that has stayed on the back burner because I thought it was going to be too big of a project for me to take on right now.
But, as I was decluttering some of the drawers in my office I found some great printables for a home management binder that I’d never gotten around to making and it renewed my interest in finally taking on this project. Since I am not an expert in this, I decided to round up some extremely helpful posts from some women who are!
So, you get a BONUS round-up post this month of 5 great blogs on how to put together a home management binder to get organized and make your life easier.
It’s a great way to harness the important papers so they don’t get lost in the junk mail!
