Let’s cap off organization week with a giveaway, shall we? When Monica, from etsy shop Print and Organize, contacted me about her personalized household binders, I was all over it. These personalized binders are sent to you digitally as printables, and you receive 22 sheets that include things like yearly calendars, to-do lists, house cleaning guide, bill payment checklists, etc. Having all of those important documents and information in one binder is so smart, and having it look so cute? Well that’s just the cherry on top.
Monica sent me a set of printables so that I could see what they were like. I giddily sent them off to Staples for printing (I had them printed on sturdy cardstock and in colour, costing me less than $8). Once I got them back I put them in this green binder full of recipes I already had sitting in my kitchen.
Just an FYI in case you’re wondering, we didn’t officially combine both of our last names into one looonnngg last name… I just kept my name so had to represent both on our binder!
What I really liked about this binder is if you are having people house-sit, pet-sit, or babysit your kiddos, you don’t have to write out all of the critical info for them – everything, including emergency contacts, is all in here.
One of the other printables that I particularly liked was the monthly menu planner. We try to write up our weekly meals (dinnertime only) on our kitchen chalkboard, but sometimes they get so repetitive. I took a moment to fish out our favourite recipes and jotted them down in this monthly menu planner. We won’t stick to it as a day-by-day thing, but we’ve been pulling it out to choose our 5 recipes for the week.

Congratulations to giveaway winner, Anne, whose organization tip is to deal with paper as soon as it comes into the house – she files and recycles before it has a chance to build up. Have fun with your new household binder, Anne!
