Use a Binder To Organize It!
I know it sounds very "old school" but sometimes that is the best way. What I like to do is get cute or fun binders to jazz it up a little. Having a household budget binder can be a downer. So why not make it a little more fun?
Speaking of budget, did you see the price tag on these cuties??? Amazing! Keep a look our for clearance sections. These were hanging out in the clearance section at my local Staples for only $1 each! I also was able to pick up composition books for 50cents each.
Get Set Up
One of my favorite quotes states:
"An ounce of action is worth a ton of theory." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here is where you need to take a bit of action. Take 10 or 15 min to grab that pile of paperwork and sort it any way you like. Maybe you need a binder for Bills or one for Things to get done or one for Coupons. Here are some ideas:
- Household binder
- Budget or Bill
- Manuals or instructions
- Toy warranties/instructions
• School information
Also, use those composition notebooks to jot down ideas, track business expenses, shopping lists or even just keep in the car for those random times you need paper or to write something down. Keeping memos in your phone or tablet is a great way to track things but there is something more permanent and real about writing it down. Like I said before. Let's go old school and get back to basics.
Remember, being organized can save you time and money and leave you feeling less stressed. So let's make your house a home!
This 3-ring binder over here
is one of the best deals I have found. Even better when you are an Amazon Prime member. Pick this one up and then decorate it! Let your creativity flow and you will be happier to use it!
Hope this helps you!
