One of the things that I use on a daily basis is my home management binder. It contains my weekly planner and all of the information that I need to access on a daily basis.
A home management binder is not a new idea. However, it can be helpful to keep track of anything and everything home related. It helps to keep relevant information in one useful place that can be easily accessed and will be a valuable, go-to resource.
