But about three years ago, when I got my first iPhone, I stopped using my binder, and I began making lists and keeping up with things electronically. I put the Teux Deux app on my iPhone and iPad, and it also synced with my laptop. I used the calendar on my phone/iPad/laptop, and those calendars synced also. And, I don't know anybody's phone number anymore! Well, I do know 4: my parents' number, Jimmy's parents' number, his sister's number, and my friend Lynn's home phone number, except that she hasn't had a home phone number for years! (So that number is not even useful anymore!)
But I missed my paper.
So slowly, I have moved away from the Teux Deux app (mostly because I was informed that they were going to start charging a monthly fee to keep the app interactive.) I am not interested in paying a monthly fee for an app! I began using a spiral notebook again for my ongoing, never-ending to do list. I started writing my weekly menu plans on my paper calendar notebook.
But I still feel a little bit disorganized! I don't have a central place for my calendars and lists and menus, etc. I have papers hanging out of my calendar notebook. I find myself entering items on my iPhone calendar and also writing them down.
So, I am going to remake my Homemaking Binder. It's going to be a work in progress for a couple of weeks, until I can get it just how I like it. I have been reading about other people's homemaking binders online, and I am getting some new ideas. When I finish my binder, I will write a post about it and hopefully include pictures.
For now though, can you help me?
Do you have a homemaker binder?
What categories do you have in yours? I am looking for fresh ideas, because I don't want to leave anything out.
Please leave a comment with your bright ideas!
