Home and Life Organized

Whether you’re looking to put together a home management binder, a planner, or both – you’re sure to find some of the posts below to be full of helpful tips and a variety of printables to help you create the systems that will work for you. 

Just simply click on the picture of the post you would like to read.


The Home and Life Organized series was published in October and November of 2016. Throughout the series we cover the basics of setting up a planner and a home management notebook.

I'm sharing my tips for how using multiple planners can help keep your home and life organized.

Planner Tips

Creating a planner is a great way to make sure you’re getting a tool that will work how you need it to. There are a ton of ideas and options out there. Even here on Scattered Squirrel there are over a thousand printables.

With so many options it can feel really overwhelming. The next two parts of this series help make it a little less so. The first walks you through how to pick a planner that fits what you need. The second is all about how and why a home management binder is a useful resource to create.

Choosing the right planner for the job takes a little thought, but it's easier than you might think.
The purpose of a home management binder varies from family to family. Here are ideas for what you can use yours for.
