Home Management & Coupon Binder Updates

I REALLY have been working on my Home Management Binder, REALLY :-) Working on my HMB led me to "fix up" my Coupon Binder. I must say that I really, really, really LOVE my coupon binder! Well, my coupon binder looks great but my HMB is literally a huge pile that I'm waiting for to transform itself into the perfect HMB. I do however have a list of sections started, which are: Prayer List, Homeschool, Cleaning Schedule, Chore List, Homemade Personal and Cleaning Products and Holiday Preparation. Everything food related is in my Coupon Binder. My Coupon Binder is really neat, the cover is pictures of my family, the inside has a clear plastic sleeve that holds recipes I'll be using for the next two weeks (I grocery shop every two weeks) and my grocery list. Tape to the plastic sleeve is an envelope that I keep track of my receipts. We have a $400 monthly allowance for our family of five. Next I have pencil bag that holds a calculator, scissors, pens, highlighter, store discount cards and nutrition and price guides to some of my favorite restaurants. The sections for my Coupon Binder are: Price Lists and Menu, General Grocery (for manufacturer coupons that can be used anywhere), King Soopers, Vitamin Cottage and Whole Foods, Albertsons, Cleaning, Personal, Pets, Restaurants and Miscellaneous.

Now I told you guys my HMB was a work in progress, pray for me:-)

  1. I think this is totally a great job. I made my coupon binder after I read your first post about it. Now I think I will keep going just like you. Organization and accountability is the key to a good budget. Love it.
