A Home Management Binder is the perfect way to store important family documents and keep valuable information in one place!
Home Organization Binder
Years ago I was inspired to make my own home organization binder after visiting my college roommate. Her family had just been evacuated from their home as wild fires burned through their neighborhood. She showed me her family’s binder with all their important documents and some cash in the front pocket. She kept this binder handy so she could use it every day, and so she could grab it on her way out the door during an emergency. This binder brought her peace of mind in a time of pure frenzy! Here is an example –
During the evacuation, she didn’t have enough gas in her car to make it off the mountain safely. The power was out in the entire area and gas stations weren’t taking credit cards. (I never have cash on me!!!) Because of the cash in her binder she could fill up her tank and be on their way!
So grab all the papers floating around your home. Write down the information that is crowding your brain, and let’s get started!
