A Home Bible contains handy information for quick reference and keeps track of household activities and corals other materials you may need to hold onto, but don’t know what to do with.


Where to Start

I made a home bible from a white 3-ring binder, some insert-able page protector sleeves, and some organizing separator tabs. My categories include takeout menus; reference – for items like trash recycling schedule and calendar of events; emergency preparedness, etc.


Items to include:

  • school calendar
  • address book
  • to-do lists
  • take-out and delivery menus, coupons, restaurants, and numbers
  • master shopping list
  • family health records
  • school lunch schedules
  • little league schedules
  • measurements, sketches and swatches of home decor
  • post office information
  • neighborhood information
  • disaster plan
  • theater seating charts
  • remote control and electronic device instructions


Other “Bibles”

I keep this binder in an area where I have similar reference “bibles”. I have one for craft projects which contains swatches, pictures from magazines, and art clippings.

I keep one for all the electronic or device manuals I need to reference every once in a while. I used to keep these in the home bible, but there are just too many and it was making that binder heavy and unwieldy.

And, I have one for all my Halloween reference materials. It’s like my Pinterest in a notebook. But Pinterest is more fun. I also discovered that the binders are a good place to store the decorative cling gels.
