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
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.
