Household Planner

(photos were taken from my other blog...)

I always love ways to get organized. I started out with looking for budget templates and then stumbled across an amazing website ' The Household Planner ' This website is an amazing resource for making your own household planner and getting your life organized...

I decided that I was going to put together my own household planner. I am not completely finished building the planner but I want to share with you this awesome idea to keep your life organized... from family budgets to meal plans :)

I love tinkering on the computer. I am a HUGE fan of Storybook Creator 3.0 by Creative Memories. I make so much on it, I do books, announcement cards and I made the inserts for my household planner. I like adding my touch to different things I make and that was my little creative touch.

Inside the planner I have a bunch of great things I have a table of contents I printed up on Microsoft Word. I did most of my templates on excel and I am so happy with the way my household planner turned out!

My table of contents has the following:

  2. sure, I will just have to dig them up :)

  3. Oh my gosh I am so excited I found your site! Just bought our first home and want to do a planner. However, I tied doing the download thing but I couldnt get it to work. Could you email me the planner?

  4. I just tried the link and it works... Once you click the link on my blog, click the blue icon with the arrow and word "download". Then a little box appears and says "Your download link will appear after wait" it will count down... once it is done counting down click "Download file now"

    Try that! if it does not work let me know I just tried it and it worked okay for me...

    Thanks for visiting

  5. I tried downloading the links, but it wouldn't work for me. I'm just wondering if you could please email me the planner. thank you...

  6. First, let me just say you're amazing! May God bless you!

    I am the mom of two beautiful special needs boys, and I desperately need to stay on top of things. What a great idea!

    I seem to be having similar problems with you link, unfortunately. I keep getting a message that the link doesn't work. :( Would you be willing to e-mail me too? Your planner is just what I've been looking for!

    Again, God bless!
