How To Get Organized: Life Management Kit

by How To Mommy on 01.15.12

2012 is the year of organization at our house.

I’ve mentioned before our house always looks clean, but if you open a cupboard or closet you may find sheer and utter chaos.  I think it drives my husband to drink…

I started the year by purchasing two Circo 9 Cube Organizers from Target for the girls’ rooms to help organize the shoes, books and new toys that they received for their birthdays and Christmas.

When my friend, Kayse, from Finding Hope, offered me a chance to review her Life Management Kit to help get your whole life in order, how could I resist?!

Kayse’s Etsy Shop offers everything you need to make your own Home Management Notebook.  This notebook keeps all your managing tools in one place, from menu plans to cleaning schedules, to babysitter and emergency info!  It cuts down on clutter and makes for a streamlined household.

Her primary kit, the Life Management Kit, includes 10 ways to get started organizing your life:

Auto Maintenance Log

The auto log allows you to track the date, cost and provider of any auto service, as well as the mileage at the time of service.  This might make my husband remember to change his oil…

Cleaning Schedule
The cleaning schedule breaks your cleaning tasks into daily and weekly.  You can specify which time of day you complete your daily tasks and which day of the week you complete your weekly ones.  If this doesn’t get my laundry folded and put away on the same day, I don’t know what will.  🙂

Emergency Info
This is so great to have on hand in case you have babysitters.

Kids Daily Schedule
Speaking of great documents for babysitters, just keep a blank copy of this in a clear page protector, fill it out with dry erase marker, and you easily have the perfect document for babysitters day or night!

Master Project List
Use this list to help you remember all the projects you were planning to do around the house!

Meal Planning Calendar
This great document allows you to plan out an entire month of meals!  It may not be super fun filling it out, but imagine how great it will be the rest of the month when you don’t have to think about what to make for dinner.

Online Password Tracker
This is a great place to keep all those passwords we have to attempt to remember!

Perpetual Calendars (2 – Birthdays and Anniversaries)
You will never forget a birthday or anniversary again.  These handy calendars allow you to put all the important dates for your family in one place.

Restaurants and Take Out
Here you can document your favorite restaurants and take-out info, so it’s easy to make a decision on a no-cooking night! There’s even a space to mark if you have a coupon.

Spending Tracker

The spending tracker allows you to set a monthly spending limit and track each expense so you know where you stand.

Isn’t this phenomenal?  She sends you the PDF’s for each of these great sheets.  Once you print the pages all you need to do is fill them out and put them in a three-ring binder and everything is in one place.  Kayse even has a tutorial on her blog on how to make the notebook itself fancy.

If crafting isn’t your thing, don’t worry.  You can buy the entire Home Management Notebook in her shop and she will even customize it for an additional charge.

Luckily for one of you, you can win your own Life Management Kit.  Just follow the super easy Rafflecopter entry below.  The giveaway is open worldwide and ends January 20th.

I love the idea of the meal planner – I never seem to manage it on my own.

I need to be organized. I have a list of tasks and am in the process of making a weekly schedule, and have been since before the new year began. This offer sounds great!

I sure do need help with organization. As another entrant said, I have tasks, etc. in my head, but they don’t stay long enough to get them done.
