Do you have a homemaking binder? Would you benefit from one?
My office is currently in storage since I am in the process of redoing the floors and painting. This is the little cubby shelf that I'm using in my husband's office temporarily. I have two notebooks along with a stack of magazines and a basket of supplies that I wanted to have handy to use in my notebooks and my planner.
This is the box with my other notebooks that I have stored away but wanted to have easy access to them. I started with one homemaking notebook. As I continued to add things, it became full therefore I divided it into other needed notebooks. My favorite notebooks are my seasonal ones since that I plan holidays and other things related to the season. It’s very helpful over the years to be able to find the recipes and crafts that I like to make. My notebooks are a mix of stuff I've typed, printouts, and magazine pages. I decorated my notebooks with papers that I had on hand and typed the working. The only thing that I purchased specifically for my notebooks is the notebooks themselves, a pencil pouch, and a few supplies that I didn't already own multiples of like scissors. I like to be able to grab-n-go my notebooks if needed.
I collected many of my supplies that I already owned for my pouch. I do like to buy notepads and sticky notes at the dollar store or thrift stores. I like to take advantage of back to school sales to restock my supplies, buy page protectors, and dividers each year.
