Home Organization 101 Binder Review and TWO GIVEAWAYS! *Closed*

Congratulations to the winners, Debby @ Just Breathe and jenblizzard!!
With the holidays quickly approaching, it's more important than ever to get organized. Before I know it life is going to be even more hectic than it already is! When I was selected by Ashley at Sweetpea Lifestyle to review the Home Organization 101 Binder, I couldn't have been more excited-it's exactly what I needed!

The Home Organization 101 Notebook includes:
*Bi-Monthly Cleaning List/Monthly Cleaning List
*Daily Cleaning Schedule
*Fall Cleaning List
*Holiday Gift Planner
*Weekly Meal Planner
*Monthly Blogging Schedule
*Party Planning Guide
*Spring Cleaning List
*Weekly Cleaning/Laundry Schedule

The notebook comes as a zip file. You can print off the pages (as many times as you would like), put them in a binder and get to work being organized! It's set up to use as you see fit and you can even put the pages in sheet protectors and write on them using dry-erase markers/crayons to save on paper and ink!

I usually make grocery lists and use my daily planner, but for other things, I need a little extra help...like weekly meal planning! I can not tell you how long I've been meaning to start planning meals. Many days I'm scrambling at the last minute to get something together for dinner and I really don't care for that kind of stress. The meal planning page from the Home Organization 101 Notebook is going to be a life saver!

As I mentioned, these pages are set up to use as you wish. I put the page in a sheet protector and wrote on it with a dry erase crayon. I don't plan lunches, so I just crossed that part off. I love that it has a space to make a list of groceries needed to make the recipes in the meal. Very handy!
I DO usually make a list of people to buy for at Christmas, but having a sheet to go off of just makes it easier. I haven't written down gift ideas yet...I don't want anyone who is on the list seeing what they may be getting! ;-)

The Party Planning Guide is going to be great for the few parties that we have each year. My husband has an "Opening Day Eve" party coming up next Monday to celebrate the beginning of deer hunting season. I started filling out the guide for him, but it will be great to have all the party info in one place! This will also come in handy for the kids' birthdays!

I have only begun to use the Home Organization 101 Binder, but I can see it making life a ton simpler from now on!

I certainly need to get organized. I think writing it down might help me. I like the Daily Cleaning Schedule page.

Oh lord a little organization would be a God Sent.

I like the Holiday Gift Planner, I usually do it on a slip of paper that I loose ... lol

And the Meal planner would help with my meal planning I do.

Marissa said...

Oh wow, I need this! I'm not a very organized person. I have piles of paper laying everywhere, and with two small children it's hard to get everything done. I sure could use that daily cleaning schedule. Meal planning is something I keep trying to do as well! Thanks for this great giveaway!

Sadly I couldn't find just ONE page I needed... I need this just to get on track and then the daily and holiday party planner! I enjoy cookouts so this would be awesome to organize what works and what don't!

I've just been starting to think I need to make a weekly cleaning schedule -- it's great that this binder has it :D

(I have to admit that monthly blogging schedule made me laugh :) Sign of our times, eh?)
