Last week, I shared my very first blog challenge (for May) with everyone: creating a household binder. I plan on creating this important binder to make things easier for me at home. It seems like I scramble around my house all the time looking for everything from menus to important numbers. So, this month, I am attempting to fix that issue, which will end up saving me tons of time in the end.
In my post from last week, I showed you the binder I was using and the front cover that I created in Microsoft Word. This week, I am starting on my first section: the finance section.
In this section, I have included (so far):
- extra checks
- deposit slips
- monthly bill planner
- account passwords
I purchased these dividers with pockets from Wal-Mart for around $4.98. Each
section will have one of these dividers for extra storage.
In the finance pocket, I placed some extra deposit slips, checks, and I plan on placing
stamps in there as well. This will make bill paying a lot easier.
Behind the divider, you will find my monthly bill planner. As I pay bills each month,
I mark off the ones that I pay. This is to make sure that I don't forget to pay one of them.

Behind my monthly bill planner, you will find my passwords log. I think this sheet
is going to help me tremendously. I have a hard time remembering
passwords, especially if my husband is the one that created the account. So, now I won't have to call him every time I need to find out some information that he created.

Next up will be the menu/meal planning section... Stay tuned!!!
