Introducing The Family Binder! I am hopelessly disorganized and found myself stopping what I was doing a hundred times a day to answer questions. Whats for dinner? What’s Grandma’s number again? Does anyone know where the grocery list is? What chores am I suppossed to be doing- alright, that question has never been asked. So, the family binder lives in the kitchen where it is easy to look up all the answers to those questions. I keep all our favorite recipes in it along with contact information for family members, chore lists, family policies. ect. This would be really helpful if we ever had a babysitter too. In our “policies” section we keep those rules pertaining to how we run the house and how we discipline. For example, the little guy gets a 2 minute time out on the stairs for tantrums or acting out of control. He doesn’t get time outs for little things or he would live on the step! We allow PG13 movies with adult supervision and our sleepover rules, bedtimes, etc.. Under “To Do’s” I keep a running list of household items I need help with and pass it out on Saturdays rather than nagging about it. So spend 15 minutes today and put together your own family binder and maybe, just maybe you will have a few less interruptions while you are on the phone or in the bathroom!
