Post image for The Homesteader’s Home Management Binder Pages!

Working full time from home, being a full time homemaker, and a full time mom can be crazy. I have to stay organized otherwise nothing gets done!

I tried some home management binders and fillers. They all came with things I didn't use and were missing things I really needed to plan my unique lifestyle.

So finally I decided I needed to come up with my own. Something that would be filled with all the papers I actually needed!

The Homesteader's Home Management Binder is filled with 29 pages that will help you keep your urban or country (or even city!) homestead well managed. You can even use this even if you don't can or garden and you just want to organize your household! You will be able to keep everything in one binder so when you need something or need to write down some info you have it all in one place!

Here are the pages included:

  • A Full 12 Month 2013 Calender to keep track of important appointments
  • A Garden Planning Worksheet
  • A Canning Planning Worksheet
  • Weekly Cleaning Checklist
  • Monthly Cleaning Checklist
  • Daily To-Do Page
  • Gift Idea List & Planning Sheet
  • Vehicle Maintenance Log
  • Emergency Numbers Page
  • Birthday & Anniversary's Remembrance Page
  • Winter Prep Checklist
  • Summer Meal Planning Worksheet
  • Winter Meal Planning Worksheet
  • Full Page Checkbook Register Page
  • Website Username & Password Sheet
  • Grocery Shopping Lists
  • Monthly Bill Pay Worksheet

You can find out even more info about these binder pages on The Homesteader's Home Management page. Also on that page is a free detailed download on how to best utilize each of the pages included to make your lifestyle simpler!

WOW. Once again, you save the day! lol….I actually wrote on my daily daytimer to FINALLY get my home mgmt. binder together for the new year. I have been writing down the categories I want but it felt scattered. Now (thanks to you and your wonderful sense of timing!) you have literally saved me hours today. Although I am not a true homesteader (I live in Vancouver! lol) I am practicing for our future. Thanks again for everything – in the last year you have become my no.1 website.
Happy New Year! Tara
BTW I tried those oatmeal packets you sent me the info on – perfect.

Well I hope you enjoy my home management binder! And I think anyone can be a “homesteader” now matter where they are!

Your categories are great – I will tweak a couple of them just to better suit our family, but that will be much, much easier than starting from scratch! I think I now possess a homesteader-frame-of-mind or value system. Seems so much simpler which nowadays equals better! I have asked for canning supplies for my bday in April and I printed off all your canning pages. We are really hoping to sell our home in 2013 in order to better live the life we so desperately want to live. Your website is and will be my go-to. Thanks again.

Well good luck to you in the upcoming sale of your house. I know sometimes it’s hard to make that decision but I like what Dave Ramsey says about “Live like no one else does so you can live like no one else does.” !

I have lived with a binder/calendar for at least 25 years! When my daughter was born, I had it by my side and everyone thought it was funny until they needed a phone number, a date, or something! You have created something wonderful here!

I was fixin to use the code to buy your sheets but it says it is expired. It says it is good this week. Shouldn’t it work still? Or am I doing something wrong?


8 Merissa December 31, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Sorry about that, something went wrong with the code but I just fixed it now!


9 Ellie December 31, 2012 at 10:21 pm

Thanks! I can’t wait to get started with it!

I love my binder. It helps keep me organized.

Thank you! I can’t afford to buy a binder right now, but I have all of your printables downloaded. I am hoping to get a binder soon!

Love this! What a handy and helpful binder… Best of luck sharing this well needed information… Wishing you a wonderful 2013 ~Amy

I love the idea of using a binder to get organized like this. I’ve tried to do some of the same on my computer…but realized its just easier to put it all on paper. Instead of opening files and waiting for things to load, the binder idea is much more efficient.

I wanted you to know that I love this organization tool and got a lot of my friends on board with it. The link for it under organization tools doesn’t work though. It says page not found. I didn’t know if you knew this. I had to search this subject specifically. Thank you for all of your ideas. I love this site.

Hi Nora, we are currently re-vamping these Binder pages so they are not available right now. Thanks for checking!


16 Jamie March 3, 2015 at 4:04 pm

Do you know when the biNader pages will be ready again. I am really looking forward to getting organized on our Homestead this year

We’ve replaced the Binder pages for now with the Gardening and Preserving Journal. All subscribers to our newsletter can get it for free right now 🙂
