Organization Binders

DropBox download added/Updated Photos Dec. 10,2012



How the Binders are Organized

Here are a few FREE PDF's of the templates I made to use inside my binders. Please check back as I will continue to update this list as I design more pages ;) I’ve added a DropBox download option since so many had problems with Google Drive. You can download all the files in a ZIP file from Dropbox HERE

Binder 1: Family  

     -Family    
  • Calendar, Wal-Mart sales cheap desk ones that are the perfect size (I have since stopped using a calendar in here and instead use a pocket calendar in my purse, that works better) 
  • Important Dates
  • To do ( use this as my long term to do list, fix the driveway, table in laundry room, for daily to do’s those go in my pocket calendar)
  • Medical Information - I didn't use this in my binder because of the personal information but wanted to share in case someone else could use it
   -Travel
   -School
   -Shopping
  • Grocery list (PDF is finally available! It is our common items so not sure really how useful it will be, but may be a good guide to recreate your own)
  • Bulk Menu Planner  -This is basically most of my common meals and I calculate up the bulk amounts at the bottom. Nothing fancy, but maybe it's a good guide for someone to recreate their own.
  • Menu Planner - I simply put my meals on a calendar template. I do use highlighter to mark meats, produce etc for easier bulk calculation. This is just to use for an example of how you could make yours. I do not have recipes. 
  • Coupons ( I use baseball card sleeves to organize them)
  • Things to look for while shopping (This is another long term list, anything I’m interested in but want to find at a good price, not necessity items like food or diapers…..ex: an acrylic tray or porch swing cushions)
  • Recipes (Still working on this, check backs soon!)
  • Wish Lists
  • Take Out Numbers (Dining Out)
  • Freezer Inventory

Binder 2: Finances

  -Finances

  • Bills ( I also keep a list of bill due dates in the front of my pocket calendar)
  • Budget (Laminate and reuse with dry erase markers!)
  • Register (We use the Dave Ramsey Cash system (with individual registers for each category) but this binder register is great for keeping up with bank account’s balance and marking down future bills to be prepared for (school year book or quarterly garbage bill)
  • Bills Due/Envelopes/Checkbook (keep these in the snap pocket plastic sleeve)
  -Taxes
  •  Taxes ( I keep up with each expenditure that comes in throughout the year which we can deduct on our taxes, this saves me from that end of the year headache of digging through piles of receipts)
   -Home/Auto
   -Contacts

Binder 3: Fun   

   -Blog
  • Posts to post
    -Home Planning
  • Projects
  • Dream home (just a bunch of sketches, magazines pages, paint samples)
    -Craft Projects
  • Current Projects/supplies needed
    -Fun
  • Movies to Watch
  • Books to Read
.............................................

Page Previews

Binder 1 is for keeping up with the family, Binder 2 is for all the important stuff, Binder 3 is just for me :) I chose not to include anything in my binder that I would be very worried about if the binder was lost (SS cards, marriage licenses, birth certificates, account info, personal info etc). I did this because I wanted to be able to take the binders with me on the go and not be stressed over losing something. Also, I prefer to keep important documents in our safe in case of burglary or fire (see bottom of post for my safe filing system). Unlocking a safe every time I wanted to use my binders just didn't make sense to me.

Drop Zone

My binder cabinet :) This is why I didn't want any important documents in my binders, they are too pretty to be shoved in a safe! Here is a link to all my Drop Zone features!

_MG_1095[3]

*Updated tabs since Photo*
I keep a Hanging File Folders with a section for Temp Receipts (for possible returns or limited warranties), To be filed (paperwork that I need to file long term in the safe, tax papers, statements etc.). I also decided to remove my Incoming/Outgoing mail and instead made a file for each of my tax receipt categories (Medical, Business, School etc.) It was a bit of a headache to constantly have to re-sort these receipts when they were grouped in with my “To be Filed” stuff. A few changes just to streamline my filing system.
.............................................

How the inside is organized


I used these Tab Write-On Dividers to break up all the major sections. Then used card stock to break up the smaller sections inside the tabbed dividers. I simply ran them through my Epson Printer to print the section titles on each divider.

_MG_2397

I used my Labeler Machine to print labels for the tabs.

_MG_2398

Here are the individual sections printed on cardstock, probably not necessary but it does help to catch the cardstock while thumbing through, saves a bit of time.

_MG_2399


There is a Plastic Pocket behind every tabbed divider to keep temporary papers (receipts, bills etc)



20120528-_MG_0644

I placed these Snap Envelopes in each binder for bulky items (pencils, calculator, checkbook, etc)



.............................................

Long Term Storage



This is the filing system I use for long term storage, important documents and just any paperwork I want placed inside my safe for protection. The box I use can be found here: Set of 2 File Boxes

_MG_2389-1

I have tabbed Hanging File Folders and inside each file is an Envelope with individual categories. I absolutely love this system. It saves space and is so easy to keep up with. Yes, it was a bit of work to organize it but now I can find and file things faster. It’s a breeze even to send my husband in to look for papers where before he could never locate anything.

_MG_2391-2

I intentionally chose a smaller box. By the end of the year it is pretty much packed (like the below photo). I then go through and clean out all the excess or expired papers and it leaves me with the perfect amount of space for the upcoming year. I don’t hold onto every bill or scrap of paper….. only the most important things. Depending on your family size a bigger box may be needed, this one works perfect for my little family of four.

_MG_2392-3

  2. Love this, I really do. Unfortunately having a paper copy of most of this is a moot point anymore. I utilize bento for the iPad to organize most of my information. But bills/fiance, however, I still do on paper.

    1. To a point. If you lose power - tornado, hurricane, fire - accessing online or electronic emergency information is impossible. Grabbing a binder when you run out your house is a life saver. BTW, bills/finance on Quicken or similar is the way to go.

    2. First I want to say; Wow! I will definitely be using a lot of the things
      you've shared. Thank you.
      I'm a quicken user too; faithfully. I also like to be organized so I can
      find all that dreaded paperwork quickly.
      Although I do know all too well how much time you have running
      out of a burning house.
      First thought; my little girl. "Go with Grandma,
      I'll be there in a minute!" Next thought pictures. The handful of
      albums I did get, I lost when the propane tank blew and sent me flying
      down the stairs. Long story short, everyone was safe.
      Husband was wearing nothing but his wedding ring. You really don't have time
      and thinking rasinally; not. My plan now is:
      Backup your quicken, pictures, scaned documents, important stuff; insurance papers,
      etc, on your computer.
      Then every couple of weeks back it up to an external harddrive, that you keep away
      from your house. I keep ours in our camper.
      Just remember it might take a bit to get organized again but you will,
      our family did and we lost everything. Except the most important,
      family.

  6. Meaghan- Can you open other Google Doc files fine? If not it may be a java issue or browser plugin, etc. I'm not 100% sure but the files are rather large, I'm afraid I couldn't get them to go through email sorry! Hopefully some other commenter can help out who is a bit more tech savvy than I ;)

    2. Studio C Carolina Pad "Simply Chic". I tried to locate them online before for the post and didn't have any luck. Carolina Pad lists some of their items as "Select Retailers Only", I'm guessing that's how they are selling these binders. http://02ca560.netsolstores.com/studio-c-simply-chic-ideal-book.aspx

  12. My binder like this also has a page listing the dates to display our flag, a pocket for all those little plastic tags that come with plants from a nursery, and a reusable sheet for the babysitter that has all the information she needs that particular night. It's a lifesaver! I love my binder!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great ideas....however when I click on the PDF's, all it does is take me to Googles My Drive.

    ReplyDelete
  14. My best advice to anyone having issues:

    Make sure you have Adobe Reader installed to view PDF's.

    Also, I'm getting notices that "too many people are trying to view files". Since there are so many hits on the files, some may need to attempt to view at off times (late evenings, early morning) in order to get access.

    I'm not sure what else to suggest. When it comes to anything technical I'm clueless :) I do know that interest in these files has exploded this week (went viral on Pinterest), so maybe in a couple weeks there won't be so many trying to access the files and hopefully there will be less problems opening them.

  38. I have had similar grocery, shopping, and meal planning lists, but yours are very pretty wile mine are simple word files. I would love to use yours but I cant seem to edit your files. How did you make them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The files are non-editable PDF's. They were originally designed in Adobe Indesign. Most readers will not have access to this program due to the cost and I prefer not to use Microsoft Word because the content tends to display differently from computer to computer. PDF files are more compact and most will have no problems displaying and downloading them, however the flip side is unless you have the proper programs (adobe acrobat, photoshop) they cannot be edited only viewed.

  42. I have been trying to get the pdf's to work but I keep getting diverted to Google Drive. I love the idea of your documents but I don't want to download another program. Can you why I can't get them without using this program.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You won't have to download a program..... I can even open these files on my iphone. Make sure you have a PDF viewer, maybe disable any pop up blockers. You could try another browser or computer too. Some have needed to sign into their google accounts first. Or your virus program could not be letting the webpage run properly. But I do know that you don't have to download a program to open the documents. You simply view them on Google Drive (because that is the site hosting them for free) via the link and it has the download option.

  43. Thank you so much! This is a great way to organize~ Now i just need to figure out how to budget! My dad recently passed away and im helping my mom with paying bills online (which she has never done) so the bill pay is great and a great way to keep records! i cant wait to see more!

    1. We use online autopay on most our bills, love it. Though I had a hard time trusting it until this past year, finally got tired of buying checks and forgetting to login to pay :) Nothing like a few late fees to make you try something new! But aside from a basic budget I highly recommend Dave Ramsey's system, it's simple and definitely will save you money (if you're looking for a future planning/debt relief type budget system).

    Replies
    1. I'm not familiar with a way to allow you to edit/type directly on a PDF without Acrobat, Illustrator or Photoshop, both of which are programs most won't have available to them. However, you should be able to "Import" the files as a photo or background image in some programs and type over the image (hope that makes sense).

      Delete
    2. It requires some real learning and a copy of Adobe Acrobat, full, not the Reader, which is free. Even then, you can create the type-able form, but you can't SAVE the data in that form easily. Adobe stinks. Ugh

    3. I have seen PDFs that are editable through Reader (the only Acrobat I have). They are pretty basic, but [somehow] it can be done :). I'm loving your examples btw! I'm doing my best to start being more organized and budget-conscious and these resources will help tremendously! Thank you!

    1. If you have word or publisher try to Import the PDF as a image or background. Then type over the file. Hopefully that'll atleast let you add new information. If you have access to any adobe software (Acrobat or Illustrator) those usually break down the PDF's and let you change things up.

  50. I love this. We use MANY file folders for TONS of things (somewhat of a hoarder in the fact that I am so fearful of our government I think I must keep all bills, taxes, etc - has come in handy once) A binder (or 2 or 3 or 4) would be nice and compact if I could fit it all in. The only thing missing for me would be to modify the house maintenance to also reflect our rain water filters (we have to change 1 yearly, 1 quarterly and 1 monthy and sometimes I forget when we last changed the most recent on.) But as with everything I can use your awesome ideas and make one that fits my needs, as you mentioned. Thanks for another great resource!

    1. I understand completely, a few years ago I kept every scrap of paper that came through the door. After working with our accountant she has helped me pair down the "need to have" paperwork, also I didn't have a choice since I needed to be able to fit everything into our safe for fire protection. But for our family business because we need to keep so many documents for so many years they do digital filing. Use one of those "neatdesk scanners". They save the files locally on drives, back up on externals and also have it all backed up on one of those off-site storage places. Might be something to consider if you ever feel like the paper is taking over :)

  55. This looks great, I tried a home binder before and it didn't work for me, I want to try again with some of these now!! Also, I do believe you may only write off repairs made to your house DURING the year it sells in, UNLESS it is a rental property, then it is considered maintenance OR is the improvement falls under government guidelines for eco-friendly update. We recently sold our house and this is what we were told, just thought I'd let you know.

    Replies
    1. They are very thin lines so if you're using a desktop printer make sure you've ran a test run recently and adjusted/cleaned your ink heads. I had problems with my Epson 1400 at first, it wasn't printing some thin lines. Ran a test page and followed the calibration steps and it printed perfectly. Also, your printer might be downsizing the document prior to printing, I've had thin lines disappear because of that issue also, it needs to print printing at 100%. Hope this helps!

  57. I love all of the great ideas! Here is another suggestion, I have medical binders for each person in my family. I always ask for copies of any testing (ie. bloodwork, ultrasound, mammogram, etc) and also get copies of any correspondence from one doctor to another. I take the binder to any appointments that I have so each doctor has all information at their finger tips. This is how I have our set up:
    -Each family member has their own color 3-ring binder which has a pocket on the inside cover.
    -In the pocket we have a typed page of any doctors that that person has seen including their name, specialty, address, phone number, and directions to their office.
    -I used traditional binder dividers one for each of the following topics:
    -Notes (has filler paper in this section to keep notes on doctor visits)
    -Tests (include copies of all testing and correspondence of doctors)
    -Immunizations (any shots that are received and the date)
    -Information (Any information that I have obtained via research on the internet, newpaper, magazines, etc pertaining to any medical condition that pertinent to us)

  62. I posted about my Life organizer on my blog. Everything basically goes into there except my blog stuff and couponing/menu planning stuff. I created my own recipe book to put recipes in page protectors as I find recipes that I like. I plan to make a post about my coupon binder but it's also separated by categories and organized in baseball card sleeves as well. My blog stuff I organize on my gmail calendar actually. It's easier to color coordinate and move around compared to on paper for me. There's also a task list on there where I put my blog topic ideas and i just add it in the online calendar where I want to eventually and it crosses it off the task list. here's the link so you can see my binder. it isn't fancy but it works for me (http://chitownandallaround.blogspot.com/2012/07/my-life-organizer-includes-2-free.html)

    1. I don't have them posted anywhere. The things we eat are very simple, usually meat and a few sides. So I either cook my bulk meat purchases as soon as they come through the door, then freeze in the correct portion sizes to reheat later. Or some meats I prefer to just marinade and freeze until ready to cook. That's about as fancy as my bulk meals get :) I tried doing entire meals frozen but found that the taste just wasn't very good for most of the foods we like to eat.

    P.S. When you are doing your meal planning, and your shopping budgeting... how often do you shop? Do you shop separately for your bulk items vs every day stuff? How do you break down your budget for shopping? Sorry if this is too much info... you could also email me back... if you have time... thanks so much!

    1. I would love to say that I am super organized in the grocery and meal planning section but it would be a lie ;) I usually grab the items we run out of often (fresh fruit, milk, juice, bread) after I drop my daughter off for school in the morning. It's just easy to swing by our local marketplace.

      For the routine, stock the pantry shopping I will usually run out after gym late at night to a supercenter, this way the kids are in bed and I'm alone and can think. Usually I have to every 7-10 days.

      I really only bulk shop for meat. I tried the once per month shopping and about had a break down, never enough of an item was in stock, two buggies and tons of food to cook with toddlers under foot....just didn't work for us. So now I usually try to make a run just for meat whenever we have the extra money and I have the time to prepare it, about 1-2 a month.

      I have a set amount of money put aside each month for groceries, everything comes out of that. If we get a little extra income in I might use it toward stocking up the freezer. It's to the point now where I've been shopping for my family for so long, at the same stores, we eat the same items routinely so thankfully there isn't much thought that has to go into it. We buy mostly store brands, bulk items and just cut out all the unnecessary junk items, this allows me to stay in budget without having to coupon. I hate grocery shopping with coupons. I'll use them for clothes or other things, but it was nothing but a headache for me when I was trying to buy a buggy of groceries with coupons. But I applaud all the people who are willing to coupon and save that extra, it's a lot of work!

    1. Yes, category. I used to be an avid Quicken user so having a category is now ingrained in my budgeting. Also using the Dave Ramsey system we have limits in each category so it helps me quickly breakdown where our money went and how much is left in each category to spend.

  90. I made a binder of a different sort. I used page protectors to store all birth certificates, social security cards, car titles, insurance policies (medical, life, auto and home), and other important documents. I keep this binder in the front of my file drawer so that in the event of an emergency, I can grab it and run and have all of our important documents at my fingertips.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Here is a suggestion for anyone having a hard time opening the document - when it opens in Google format click 1. File 2. Download and it turns into a PDF.

    I know the Google interface is weird for those who haven't used it before and if they save the file and right click they will be able to select the software they want to view the document.

    Good luck and thanks!

  101. These are great lists, thanks! I was reading your Grocery list PDF and noticed you have listed pancakes, muffins, and waffles. Those are common breakfasts in my family as well and to save money on them (since they are ones we eat a lot), I make extra of each whenever I make them and then freeze them. The muffins you just pop in the microwave for 10 or 15 seconds to thaw; the pancakes take about 30-45 seconds; and the waffles you can do in the toaster or microwave. That way I don't have to buy the frozen waffles or pancakes from the store.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I do the same thing! I bought the pre-packaged frozen pancakes one time about 8 years ago and it hit me while microwaving them "What in the world are you doing honey, these are just cooked pancakes thrown in a bag for you to reheat!" I remember as a kid my mom making the waffles ahead of time and freezing them, I keep saying I need to get a waffle maker bc those were the best :) I've never frozen the muffins, how do you store them? In a bag or wrapped individually?

  112. Hi! Thank you for your .pdf's and organization ideas. I have been meaning to get organized but haven't found a system that will work for us until now. I already have a "home binder" and will be adding your ideas to it. I have in mine things for my house that I would need to know if I went shopping (room dimensions, paint chips of the wall color with receipt from the store I bought it from, the picture from our comforter set, China pattern, area rug dimensions, pictures of some of my furniture.) I have it separated by room and have a few plastic sheet protectors to keep small items in (receipts, paint chips). That way if I'm going out to buy something, i know exactly if it will match/fit the room. I also include items that I would like to buy for each room so I dont forget about them.

    1. I keep anything from the bank and anything from work. Also, I hold onto all medical paperwork, car papers, Loans, Mortgages, Selling/Buying Houses, Construction papers and insurance papers. All our personal paperwork SS, birth certificates etc etc. After 2-3 years I will usually purge quarterly statements from car, insurance, etc.). I tend to hold onto bank transaction statements though that show our debits/credits. I think you're supposed to keep all files for 7 years, 13 if a business? but I will be the first to say that anything older than 5 years usually gets shredded if I don't feel its high priority. Regular monthly bills once paid all the extra paperwork gets shredded. I don't hold onto receipts unless temporarily for possible returns or for tax/insurance purposes (though Amazon and the like has spoiled me by always being able to pull up transactions from years and years ago) so honestly I am a little lazy in the receipt area as well. But yes all this is in the black box. All our taxes are pretty straight forward, if we ever had any weird deductions or did our taxes ourselves I would probably be more careful about keeping the paperwork but our taxes are as boring and vanilla as they come. For anyone who does their own taxes and especially if you have out of the ordinary deductions, especially anything not easily traceable be careful to keep all your paperwork since that tends to be where the audits fall. Hope this helps!

    1. The original files are made in Adobe Indesign, it's not a common program that everyone will have so that's why I offer PDF files instead, not to mention Indesign files are very large and would eat up all my Google Drive space quickly. If you do by chance have Indesign you can "place" the PDF on a page and create text boxes over the areas you want to type in. The same goes for Microsoft Word. If you have Photoshop you can open and type over the lines also. Now, I'm not sure if you can type using Adobe Reader or Acrobat (what the PDF files usually open in when clicked). All these options won't allow you to edit the document though. However a well placed white box will cover the old text allowing you to type over it and replace with your new text.

    I also have binders with clear plastic sheet protectors in them that I use to store the paperwork/manuals for appliances and electronics that we own. I've got them sorted into several binders and it's an easy way to locate the manual or installation instructions for those items that you own and use. I'd like to take credit for the idea, but my dad bought a camper than came with a binder holding all the paperwork you could ever want for the camper and that got the whole thing started.

  122. This could have been said and I missed it but have you tried tape under your labels? I do this for almost everything such as file folders (work and home) file boxes and holder for my scrapbook papers. Put a peice of scotch tape down fist and smoth out you won't even see it then apply your label. This makes it so they can be removed without ruining what they are on and the labels can be reused as the sticky is arill like new. It works great as I rearrange my papers so I can just move the labels with the papers. At work I use them for client files and when done I pull off and the file is like new to use again.

    1. You can if you have a photo editing software. Think of these files as photos, you can type on top of them using a text tool in photoshop, indesign, word etc. However they are not like microsoft word documents that you can fully edit. Editable files have a tendency to not pull up correctly on everyone's computers so I used PDF.

  129. For those who would like to type on PDF files, it is possible if you use PDF X-Change Viewer as your PDF software - the typewriter tool will allow you to position your cursor and type, and you can change fonts and sizes for your typewritten text. Once in a while the program acts up, and I un-install and re-install it. You can find it at download.com.

  150. I really really love the idea of being this organized, unfortunately I didn't completely understand your post as much as I wish to. Maybe because this items for organization are not presently available to me. What are your suggestions if I were to create an organizer of this nature on my own? Your response will be terribly appreciated. Bless you.

  151. It's tax preparation time and today I was trying to organize mine using the workbook our accounting gives to us..I spend about 2-3 hrs. and still don't know where to put some of the documents...I know she will be able to pick out each category in a few minutes but I wanted to save her time and effort.
    Are those Martha Stewart 3 ring notebooks/vingers that you are using? I love her organizational products. Do you mind sharing what font or letter style you use on the dividers? Example: Bills, Charitable donations, Medical bills, etc?
