People Are RAVING About The Streamlined Home Binder!
As a spouse to a disabled combat veteran, I’m always managing all things for my husband and our household, so your help and guidance is a godsend. I’ve already printed out and started assembling my streamlined home binder and I love it. It’s so useful, well thought out, and it’s just awesome. Thank you!

But before all that, I was what you'd call a hot mess. With two kids under 2 years old (one with major medical issues) and suffering from autoimmune disease that would knock me flat, I knew I had to streamline my life because I was absolutely drowning and could not catch up. Slowly but surely, I created timesaving systems to make our life easier. I figured out a way to create a 'time snowball' where time grows exponentially as you streamline each household task. Now when life's bumps happen (as they tend to do), we have a safety net that cushions us with spare time, finances, and everything from emergency supplies to finding essential information instantly to having easy meals at our fingertips.
My mission is to help other moms embrace progress not perfection and build their own 'time snowball' so they can get back to doing more of what they love.
No, this is a digital file (in .pdf format) that will be delivered to you immediately! Then you will print at home and put into your own binder. It includes 66 pages, including a cover, tabs, and section dividers as well as instructions for implementing the printables.
That's the beautiful thing, this system CREATES more time! Don't let the number of printables overwhelm you. You probably don’t need all of them right now. This is like a buffet. Don’t overstuff yourself, only use the parts that will serve you and your life now. You can always come back for more.
You probably could, but that would be overwhelming and take hours upon hours to find what you need (and a LOT of what you don't.) Then you'll have a hodgepodge of mis-matched printables that weren't designed to go together. Instead, this is a system that tells you what to fill out, and in which order, and builds upon itself as it grows your free time.
Oh yes! But first you need to collect what's needed before transferring it online. That's why we provide tips for using your Smartphone and apps for going digital after collecting what's needed if you wish. However, some things are better on paper like figuring out a daily cleaning schedule, information sheets for babysitters and pet sitters, home paint color logs, note pages for journaling, checklists for brain dumps, and so much more. Plus, having a central binder that ANYONE in your family can reference (especially in an emergency) is priceless.
It’s important to remember why you need this binder. How will you feel when you have more free time and your home is more organized? When it feels overwhelming or if you’re putting off making time to work on the printables, remember how you will feel once you start getting through the stacks and streamlining your home. You may even wish to skip ahead to the Travel and Hobbies stack and remember what you’ll do with all your free time. Then get to work so you can feel that way sooner rather than later!
And so much more!
I have successfully used your moving printables 9 times! I was terrified moving across the country thinking I'd forget important documents or lose boxes, but your moving guides really saved the day and all my moves. So just a big thank you for helping my brain out.
Your planners have helped me keep my to-do's in order and all my reminders get remembered!
Love your blog and the resources you share with us! I'm using the decluttering checklist at the moment and it has been life changing (no joke!)
