Organize Your Life - Create A Home Management Binder With Free Printables

I created and shared my first home management binder over 6 years ago and it was a total game changer. To this date, it is still one of the most popular posts on my blog. However, I decided it was time for an updated version. I wanted to use similar colors so that you can mix and match these printables with some of my old organizing printables
I am considering creating a simpler black and white version and would love to hear your thoughts on that? Do you like the colorful printables or would you prefer to save on printer ink and decorate your own pages? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

First time making a planner? Scroll to the end of this post where I've included some amazon links to some of my favorite diy planner products.

Check out my old planner tab post to see how I laminated the tabs to make them stronger. Also, once they are laminated you can label them with permanent marker. If you need to change the labels later, dip a cotton swab in nail polish remover and use it to wipe of the permanent marker. That way you can reuse them over and over again!

I am working on a few different cover page designs. I will be posting them soon so be sure to keep an eye out for them. 

This page may not be necessary if you plan on keeping you binder at home but if you ever take it on the go, this page could be a life saver.

This daily planner page is the same as the one above but the to do lists have been replaced with time slots for a more structured schedule.

I always receive so many comments about my password log page. Mostly they are comments letting me know what a terrible idea it is to keep my passwords in a binder (what if a thief breaks into my home?!!) and informing me that there are secure apps I can download that are much safer to keep track of passwords. 
I hear about computers being hacked all the time. I personally have had my computer hacked a few times. How many times have I had someone break into my home? NONE!! In a perfect world we would all be able to remember every single password we've ever used but since that's not normally the case then do what makes you feel comfortable. 

Ok, question time!! 
Do you use the 8.5 x 11 pages in your planner or would you love to see these printables come in a half size version? 
What are your thoughts on color vs black and white printables?
I would love to hear your ideas in the comments below.

  1. ALL off your site is wonderful. And yes, me personally, I would love to see the printables in a half page size to fit into a Franklin Planner Classic size notebook. THANK YOU for all your hard work!

    1. Thank you so much! Hopefully I will have time in 2020 to get some half size printables.

  2. Is there an easy way to print them out in "A6" size, so that they fit into my new filofax in personal size? Your design is adorable!

    1. Anon, unfortunatly I don't have any A6 size printables but I did find the following link that may help. It looks like if you scale the images to 44% in your printers setting then they should be able to fit in your personal planner. Hope this helps.

    2. I just noticed that my printer has an A6 option under the "paper size" drop down menu. Make sure you scale the image to "Fit to page" then you can place A6 size paper in you printer and print like normal.

  3. I LOVE the colors! B&W might be a good option for some people who don't use much colored ink and don't want to use that much, but please don't get rid of the colors completely. They're beautiful!

    I'm fine with the full page, I can scale down to what I need. I use a Happy Planner, which is somewhere in between a half and full size paper (about 82% of full size). Scaling down is easier for me than scaling up. :^) If you do have a half sheet, please keep the full sheet option.

    1. Thank you, cspokey! So happy to hear that you enjoy the printables. If/when I do make a black and white or half sized version, I will definitely keep the colored and full size options available.

  4. To comment on the passwords page, you can still write them down but write in code. That may not help you if you're constantly using different passwords, but my far more organized than me husband has a password code system that he writes things down in. For example, let's say you use your pet's name as a password (obviously totally making this up), combined with your college and the year you graduated. If your pet's name is Spot and you graduated from Harvard in 2020, instead of writing SpotHarvard2020, you can write "PetCollegeYear" and just write words to trigger your memory. Obviously what you choose wouldn't be as obvious to someone with ill intentions..... Just a thought.


I read and appreciate each and every comment from my sincere readers, however, DIYHSH is a place for inspiration not drama. Any comments that I believe to be inappropriate, malicious or spam like will be deleted.
