31 Days of Home Management Binder Printables: Day #31 Section Dividers

Welcome to Day 31 of our series on building your Home Management Binder.

I can hardly believe it is the last day of our 31 Day series!  When I originally decided to do this series, I knew it would be a lot of work during a very busy month for me, but I didn’t realize how many of you were going to jump on board and build your binders with me!  I have had so much fun reading through all the sweet comments and hearing stories of how my printables have helped you.  I had no idea what a wonderful experience this would be, so thank you all!

Before I decided to go forward with this project, I made sure that I had at least 31 ideas for binder printables.  Throughout the month as I’ve been making them, I realized that I have a bunch more that won’t fit within our “31 Days”.  So…

Over the next few weeks and months, I will be occasionally posting new printables for your binder!

At this time, I’m unable to offer personalized printables for free, but I definitely welcome your suggestions.

For the last day of our series, I made section dividers to help you organize your binder.  There are quite a few of them, so check back tomorrow to see how I put my binder together.

  1. Meredith says

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do these for all of us. I love all of them and plan to try and start using them more regularly.

  2. Maureen says

    Thank you so much for your willingness to share your forms and organization tips. I have known for a long time that I needed to be better organized and have tried here and there to set up a binder. What a blessed encouragement this has been. My adult daughter and I will be working on setting up the binder for our home and tasks together so that we can both benefit.

    • says

      You’re welcome, Maureen! I’m glad to hear that you will be working on your binder with your daughter. That will be so fun. My eldest daughter is really organized, and I love working on projects with her, too! Have fun filling it out. :)

  3. sal4gal says

    I can’t thank you enough for so gracefully sharing your printables! They take so much time for you to create and I love the clean format. Thanks again!

    • says

      Thank you, Tara! I’m glad you like them. It makes it worth the hard work when I know my readers appreciate my effort, so thanks for letting me know. :)

  4. says

    Oh my – I can’t believe that it’s already over. Every day I was excited to see what printable you had for us! I can hardly believe that this is the last day! But I look forward to any new printables you will blog about! Thanks for your tips and ideas….I LOVE them!

    • says

      Thanks, Sarah! I can hardly believe it’s the last day, too! When I thought of posting every day for 31 days when I usually only post 2-3 times per week, I thought it would be a huge challenge. But, it went so fast and I had so much fun! I’m glad you are enjoying my site. Thanks for your sweet comment. :)

  5. says

    I can’t thank you enough for all the work you have put into these. They are awesome and I am planning to use them and my binder to finally get organized once and for all.


  6. JulieBee in Iowa says

    Thank you for making the dividers! It will make it so much easier to find what I’m looking for. You have provided so many useful pages for the household notebook! I don’t have school-age children anymore, but I just might make a notebook for someone who does. You are so kind to share all of this with us. Thank you Ginny. :)

  7. Rebecca says

    I am so thankful you did this! I found quite a few pages that will be so helpful! I wonder though, if there is a way for you (or me?) to make the pages fillable? I like to keep my pages nice and neat, which my handwriting is not, so I’d kinda like to type stuff into them on the computer before printing? Is that something that could be possible?

    • says

      Rebecca, I WISH I could make these editable for you, but the software to do that is over $500! I’m considering purchasing it, but I would have to charge for my printables in order to offset the cost. Some day, I’m hoping to offer editable printables, but I just can’t do it at this point. :)

  8. Amanda Burt says

    Thank you so much for the last 31 days. I had been using a home binder for some time but was tired of it and found that I wasn’t using it as much as before. This has re-energized me and I love all that you have done!

  9. Lisa says

    I bet everyone would paypal you a buck or two. I know i would! Thank you again for your efforts. It was greatly appreciated on this end. What a fabulous idea for the 31!

  10. Audrey Dalley says

    Thank you for making these pages available. I will be forever grateful for the freezer inventory. I have been meaning to do this for a very long time – now it is done. “oh, I will remember what this is.” Famous last words. No more food going into the abyss. Grace & peace to you.

  11. Marsha says

    Thank you so much for your time and effort. Thank you for sharing so we can all be a little more organized. Have a Great day!!!

  12. says

    Wow, Ginny! You are amazing! Thank you for all of our hard work on this series! I can only imagine all the time you put into this! I have printed the calendar and other fun printables for my home management guide that you shared with us. I can’t wait to see what else you have in store. Thanks again!!

  13. Lynn says

    Thank you Ginny for all the free printables. I have never done an organization home binder before. This is so helpful as I am having surgery next week and feel like this will help my husband to navigate better through important stuff for our family. Also, we just moved to another state and having to get all new doctors and contacts is overwhelming. So, this helps be able to store EVERYTHING in one place. Thanks again! God Bless

    • says

      Lynn, I’m so glad to hear how helpful this has been to you! I appreciate you letting me know. I pray that all goes well with your surgery!! Blessings on you. :)

  14. Kathy H says

    Ginny – just found your blog last month through Money Saving Mom. Was so excited to see your Home Management Binder series that you were sharing – have been wanting to do this for quite a while now, but didn’t quite know how to start! Thank you so much!! I appreciate so much your time & effort it took to share this! Am now hooked on your blog & look forward to it each day! Thanks again!

  15. Grace says

    Thanks so much for the wonderful printables! I’ve been faithfully downloading each one, and I know they will be of great help as I continue to organize my schedule and responsibilities.

    Also, I had subscribed to several blogs doing the 31-day challenge at the start of November. Most of them I will be unsubscribing from, but not Organizing Homelife! Thanks again for sharing your experiences and advice :)

    Like others, I am definitely looking forward to seeing any future Binder Printables!

  16. Géraldine says

    Hello. I’m french and I speak very bad english. Sorry.
    Thank you very much for this beautiful work ! Il love it. :-)
    I have 3 childrens and I have read a french book for the «home organisation». It’s around the sames headings but you are more complete. :-) I see your blog on Pinterest and Il love it ! It’s very nice. :-)
    Thank you and have a good day. :-)

  17. Trish says

    Thank you for your amazingly wonderful series! I have needed something like this as we are a very busy household, and this keeps order of everything. Are you going to post about how you organise your folder? Thank you once again for everything :)

  18. Trudi says

    This was such an awesome project. I have 5 step-daughters and they are all out of the house. Only one of them is not married and I was thinking of making up binders for each of the 4 married girls as Christmas gifts. I hope they will find them as interesting as I have.

  19. Diana says

    Hi Ginny,
    I read your blog everyday & love it! I read your post on November 5 about your much needed rest after the 31 day series & your travels. I was thrilled with all of your printables in the series ( anticipating all the new ones you’ll be adding! ) I’m just as excited over seeing how you have put your binder together! ( Aren’t we organizing women silly? We get all giddy over a binder…lol. ) Have you posted about your binder yet? I’m in no way rushing you, as all wives & mother’s need rest, especially someone with a busy schedule like yours. I just want to make sure that I haven’t missed it. Thanks for all you do to help all of us through your blog.

  20. Mimi says

    Thank you so much. I just put my binder together and now look forward to filling in the information. I am so excited to have everything all in one place.
    Just wondering, do you have a blank section divider you could share? There are a couple of additional sections I would like to add to my binder.
    I would like one named Contacts, and one named Information.

    If not, that is okay. You have done so much already.
    When I “grow up” I hope to be organized. Maybe it will happen by the time the kids move out :)
    Seriously though, you have helped so much and I feel as though I am on my way.
    Thanks again.

  21. Toni says

    I have a page suggestion. I’m always buying spices I already have. Spice cabinets are crammed full of all these spices and when I’m in a hurry, I forget to check to see if I still have whatever I need. A page, similar to the freezer ones, for spices would be great. You could list the spice, the size of the container (since they come in huge, regular, little, etc – mine are all grouped by size in the cabinet) and when you bought it.

    A pantry one could be great too. Again, like the freezer one, it would give you the opportunity to list everything you have in there. :)

  22. Katrina says

    I have used a home management binder for a couple years, but all my pages have been collected over time from different places. It was driving me crazy that they don’t match. This is PERFECT!!! Thank you so much for your time and generosity!! I will be putting these to very good use.
    One page that I was looking for though is a gift organizing page for spouse, kids, parents, inlaws and other special people. With 3 kids that information my brain could get quite scrambled.
    Thank you SO much!!!

  23. Karen J says

    Hey Ginny,
    So far I am very impressed with your organizational skills. I wish you made small day planner/binders. I am having a heck of a time finding one to fit all my needs. Any ideas on where to find one that combines workouts, food journaling appts and other day planner stuff along with notes? Or a website where I can try to create one on my own?

  24. Heather Mason says

    Hello! I adore your printables! I just have one question… For the section dividers, do you happen to have a blank one? Or one that is simply labled general? I was hoping to add a few custom categories

    Thanks! :)


    • Beka says

      I just found this today through Pinterest!!! Once I got to the dividers, I had the same question/request… a blank one would be awesome for custom made sections!

      I am definitely bookmarking your site, I’m excited to get this binder going and look at what else you have on here! Thanks so much!!!

  25. vicki tait says

    Hi Ginny. Thank you a million times and more for sharing your beautiful home management planner. Home organization is not easy for me, to say the least, but your beautiful pages are an incentive to keep chipping away at my goal. One day soon, Operation Smooth Household will be up and running! Thanks again, Ginny. Now, did someone say “Christmas Planner”?
    Big hug,

    • says

      Thanks for the sweet comment, Vicki! I hope making a binder will help get you started, just don’t overwhelm yourself. Start slowly! You can find my Christmas planning pages on my ‘free printables’ page on the menu. :)

  26. says

    Love all of these printables, thank you so much for making them available! My home management and approach to organization just took a turn in the irght direction, thanks to you!

  27. Jennifer says


    I have been using a Home Management Binder for about six months now, and am loving it! However I have been using “printables” from various websites…but I really, really like all of yours! They are simple, clean and *editable* — how very generous of you! I know it’s crazy…I like having everything matching and so I will be switching this weekend. Thank you! Blessings, Jennifer from Ontario, Canada

  28. Erin says

    Thank you for the House Hold Organization Binder Idea. My parents are getting up there and I am going to make this for my mom & Dad for a gift with most of the information filled in, that way we all know where it is and what is going on.

    Thank you again.

  29. Andrea says

    Thank you so much for taking the time to create these printables and share your tips with us! I found you (through Pinterest) after the month of October, but I read throough every blog post of this series and saved all of the worksheets. After the holidays, I will create my binders (if not before). This will be a GREAT start to helping us get organized in the new year!!

  30. Lisa says

    I have been out of school on a work related injury since August 27, 2012 and stumbled upon your blog by chance. I am so glad I did! I had the best time following you on your journey of reorganizing! I faithfully tuned in each day to see what was next on your list and was never disappointed. I have finally had a chance to download all the dividers. YOU THOUGHT OF EVERYTHING!! You have the most put together, easy to understand, complete organizer I have ever seen. And to think that you have given it to us, the unorganized masses, for FREE!!! Thank you very much for your time and dedication for this, your labor of love. I plan to do the whole series beginning January 1, 2012. Thank you again!! Lisa

    • says

      Thank you so much, Lisa, for such a thoughtful, sweet comment! I’m glad you like the printable so much. :) Enjoy putting your binder together, and I hope you recover from your injury well and soon! Take care.

  31. Lisa-Marie says

    This is absolutely anesome!!! Thank you so very much, this years is going to start with organizing your life to make things easier, thank you!!! x1000

  32. amy says

    Your printables are so incredible! Thank you for offering them for free. God has gifted you with organization! I was wondering if there is one link to download all the binder printables or if each printable needs to be downloaded separately. Thanks again.

    • says

      Thanks, Amy. I appreciate the compliment! There isn’t one link for downloading the printables, yet, but stay tuned for a big announcement coming soon. :)

  33. Alicia says

    These are great! Thank you so much for taking the time to do them :-) I was wondering of there is any other way to receive the grocery list? I no longer have Facebook and have no desire to have one…

  34. Amanda Gillespie says

    Love the binder – but what is the font that you used for the cover and dividers? (I’m creating a few of my own dividers with the blank you gave, but I want it to look consistent…)

  35. says

    I really like the binder & your site has been a big help. I’m glad I could come back & re-download these after losing our old computer. Thanks!

  36. Cindy Uecker says

    Hi there!!!! I love your printables, I have created a binder for myself as well as for my mom. I would love some sort of medication list to put in my moms binder. She takes several meds. and it can get confusing for her trying to remember if she took each one and at what time. A printable would be perfect for me to keep with mine stuff as well as hers so we both have a daily record with us for Dr. and hospital visits. I have confidence that you can come up with something creative and useful 😉 Thank you for your time

  37. kathy says

    ive always in my head desired and admired to be organized or anyone who appeared to be. Ive always wanted something like this binder, im a very visual person and this has really helped me termendiously. we homeshcool our five children and so as many can relate EVERY second does count. i have a daughter who is seven very interested in this system. (shes very neat and organized already) but i really appreciate all you have put in this for all of us who needs the help. Thankyou so much for your generosity for your organizational skills. Im diff. passing this on I have lots of friends who struggle with this as well. THANKYOU!!!!!

  38. Candice says

    Thank you so much for all the time you put in to creating these pages.

    If you don’t mind a suggestion… for those finding your site as I have after your 31 days, being over. If you could link all your down loads instead of having to click your link, to open the page and then have to open yet another page to down load. Please don’t get me wrong. It was all worth it, but very time consuming.

    Thank you again for your work.

  39. Busy Mom says

    God bless you! You are so generous to share! I have seen many websites but nothing that shares whole heartily as yours does. Big thank you from a grateful mom :)

  40. says

    Thank you so much for making such an amazing web site. I truly appreciate your work and absolutely love it all! Would you happen to have the 2013-2014 calender some place? I may just be skipping over it but I would truly love on if you have it. Thank you again for keeping this single mama ORGANIZED!

  41. Bri says

    Hello!! I came across this during my search to become more organized and I am so motivated now!! Thank you sooooo much!! I have spent the whole morning getting supplies and I am about to start working on putting everything together. I do, however, have a question. Do you by chance have a blank lable, that could be filled in with additional needs like “pets” The labels that I am referrring to are the section dividers. Let me know. I’m just so excited and want to make sure I have a section for all of my needs :)

  42. Annett says

    Vielen Dank für Ihren Planer, er ist für mich und meine Familie eine großartige Hilfe. Vielen Dank für Ihre Zeit und Großzügigkeit. Sie müssen ja viele Stunden daran gesessen haben. Dank **Chrome** kann ich Ihre Seiten ganz einfach ins Deutsche übersetzen.
    Ich schaue fast täglich vorbei. Mein Kalender ist jetzt in einem Filofax Apex A5 und auch ein paar Ihrer anderen Seiten. Viele liebe Grüße aus Deutschland / Wernigerode

  43. says

    Is there any chance to make an editable divider? I love the look of yours, but have a couple different categories I’d like to add.

    Thank you.

  44. Wendy says

    Oh my you really are a life saver! Well this a.m. I had many things to do with very good intentions but… First, I have ADD so I’m all over the place. In my head I’m going pick up the morning routine mess and then move forward but somehow I end up deep cleaning. I’m sitting down cleaning drawers out and organizing them and never get the whole minor mess completed. I’m a very visual person & you have covered everything with such detail that I’m am so excited to start this immediately. As I mentioned I’m a visual person so I have pieces of paper with about every category (to do, shop, ideas for crafts, to build and so on&on…) all over the house, vehicle & purse. See how I get off task, lol (sometimes). 2nd I’ve decided I should just admit my addiction: I’m addicted to Pintrest. My whole day has passed & time to get the children from school already but…. I found YOU!!! It’s honestly worth the time invested because I definitely know that this will be my Life’s Guide to Happiness & Actually Free Time With My Children That I’ve Been Wanting for so long but don’t get becuz I can’t get caught up cuz I can’t stay focused. See what I’m saying, lol!!! Anyway I want you to know that what you have done will give me My A Life & Time to make Memories with My Children. I could never thank you enough!!! I Wish Much Love & Happiness, Wendy

  45. Andrea says

    I really like your printables and the 31 binder section. I would like to include a few sections in my binder that you don’t have and would love my title pages to look the same. I was wondering if there were any blank title pages and what font did you use so Icould personalize this a bit more. Thanks!
