Back to School Boot Camp: Home Management Printables

We start back up with school in one week, so I’m putting myself through a “Back to School Boot Camp” to get organized and on track before we resume our studies! If I don’t get organized now, it’s definitely going to be harder after school begins, so now is the time to set schedules, make lists, and stick to a plan!

I always think planning is more fun when it involves cute lists and schedules, so I’m loving the Home Management Printables from Clean Mama Printables that are on sale over at Educents right now!

First of all – do you know about Educents?! It’s a new thing for me, but it’s kind of like the Groupon or Zulily of the education world. You’ll find curriculum and school supplies and books and everything education-related under the sun! Each deal is only for a limited time and is generally 30% off or more from the regular price.

Now, about these Home Management Printables. I know there are lots of options like this out there, so let me tell you some things to love about this particular set…

Home Management Printables

*The Cleaning Kit section includes great ideas for weekly cleaning, once a week cleaning, monthly cleaning, and seasonal cleaning! This isn’t just a place to record what you are doing, but also get ideas for a great cleaning schedule to stay on top of the whole house!

*The Menu Planning Kit portion features weekly and monthly planner sheets, but what I really is love is the inventory checklists for the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. I tend to forget what I have tucked away here and there and end up buying more when I didn’t really need more! The inventory sheets are really helpful to use up what you already have when planning your menu!

*I don’t handle the bills in our household because my husband is amazing at math and budgets and all that {and because he knows my forgetful tendencies too well}, but even the Budget and Bill Pay section of this kit gets me a little excited! You can track receipts, bills to be paid, payments toward debt, and much more with these financial printables.

*My kids love checklists and we all get more done when everything is written on a list! I think it’s the motivation of checking everything off – who doesn’t love that? In the Dockets and Calendars section, you’ll find cute checklists and daily schedules to keep everybody on track and on the same page.

*In addition to everything I’ve already mentioned, there are many more pages to get you organized in the Busy Mom Kit such as…

  • In Case of Emergency
  • Family Medical Information
  • Appliance & Automobile Maintenance Records
  • Insurance Policies

*AND the colors are super fun. I’m such a girl, but I just love the bright colors and coordination of all the different sheets in the pack!

The regular price for this whole set is $40, but through July 31st, you can get everything for just $24 over at Educents!

True confession: I tend to shy away from buying printable packs because once you buy it, you also have to pay to print it. BUT, there are a few money-saving options that make this kind of pack work for me!

The first way to save money is to print the pack and either laminate the pages or put them in a binder with sleeve protectors. Using a dry-erase marker will make these pages ones you can use over and over again without wasting printer ink.

The second is a new favorite discovery to me. Using an app called Notability, I can use these “printables” without ever printing them! Notability allows me to write on the pages with a stylus on my iPad. No printing, no papers to keep organized, and it is always with me! To read more about how to use Notability, please check Amanda’s tutorial – she explains it way better than I ever could!

Don’t miss out on this deal – get it before it expires July 31st!

What kind of forms or lists are essential for planning in your home? Do you use paper or technology to keep you organized?

I received these printables in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way for this post, and all opinions are 100% my own!

  1. It feels like summer just started. I can’t believe it’s time for school already. Yet we’re sending our oldest off to first grade next month. I love having lists to check off for getting things done. even though hubby is a computer guy it’s more satisfying to physically check something off.
