Keep Your Household Reference Binder Current

posted by Aby Garvey 2 Comments

If you’re using a home reference binder system, the change of seasons is a great time to go through and purge / update your information. Clear out last year’s school schedules, phone directories, and curriculum information, and replace it with this year’s info. Keeping your information updated as you go will make it a breeze to get your hands on what you need right when you need it (without paper piling up on you!)

    I recently downloaded the Command Central Binder project and have begun collecting the necessary supplies. Any suggestions on the best ways to organize the various sections (the order of them, which sections need pockets, etc.)? Thank you!

    Hi, Ellen,

    I would let your own papers guide these decisions. For example, I would put the paper that you access the most often in the front of the binder so it’s easier to get to. Another idea would be to put the categories in alphabetical order. As for pockets, I use those for bulkier items or things that will only be in the binder for a short while and that I don’t want to take the time to punch holes in.
