Here it is:
Fancy, ey? Just keeping it real! Go ahead and make yours cuter (anything’s cuter). We keep this in a cabinet above the computer desk in our kitchen, so it’s easily accessible.
Inside the front cover I keep Boxtops For Education and the sheets our school wants them turned in on.
Before the first tab I also have a school calendar (we’re on year ’round and I can NEVER keep straight what days my kids are supposed to be there) and a ward (church) telephone list. You might want to put a family phone list or emergency contact numbers or something like that.
Next we have a divider tab for every member of the family. The boys are there, the page protectors just block the view.
In each section I keep things that are child (or parent) specific. For example, BC’s tab has phone lists he needs for church and meeting schedules. My tab has things like my book club reading schedule. Macy’s has her violin receipt (we can switch sizes for a $30 fee…provided we can find the receipt) and piano and orchestra information. She also has a schedule of her church activities. My older 2 have lunch money deposit slips in theirs as well as sports schedules, in season. Campbell’s has his preschool carpool calendar and preschool policies and procedures.
In the back pocket, I have some basic first aid information. This might also be a good place to put Poison Control’s number and things like that.
So, that’s our family binder. I’d love to hear any other ideas you have or things that you think would be good to include!
Next up? My calendars.
