PART 2: The Household Management Notebook

*This product is PDF only.

  • Cover Pages- The cover sheet can be placed on the front of your binder. I use a binder with a clear front pocket, but you can also laminate and tape or glue the cover to a binder without a pocket. There are also cover pages for each section.
  • Monthly Calendar- This page can be used for any month of the year. Just print it out and fill it in.
  • Daily Routine- This daily routine is split into three sections…morning, afternoon, and evening. There are no specific times on this routine, because routines + rhythms are not the same as a rigid schedule. With this layout, you can adjust your tasks as things come up without feeling like you have ruined your day.
  • To-Do List- You have certain things that you have to accomplish each day and you probably have a running list of those tasks in your mind. That’s what this sheet is for!
  • Weekly Chores- It is so easy to forget about the chores that are not completed every day. When we do remember we often feel like we just do not have time to do them. That is where this list comes in. There is a section to write specific chores for each day of the week. This pack includes a blank Weekly Chore list that you can fill in with your own chores and tasks as well as a Weekly Chore list that is already pre-filled with tasks. Choose which one works best for you!
  • Monthly Chores- This pack includes 2 Monthly Chore Lists. One is blank for you to fill in with your own monthly chores and tasks and another that is already pre-filled with tasks. Choose which list works best for you!
  • Seasonal Chores- Use this sheet to keep track of the chores/tasks that only need to be completed seasonally.
  • Chore Chart- Fill this chore chart in with your child’s name and their daily chores. Give them a check mark or a sticker under each day that they complete.
  • Home Projects- It is a good idea to keep a running list of homestead projects, home repairs, homeschool project ideas, etc. You don’t want these items cluttering up your daily to-do list when you know that they won’t be completed for another month or more so use this sheet to keep them separate.
  • Seasonal Projects- Projects that need to be completed during a specific season go on this list.
  • Household Maintenance- When you make repairs, complete routine maintenance, or have any other work done on your home you can list it here.
  • Household Inventory- List your valuable items on this sheet. This is helpful in case of a fire, flooding, or any other type of disaster that could lead to an insurance claim.

  • Weekly Meal Plan-Use this sheet to plan your family’s meals throughout the week. 
  • Grocery List- Laminate this grocery list and use a dry erase marker so you don’t have to reprint it each time you need to grocery shop.  Jot down food or household items that you are running low on throughout each week.
  • Recipe Cards- Write your favorite recipes out on these recipe cards.
  • Favorite Family Meals- List your family’s favorite meals for an easy-access master list that will make meal planning a breeze.

PART 3: The Simplified Homeschool Planner

*This product is PDF only.

The All-In-One Homeschool Planner includes 14 pages to help you simply and efficiently plan & track your homeschool year! Everything from your curriculum choices to weekly lesson plans to doctor visits and community service hours are covered in this planner!

  • The Homeschool Planner Cover PageThis cover sheet goes on the front of my homeschool binder. I use a binder with a clear front pocket, but if you have one without this pocket you can tape the laminated cover to the front.
  • The Monthly CalendarThis calendar will work for any month in any year. Just fill in the dates and you are good to go! Laminate it and use a dry erase marker or print a new one for each month.
  • The Semester Learning PlanThe Learning Plan has columns for each subject, the title of the curriculum used, and the total number of lessons within the course. I like to divide the number of lessons by the number of days that we plan to study each subject to be sure that we will be able to complete the course within our school year.
  • The Homeschool Goal SheetEach month I set new goals for our homeschool on the Monthly Goals sheet. These goals could be academic (i.e. Child’s name should read # of books per month) or mental and emotional (i.e. Show more patience and grace when teaching math).
  • The Weekly Lesson PlansThe Weekly Lesson Plan sheet in this homeschool planner is where I write down what we plan to accomplish on each day for each subject. As we finish a lesson, I check it or mark it off of the sheet so I have a visual of where we are for the day and for the week. There are two different lesson plan formats so you can choose which one works best for your homeschool.
  • The Homeschool To-Do ListUse this sheet to keep track of everything that you need to do for your homeschool. Projects to prep for, lesson plans to create, etc. You can laminate this to reuse or reprint it each time you need a new one.
  • The Student Attendance LogI keep an attendance log for each day that we do school work, go on field trips, or do community service work. This page has numbers 1-31 with a star beside each number. Check, cross-out, or fill in the stars next to the dates that you “did school” You can print one for each month or print one and laminate it to reuse for each month. I print a new  one for each month so that I can keep them for my records.
  • The Grade SheetUse this sheet to keep track of your child’s grades. This is very useful if you are required to turn in detailed grades at the end of each semester.
  • The Reading LogWe are working hard to increase the number of books we read in our household. To help with this, I keep up with each completed book in this reading log (one per reading-aged child). When it is filled up, the kids get a special treat to celebrate!
  • The Community Service LogThe Community Service Log Sheet contains all volunteer work completed by the school age kiddos. This is helpful if you have a community service requirement or if you just want to keep track for your older children’s resumes.
  • The Field Trip LogAnytime we go on a field trip, vacation, or complete community service work I write down the date, where we went, what we did, and what the educational purpose was for our records.
  • The Extracurricular Activity LogSometimes I feel a little overwhelmed by our extracurricular activities so I created a form to help me keep track. Soccer, Piano, Baseball, 4-H, Trail Life, etc. We only do one extracurricular activity per child per season right now, but we still have a lot going on with three kiddos involved so this sheet is definitely a sanity saver.
  • The Doctor Visit LogOur family doesn’t visit the doctor often, but when we do I forget which kid had what within three months. The doctor visit form helps me to keep track of any illnesses and medications that my kids have throughout the year without having to keep a mental file.
  • The Safety Drill LogIt is ALWAYS a great idea to practice safety drills (fire, tornado, earthquake, etc) with your kids. I use the Safety Lessons and Drills Form so I can easily see when we are due for a refresher.
  • The Homeschool Expense SheetTrack all of your homeschool related expenses on this sheet. Anything from books to pencils to field trips!
  • The Curriculum Resale SheetIf you resell your books when your family is finished with them, you can use this sheet to record what price you are selling them for.

What are People Saying About The Simplified Homeschool Planner?

I love what I’m seeing!

I think you have just what would be needed for a well rounded year of records. I love all of the different pages that most other planners don’t have, like drills, curriculum resale, goals, and the reading list! I would recommend to any mom who is looking to be organized, but doesn’t want to be overwhelmed with her organizational material! Just the right amount of help without the fluff!
Aubrey Doyle
Customer/Reviewer

I love the simplicity of this homeschool planner!

I cannot tell you the number of times I have bought a planner to use for our homeschool lessons and not even use half or more of it. It includes all the important stuff to keep records of without all the fluff. The variety of record pages come in really handy because they help me keep better records for different activities and trips we do that pertain to homeschooling. It is so easy to write in the dates as you go along instead of having predated planning pages that may get off track as the year goes on. I also really like the finance section because you can easily keep track of how much you spend on curriculum and how much you can resell it for later.

FAQ

Not usually, but occasionally I will make simple custom orders. You can always feel free to message me with requests to see if it is something I can work in.

All you need to do is print out the sheets (one-sided OR front-and-back), hole punch them (or use sheet protectors), and stick them in a binder! You can even laminate the sheets and use a dry erase marker if you wish.

Currently, no… But I am working on some possible solutions for that 🙂

Don’t spend another year scribbling notes in a notebook that you will lose before tax time!

Start planning and recording TODAY to seeing growth and improvement in your homestead season to season.

Who Am I to Talk to You About Homestead & Household Planning?

Image of Jessica Quinn from Mama on the Homestead

Hey, there!

I’m Jess and I was once a miserable homesteader & homemaker.

I worked really hard, but didn’t have a steady focus to work toward.

I also never knew if I was making progress on my goals because #1 I hadn’t set any goals and #2 I wasn’t keeping track of my progress.

When I took the time to look at WHY I was failing, I realized that the issue was in my lack of planning and record keeping.

When I started gardening, I threw seeds or transplants out all willy nilly with no real rhyme or reason.

I couldn’t remember which animals had been treated for what illnesses or when each female was due to have babies.

There was also no budget for the homestead cash flow. It just went in and out with no intention.

I FINALLY got sick and tired of wasting my money and time on this unorganized and very vague “system” of mine. That’s when I created the planners inside The Homestead Mama Planning Pack. I have updated and improved the planner over the years and I LOVE that I now get to share it with you!

A Little Recap…

The Homestead Mama Planning Pack is PERFECT for the homesteader, homemaker, and homeschooler who loves pen + paper record keeping and wants to increase productivity & simplicity year after year!

With the purchase of The Homestead Mama Planning Pack you will receive:

It’s time to stop wasting your money, time, & efforts living life unintentionally.
