Does this sound familiar…
You wake up in the morning and immediately start cleaning, cooking, wiping noses, dressing people, teaching, chauffeuring, planning, and the list goes on and on and on. You feel like you just can’t get a handle on your days. There is so much to do and not enough time to do it all.
I GET IT BECAUSE I’VE BEEN THERE, MAMA!
As a mother of four wild and spirited kiddos, I have found myself in the midst of chaos on more days than I would like to admit.
I have been guilty of forgetting what day it is, skipping meetings, and not starting my slow cooker dinner until 4 PM (late dinners are acceptable, right?).
My household management skills were falling through the cracks. All of this happened because my mama brain would get overloaded with all of the things that I needed to be filed away in my already overfilled brain.
What if I told you that you can keep your home in working order without losing your mind??
Well, my friend, that’s exactly what I am telling you!
Allow me to introduce The Household Management Notebook.
The Household Management Notebook will help you to take care of your daily household cleaning duties, routines and rhythms, grocery shopping, and meal planning!
This resource has been tailored to work for busy mamas who just do not have the time and mental capacity to keep up with everything without a little help!

With The Household Management Notebook you will:

Here is EXACTLY What You Will Find Inside The Household Management Notebook:
*This product is PDF only.
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: Cleaning, Maintenance, Kitchen, and Finances.
THE CALENDAR PAGE
This page can be used for any month of the year. Just print it out and fill it in.
THE 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.
THE 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!
| CLEANING |
THE WEEKLY CHORE LIST
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. For example, on Monday I clean out my car as well as the oven and microwave. Tuesdays are for weeding the garden and cleaning the garage, porch, and patio. This really helps me to keep the bigger tasks in check.
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!
THE MONTHLY CHORE LIST
I said that it was easy to forget about the chores that aren’t completed on a daily basis, so how much more difficult is it to remember the ones that are only completed monthly or even yearly?? You guessed it, I have a list for that.
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!
THE SEASONAL CHORES
Use this sheet to keep track of the chores/tasks that only need to be completed seasonally.
THE 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.
| MAINTENANCE |
THE 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.
THE SEASONAL PROJECTS
Projects that need to be completed during a specific season go on this list.
THE HOUSEHOLD MAINTENANCE LOG
When you make repairs, complete routine maintenance, or have any other work done on your home you can list it here.
THE HOUSEHOLD INVENTORY LOG
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.
THE SERVICE CONTACTS
Keep track of your service contacts (cleaning service, utility companies, etc.) on this sheet.
| KITCHEN |
THE WEEKLY MEAL PLAN
Use this sheet to plan your family’s meals throughout the week.
THE 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. When grocery shopping day rolls around, your list will be ready to go.
THE RECIPE CARDS
Write your favorite recipes out on these recipe cards.
THE FAVORITE FAMILY MEALS
List your family’s favorite meals for an easy-access master list that will make meal planning a breeze.

Who Am I to Talk to You About Household Management?
I’m Jess and I was once an extremely overwhelmed homemaking mama.
I couldn’t breathe most days. It felt as if I was drowning even before I got out of bed. This led to me not getting out of bed many days and eventually needing depression medication to be able to function.
When I took the time to look at my responsibilities in details and be intentional about planning my time, my stress was significantly reduced and I was able to actually enjoy my family.
That’s why I am so thrilled to share my Household Management Notebook with you! I want you to find the same relief that I was able to find!
Don’t let another day go by without intentional household management & planning!
