This free printable home management binder has beautiful printable pages to help organize many areas of your life, from goal setting to cleaning schedules to home maintenance to meal planning to kids and pets and more!
When you’re a kid, they never tell you how many details you have to keep track of as an adult. From maintaining the home to feeding everyone in the household to managing kids and pets, it can all get a bit overwhelming. And if you’re like us, you’ll take any help you can get!
We’ve been using home management binder printables to help keep our home and life organized for more than a decade now. And we’re thrilled to be able to share these printables that have helped save our sanity with you as well.
What Is a Home Binder?
A home binder is an organized file of paperwork– often housed in a three-ring binder– that acts as central location for all of our most important details and information.
Rather than having to search around the house or in a messy filing cabinet whenever we need to access pertinent info, our home management binder organizes everything for us in one place so we can always find it quickly and easily.
Why a Home Management Binder Is Helpful
Our home management binder gives us peace of mind. We have all of our information organized and written down so we know where to find important details at all times.
A home binder can also help us plan ahead. We can stay on top of things like gift giving, meal planning, car maintenance, doctor visits, and more so we never miss an important event or checkup.
An organized home binder acts as our second brain. We don’t have to worry about remembering every single date, deadline, and detail in our heads because all of those pieces of information are conveniently stored in our binder.
Home Binder Supplies
Before we jump into the details of what’s all included in our free printable home management binder, we wanted to make sure we shared the tools and supplies we use to put together our own home binder.

Ready to take a peek at everything that’s included in our free printable home management binder? Let’s take a look!
Free Printable Binder Covers
No organized binder would be complete without a pretty printable cover… But what’s better than one pretty printable binder? Two pretty printable binders!
Our entire home binder comes in two fun color schemes– a pink and purple scheme and a blue and green scheme– so you can choose the one that best fits your home, personality, or mood! (Or change it up and use pages from both!)
Throughout this post, we will be showing various printables in only one of the color schemes, but note that when you request your free printable home management binder, you will automatically receive each printable in both color schemes!
Goals and Habits Printables
The first section of the organized home binder is our goals and habits section. We are big believers in setting goals because we truly believe they work, so we have provided several options for goal setting in this part of the binder.
For each binder section, we have a printable section cover so you can keep your binder neat, tidy, and organized.
Set Yearly Goals by Category
The first type of goal setting printable included in the home management binder is a yearly goal setting sheet organized by category.
We’ve included sheets with headings for many of the most common goal categories. But we’ve also given you a blank sheet where you can create your own categories as well.
Definitely don’t feel like you have to set goals in every single category. In fact, we wouldn’t recommend it, simply because it is hard to truly focus on that many goals at once. But thinking about our goals for the year in terms of category can really help us to prioritize and focus on what’s most important.
Break Down Big Goals
The most effective way to achieve big goals is to break them down into smaller action steps. Our next goal setting printable will help you do just that!
We can’t just set a goal and hope it will work itself out. We have to have a plan for getting there. This printable helps us create a plan, set a deadline, and give ourselves some accountability so we can crush even our biggest goals!
Set Goals as a Family
Along with individual goals, the organized home binder also has sheets for creating goals as a family. We’ve tried to help get the brainstorming started by providing different categories for organizing your family goals.
Again, don’t feel like you need to set goals in every area. Maybe choose one or two categories to work on t first. Then when you have completed those, choose a different category to tackle.
Free Printable Habit Tracker
Habits are incredibly effective for helping us to achieve our goals and maintain our progress long-term. This habit tracker printable can help us work on things like:
- Drinking enough water
- Getting enough sleep
- Working out consistently
- Spending time reading each day
- Daily prayer or meditation time
- Taking medications consistently
- And more!
There is just something so satisfying about checking items off when we’ve completed them, so this tracking sheet can be motivating no matter what habit we’re trying to build into our day.
Daily Routines Printable
Routines are also important for helping us stay on track with our goals. Both kids and adults can use this daily routines printable to establish morning, afternoon, and evening routines. Checking off the boxes is satisfying and keeps us accountable for completing our tasks.
If you don’t want to print a new routines printable each week, consider laminating this page and using a wet erase marker to check off your daily tasks. Then simply erase it at the end of the week and start with a clean slate on Monday.
Events and Gifting Printables
The next section of our binder is for events and gifting! These printables will help us keep track of all of the important people and events in our lives so we’re never late with cards or gifts again.
Like every section of the home management binder, this one starts with a pretty cover page…
Yearly Special Events Printable
We can keep track of all of our yearly recurring events in one place with this simple birthday calendar printable. Use it to note birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and any other important days you’d like to remember.
Each month has a set of shorter lines to write the day the event occurs and then a longer line to note the name of the person or event to be celebrated on that day.
Free Printable Gift List
It can be tricky to keep track of all of the people in our lives for whom we want to buy birthday gifts, holiday gifts, shower gifts, and more.
These simple gift list sheets allow us to list all of our gifting info in one place. Set a budget, brainstorm for ideas, and remind yourself to buy and wrap each gift on time.
Event Planning Printable
Birthday parties, work events, and even simple gatherings of friends can end up having a lot of little details, and this page helps us to manage them all!
Plan the menu and activities, keep track of the schedule, manage decorations, and more on this one pretty printable event planning page.
Home and Car Care Printables
There is a lot of work that goes into caring for our homes and vehicles, so we wanted to make sure we included a section of the binder just for that!
Along with the pretty section covers, the home and car care section includes…
Free Printable Cleaning Schedule
It can be tricky to remember what we need to clean when, so this cleaning checklist printable helps us create and stick to a set cleaning plan!
With room to map out cleaning tasks we want to complete daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annually, our homes will be looking spick and span in no time!
Not sure how often to clean each area? This simple graphic from Good Housekeeping can help.
Decluttering can feel overwhelming, but we’ve found that it helps to break down the project into smaller pieces. This decluttering checklist is broken down by room and then lists categories to declutter in each space. There is space in each room’s checklist to add your own categories that may be unique to your home.
Home Maintenance Log
Along with cleaning and decluttering, there are many areas of our home that need consistent maintenance. Think: changing air filters, cleaning out the gutters, checking smoke alarms, etc.
These printables help us break down our home maintenance tasks in a few different ways. The first page helps us log items that need to be done on a recurring basis, whether that’s monthly, quarterly, twice per year, or yearly. The second page helps us keep track of more seasonal items and allows us to assign tasks on a month-by-month basis.
Feel free to use one page or both, depending on your needs!
Room Decor Information Sheet
As we work on decorating our homes, it’s helpful to have a room decor reference sheet for each space where we can note measurements, paint colors, finishes, and other details. That way when we’re shopping for new items for our space, we know exactly what size, shape, and color we need!
The top part of this printable has room to sketch out the room and list out the measurements of the space. And the bottom part has lines for listing various notes and details.
Free Printable Password Log
There is nothing more frustrating than being locked out of a website because we can’t remember our password. This password sheet eliminates that problem by keeping all of our login info in one spot. Just be sure to keep it somewhere that prying eyes won’t be able to access it.
Vehicle Maintenance Log
It can be hard to remember when we last serviced our vehicles, but these vehicle maintenance log sheets can help! With a pre-filled option and a blank option to fill in yourself, it’s easy to keep track of car maintenance all in one spot. (And the next owners of your vehicle will thank you for keeping such good notes too!)
Food and Meal Planning Printables
We’re always going to need to eat, and this section of printables helps keeps our kitchen, food, and meals organized!
After the cover page, we have…
Kitchen Inventory Printables
Never run out of ingredients again! These refrigerator, pantry, and freezer inventory printables are especially helpful if you’re a bulk buyer and always want to know how much you have of each item.
These would be another great candidate for lamination so you can easily update quantities with a wet erase marker as they change.
Favorite Meal Ideas Printable
It’s always helpful to meal plan before we shop, and the favorite meal ideas printable makes it oh-so-easy! Keep track of your favorite meal ideas in each category so you can quickly reference this sheet and plan meals while you’re making your grocery list.
Weekly Meal Plan Printable
And speaking of meal planning, let everyone in the household know what the plan is for each meal by posting this sheet where they all can see it easily.
There will be no surprises at meal time, and people can even pitch in to help since they know what needs to be made for each meal.
Holiday Meal Plan
If you’ve hosted holidays at your house, you know how stressful it can be to make sure you have all of the dishes and ingredients you need! Get organized well ahead of time with this simple holiday meal planning printable. You can even make your shopping list right on the same page!
Free Printable Grocery List
And for those weekly or biweekly grocery trips, this organized grocery list can help. It’s broken down by areas of the store so we’re not constantly trekking back and forth between aisles because we forgot something.
There’s space at the bottom to meal plan so you know exactly what ingredients to add to your list.
Kids Information Printables
We can’t forget about the kiddos! (And we’ll let you in on a secret– all of the printables in this section can actually be used for adults as well.)
Choose from the pink/purple or blue/green cover and then snag these cute printables too…
Free Printable Chore Charts
We love lists around here because they’re such a great way to keep track of everything we need to accomplish in our days! We created these chore charts with kids in mind, but we know that adults like to check items off their list too, so feel free to use them for list-makers of any age.
As with a few of the printables mentioned above, we like to laminate these and use a wet eraser to write on them so we can continue to use the same chore chart page each week.
Babysitter Information Sheet
If you’re leaving the kids with a sitter for date night or another special event, this babysitting information sheet will make sure they have all of the details they need while you’re away.
Make notes about everything from food to routines to important contact info, all on one page.
Doctor Visit Printable
Keeping track of our health history can be helpful for seeing trends and diagnosing issues. It’s also helpful to keep a log of doctor’s visits so we can remember details and instructions that are easily forgettable after we leave the office.
Again, this printable was first created with kids in mind, but it would definitely work for adults as well.
Free Printable Vaccination Record
Similarly, the vaccination record is helpful to have, particularly when we’re filling out paperwork and it’s asking for dates of last immunizations.
This printable is in the kids section just because they’re typically getting vaccinations more often, but it could easily be used for adults too.
Pets Information Printables
Last but not least, we have a pet information section! Couldn’t forget about our furry (or feathered!) friends!
After the cover page, we have…
Pet Sitter Information Sheet
When leaving a pet, it’s helpful for the sitter to have all of their pertinent information in one spot, and this printable can help with that.
Leave contact info, vet info, and details about their food and routine so there will be no questions about the best way to care for the pet.
Vet Visit Printable
It’s helpful to have a medical history for our pets as well. This page can help keep track of all of their vet visits so you don’t have to try to remember dates, illnesses, diagnoses, and medications all in your head.
Free Printable Pet Vaccination Record
And finally, the pet vaccination record can help us ensure that our animals are on track and up to date with all of their shots.
