Organizing Our Home

so, it is no secret that there is a wedding being planned over here-and we could not be any more excited! but, you all know that with a wedding comes a lot of merging of accounts, name changing, financial re-planning, etc. 

John and I have decided to start getting a bit of a head start on all of this as we are also really saving up to buy a house in the near future. 

I am all about organization so, I have come up with a home system of sorts that works for us. 

 planner: erin condren//binder:office max

first thing is first, our weekly planner. we have decided to leave the binder on the counter near the main door of the house so that it is easily accessible. This will be what the binder will be left open to, our weekly planner. This is great as we have an area to write down any meetings/dinners/plans, make  a to-do list, and get a little motivation. 

behind the weekly planner is a blog planner, for me. 

next up, our weekly meal and work out planner. 

here comes the financial part of things, our monthly budget form


a monthly check list of all the bills we need to pay and when

a password log

and finally, a quick go to list of our bank account info. 


For us, this is the easiest way to go about doing things and ensuring that they get done. 

How do you organize?

  4. I didn't have a wedding planner and I should have made myself write down everything because it got stressful!

  8. I love the thought of organizing but I don't always keep up with it. But this looks fantastic! I also love the meal plan/health page, I may have to try that out myself :)
