Keepers At Home Organizer
Kunker Hill Publications
I finally found an organizer that I like and meets my needs. After using it for a while, I ordered one for my daughter too. The "Keepers At Home" Organizer is designed and published by Michelle Autry, Kunker Hill Publications. The organizer comes in a 3-ring-binder with section dividers and many pages of calendars and forms.

I like the fact that it comes in a standard 3-ring-binder, because I can remove the sections that I'm not using and add forms and sections that I already use and like. The freedom to personalize the organizer is very beneficial. I've added my budget information and bill paying checklist.

There are instructions on how to use each section of the binder. Refills are available for $22.50 and includes all the sheets that aren't intended to be used as masters and copied.

What you will find in the organizer:

A Monthly & Weekly Calendar - Specialized to the need of the Mother at home. It can be started at any time of any year. Using the annual calendar provided, you fill in the months and days. There is an area in each Month's Calendar for the following:
