I'm starting on building my own Home Control Journal, which is basically a 3 ring binder filled with the in's and out's of our home: schedules, chore charts, budget, reading lists, menu planning, etc. I have a decent system going now, but it's scattered. I'm now putting together all the scattered pieces into an organized binder for easy reference. It's terribly basic as it's mostly just print-outs and whatnot. I hope to get it looking pretty and organized with tabs, folders, and pics. When I do, I'll be sure and post pics!
