So my fiance’s cousin bought a house for him and his fiance recently. She was showed me a binder that the previous owners gave them that had everything she could ever need!! This binder is a place that you can keep all of your owners manuels, warrentys, and things like that. EVERYTHING IN ONE PLACE!! When you move into a new house you never dream of having that stuff, so it was wonderful for them. But I decided that if I start now I’ll have all of the things I need in one place and I can collect them as I get them. It’s pretty easy to do; just get a binder, some tabs, page protectors, and your done!
I made the cover with word. I just used a template that word already had, and ended up using the photo that they had because I liked it, even though it may not be perfect. It’s simple, but it works. Eventually I’d love to have a photo of our house (once we buy one) with us 🙂
My tabs are Appliances, Furniture, Electronics, Permanent Fixtures, and Other. Since I am using sheet protectors, the tabs would not come out farther than the protectors. I learned a trick from my mom; you can cut a little slit in a protector, and slip the page with the tab inside. It seriously works like a charm!! It’s hard to see in the photo, but all of the tab pages are in protectors.
