Free Customizable Half-Sheet Household Management Planners

Money Saving Mom@ Free Household Management Printables

After many requests, we’ve re-vamped some of our free customizable household management organizational pages to fit a half-sized planner or notebook. We’ve put together a free download package of half-sheet planners which includes:

  1. Daily Docket
  2. Daily Cleaning List
  3. Monthly/Semi-Annual Cleaning List
  4. One-Week Menu Planner
  5. Seven-Day Menu Planner

For more information on how I use these sheets to keep my life and home organized and better manage my time, check out my Time Management 101 series or my free Time Management 101 ebook.

How to use the half-sheet planners

  1. Download the Half-Sheet Planner here (6 pages, 1.4MB pdf)
  2. Open the file in a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader, which you can download for free.
  3. Use your TAB key to tab through the customizable fields of each form. Each form has numerous fields in which you can enter your own information.
  4. Click on the section(s) you’d like to fill in.
  5. Type in your text.
  6. Print out the document when you’re done typing in your text. You’ll need to cut each sheet in half and properly holepunch it to use it in a half-sheet planner.
  7. Save your document if you’d like to save your changes. You’ll be able to open the document again to add different text at any time.

A big thanks to Joy from FiveJ’s for helping me put this together for you all!

Free ebook: Time Management 101


In the past year, I’ve received numerous emails from women begging me for my “secrets” to time management. They ask me to please share how I manage to seemingly “do it all”.

Every time I get an email like that, I wish I could invite the woman to my home. Because seriously, I think it’s easy to make bloggers out to be someone they are not when you’re basing all your conclusions of them upon the little sliver of their life that they share on their blog.

I know, because I’ve been guilty of it myself. I’ll read a woman’s blog, see the pictures and ideas she shares and begin to wonder if really and truly she might be superwoman’s clone. And I feel badly because I don’t measure up in any stretch of the imagination to this blogger. When in reality, I know good and well that every single woman has their strengths and weaknesses and no one has it all together.

–from the first chapter of Time Management 101

Thanks to the help of the wonderful Money Saving Mom® team, I’m excited to bring you a brand-new downloadable ebook, Time Management 101.

This 66-page ebook is a revised and edited compilation of my Time Management 101 series.

I hope it will be an encouragement to many of you! And if you know of someone you think it might be a blessing to, feel free to share the link or print out a copy and give it to them.

It’s in an easy-to-read, downloadable format. Just fill out the form below and you’ll get a copy in your email soon!
