So yesterday I mentioned that I’m going to be putting together my own housekeeping card file. Since I have so many irons in the fire I’m going to go about this slowly.
About the Housekeeping Card File System:
You may have heard about this way of setting up your household system from the SideTracked Home Executives. I first read about in an old Emilie Barnes book but later read the SideTracked Home Executives version too. I tend to gravitate to Emilie Barnes stuff because of her views on making the homemaking process a beautiful one. Things are decorated and made to be attractive not just serviceable and that is how I feel about my Housekeeping Card File.
Yes I could do this in a day with the cards I have on hand and the plastic index card box I already have.
I’m one of those that believe that housekeeeping and homemaking comes easier when it’s done with beauty and grace.
I do not want to just slap something together. It will need to be cute and appeal to me to make me want to open it each day.
I have a few of the items needed to put my file together at home. And of course the computer. But I won’t head out to the craft store until tomorrow (Wednesday is library and errands day). This is going to take me a little while and maybe even a few mishaps. So until then I will give you some eye candy of chore housekeeping index card files (I really don’t know what to call them at this point) around the web.
