Organization Aids

This page on my website contains organization aids, several of which are spreadsheets, that I’ve tried and tested. If they can make my life easier, I thought they might do the same for yours.

Please enjoy these but also let me know if you’d make changes. I’m always open to making improvements and as more people use these, we can all benefit from your suggestions.

Grocery List Template

If you’re looking for an easy (and consistent) way to create your grocery shopping list, here’s a template you can use. This has made a huge difference in the efficiency of our grocery shopping.

Simply update it to fit your needs, print it each time you need it, and highlight the items you need to buy. You can easily update it as time goes on with additional items.

The template has two sheets in it. The first is by type of product. The second is by location. Clearly, the location template would need to be tailored to your own grocery store. You could even update it to include multiple stores, if you’re accustomed to shopping not only at your local grocery store but also Costco or Trader Joe’s, for example.

The key is, it’s very easy to make it fit each person’s individual needs. Download to Excel (or load into Google Sheets) and fire away.

As always, let me know if you have suggestions for improvements.

Personal Information Binder

There are three documents related to this. I created an eBook to walk you through each section of the binder, explaining how I would use it.

Included here are the eBook and the section pages. If you click on the name of the document, you can preview it. Click on the Download button to create a copy for yourself.

I am unable to load the Word document for creating the binder content, so if you’re interested in using it, please contact me and I’ll be happy to send it to you.

This document is probably the most important one, as it will save you the most time when completing your own binder.  If you don’t have Word, you can also use the free alternative – Google Docs – which works very much like Word.

I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but at this time it’s beyond my control.

I recommend printing the section pages on card stock so they’re sturdy. I also added simple tabs to mine to make it easier to find each section. See my post – Creating a Personal Information Binder – for more information.
