Alhamdulillah, whilst running a home certainly is not rocket science, being organised can make doing so a lot more efficient and easier....especially for those of us who have home-schooling thrown into the mix!
In my own desperate attempts at improving my own home management skills, I discovered the world of binder printables! Some of you may already be familiar with these, especially if you are over in the USA because it seems to be something quite popular across the Atlantic!
Upon further research, I've noticed that many productive people, often have some kind of planning method in place to help organise their thoughts and time. It of course doesn't have to take the form of a fancy binder, however, if you are looking to have something which would help to inspire and keep you working towards goals and use time more productively inshaAllah, then a management binder may help.
When using a binder, bare in mind that what you write down is not written in stone! Some days things may come up which is not on your plan....so go with it and don't panic! The idea is just to help general productivity, and "brain-dump" all your to-dos onto paper so that you don't have to keep thinking about them!
Even if you only achieve 80% of things from your planning 80% of the time....you'll see a huge improvement in your productivity and time-management inshaAllah! (well, that's my theory anyway!)
So here is my version.... something I put together to help mentally organise to-dos, including home-school and blog planning printables.
I've uploaded each of the binder elements separately, to make it easier for you to download what you need if you don't need all the printables included.
Look out for future posts where I will share how I use this binder inshaAllah.
Happy organising akhwaat! (smile)
I highly recommend getting the Better Binder from Staples....they come in a wide range of colours and have a protective pouch on the front to allow you to insert your own cover as well as an insert for the spine. (they are cheaper online than in the store though...we showed in store the online price and they matched it Alhamdulillah, or you can just order online and get delivered free to pick up from the store).
Amazingly cute!! Thank you so much!!ReplyDelete
Alhamdulillah all good is from Allah.Delete
May Allah reward for putting together this wonderful blogReplyDelete
This is sooooo awesome!! Jazakillahu khayrun, ukhti. I just discovered your site yesterday, and I spent hours browsing page after page, and subhanAllah I totally crashed my browser from all the tabs open from your blog! Haha! You have a wonderful thing going on here and I pray I can achieve what you have inshaAllah. I intend to homeschool my son next year inshaAllah, he will be in Kindergarten (dunno what you gues call it in Europe) but I'm nervous. Even though I was homeschooled myself as a teen but it was so different because we were so independent as students. May Allah make it easy on us. I'm so stoked after looking through a few other Muslimah home schooling sites! I'm so excited~ReplyDelete
This is very helpful and I was so happy to find an Islamic site concerning homeschooling.ReplyDelete
