After closing on our new home, our builder and his wife gave us a big bucket full of house warming goodies (paper towels, hardwood floor cleaner, night lights, 3M picture hangers, etc.) along with the most clever gift… a binder of user manuals, builder/supplier company contact information, and a list of how to’s (how to properly care for and maintain granite and hardwood floors). Genius!! Why didn’t I think of this before?! It’s the perfect way to store the many user manuals that come with new appliances.
Over the past two years, we have updated our interior paint color. No more guessing what color it was, it’s all written down in the binder. We’ve looked up the contact info for additional hardwood flooring and pricing on a wet bar cabinetry for the basement. No more seemlessly searching for a long lost manual, company name, or contact information.. It’s all right here. All things related to our home, are right here. How much easier can it get? I just can’t express how nice it is to have everything organized and tucked away in a familiar place.
To this day, when we purchase an item that I think I may need to keep the manual for, I just place it right inside the binder!
I’m all about simplicity and organization.
Organization = less stress = happy, happy, HAPPY!
