A clever way to organize your user manuals

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.   img_2944.jpg

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!

  1. Good idea! We are closing on a home next week and this reminds me that we need to ask for any manuals they may have. Thanks. We seem to have a lot in common. I’m just the older version. I started in the sonography field at close to the beginning, the days of B-mode and the first real time machines. My career unfortunately ended when I had a near fatal car accident in 2004. At the time I was a Professor of Physics and Clinical Coordinator for a program in Western Kentucky. I try to stay up to date about the ultrasound world though. I like your style aesthetic and I wish I had you to help with my closet!

    1. Ha! Thanks for reaching out to me and sharing your story! Glad my post was a helpful reminder and good luck with the new home! I would love to help with your closet! Give me a cc and I’ll give you the closet of your dreams! 😉
