    Do you mean like a price notebook? There has been several threads on this topic in the recent past. But one thing I did learn from the past discussions was about using Splash Shopper software for your PDA. Now I go paperless grocery shopping! I never forget to get anything, I know exactly how much stuff costs (and can change easily in my PDA), then go home and sync to my computer and I'm done! The $30 for the purchase is well worth it!

    put one together but so far the only that I have in the book are recipes.

    I follow the flylady plan and have a control journal that is similar to a

    household notebook.

    For each one of your kids have a page with all their friends phone

    numbers, addresses, parents names and phone numbers, and email

    address. This makes it so much easier for those minor emergencies.



    Also a page with the phone numbers of their schools, activities and

    tutors/teachers.



    A medical information page is nice. Put vaccination info, any

    prescription drugs taken (and reactions) and a list of diseases that

    they have had (and when).

    I just attending a workshop on this at a homeschool fair. I'm excited

    and I'm about to set mine up. Here are some bullet points from the workshop



    Use a 3" ring binder (sturdy it will get used a LOT!)

    divide the binder with numbered index tabs

    Have the Table of Contents as the first page listing what each index

    number corresponds to

    Under the tabs - some examples



    **Schedule info - not a calendar but any paper related to a calendar

    item. Directions to a party, the original sports calendar handed out at

    practice, e-tickets to a concert or flight etc. (3 hole punch these

    items and file them in this section)



    **Family info - birthdays, anniversaries, chore charts,



    **Husband info - work address phone, personal info, insurance info, Rx

    dosage and mg, frequent flier/guest info, etc.



    **Pets - vet schedule, vet info, boarding info, med schedule, name,

    description, good clear picture (should they become lost)



    **Church info - nursery volunteer schedule, committee list, class

    rosters, committee info, etc.



    **House info - Appliance manuals, warranties, repair records, paint

    chips/numbers/colour swatch, fabric swatches,



    **Car Info - title copy, maintenance records, make, model, year info,

    mechanic/shop contacts, tag, emissions receipts (or copies),



    **Activities - (this might have sub-tabs like the 5 subject tabs we used

    in school) scouts, sports teams, drama club info, co-op rules, rosters,

    rules, resources (if a team mom or leader)



    **Planning - project central. Planning a party? garage sale? trip?

    renovation? redecoration? This can be the project management office.



    **Pending response - file e-receipts here until item is received,

    correspondence you need to keep up with, follow through on, anything

    that needs to be looked at again.



    **Kid info - again sub tabs can be used here - either by child or item

    or both - put in medical and dental records, shot record, activities,

    insurance info, driving laws, college info, testing, dr. results,

    medical reports, etc.



    **School info -

    *for homeschoolers - keep your declaration of intent and attendance

    records here, state HS laws, county BOE contact numbers and address,

    membership info, child sections - schedule, lesson plans, yearly goals,

    high school timeline, test scores from previous school years, list of

    touch points for each age to make sure you're on track,

    *for public schoolers - have school phone numbers, address,

    teachers names, schedule, bus schedule number, foul weather info where

    to listen look for closings...etc,



    **TnT menus + grocery lists - a weeks worth of menus and the

    corresponding shopping list for when you are too busy to whip up a menu

    for the week. The presented suggested having the shopping list in a

    sheet protector to take to the store with you, save havig to copy it

    over. Also put in local take-away menus



    **Looking to buy items - planned purchases, things you are saving up for

    - have product reviews, sale fliers, vacation brochures, curriculum

    handouts, etc.



    **Gift registry - just a simple list of who you gave what previously.

    In case you have 10 of the same thing in your gift closet so you don't

    give it to your niece or nephew for birthday AND Christmas.



    **Encouragement - notes, cards, letters, pictures that have touched you

    and give you lift on a bad day.



    **Directories - team rosters, scout directories, church and/or

    neighborhood directory, etc. are given to you at the start of each

    season/year.



    **Biz cards - get the 8.5 x 11 biz card holder sheets and put any and

    all biz cards in it - even if you didn't like the vendor. If you didn't

    like the vendor put a big red X on the card to remind you of this fact.

    Write on the back why you did or didn't like the vendor or simply note

    what this particular company/doctor does/is. (Some company names aren't

    immediately clear what they are)



    Now, since this is *your* system, set it up the way that makes sense to

    you. This is just a guide to how someone else set theirs up. You can

    add or remove sections to your heart's content as often or seldom as you

    like. But hopefully this will help you get your started.



    Good luck!!

    Out of curiosity I found the download site where you can now get the

    program for Windows only if you want. I downloaded the free 30 day

    trial to see if I like it well enough to keep it for Windows and/or

    my PDA.



    Love the original prices associated with the program...bananas .79 a

    unit?? Does this mean ONE banana or one pound?? Either way it gave

    me a giggle. )

    Bananas are sold by the pound, so the unit would be pounds. This

    allows them to use the term "unit" instead of case, 6-pack, pound, or item.

    OMG! I just started one, and it has been a lifesaver already. I

    don't have children, so mine is essentially all about me. LOL!

    Anyway, I have a tab for a "to do" list, another tab for grocery

    lists and coupons. I also have tabs for my debt payment schedule and

    pending bills to pay, a calander and a few other odds and ends. I

    have lists of important phone numbers divided between business and

    personal. I put a little pocket in there too for stamps, address

    labels, pens, pencil, etc. I have everything I would need in it, so

    that no matter where I am, if I have my notebook I can take care of

    anything. It's been fabulous because instead of trying to keep up

    with several post-it notes, I just have the one notebook with

    everything in it. The biggest thing is to just use what you have

    around your house for it. Don't buy anything special. It doesn't

    have to be perfect...just functional. It's much better that way

    trust me.

    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">I have a three-ring notebook with tabs in it. I saw that someone mentioned the numbered tabs but I use the ones that you can write on.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">My categories are....
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Family Info - a page on each member of the family that lists current medications (my husband has heart problems and I need this a lot); doctor information; medical history and such. In the case of my daughter, there are notes in there about when she needs to go back for immunization boosters, copies of her medical forms to play soccer, etc.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Pet information - name, address and phone number of the vet, shot records, when they were spayed/neutered, what kind of flea medication they use, etc.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Phone numbers - that's divided into two sub categories. One isfor friends and family. I have the name, address, phone number, email address and any other important info about our friends (kids names, ages and birthdates, anniversary, etc). The other sub category is business. I have anyone we regularly do business with here - the bank, the credit union where we have our auto loan, our mortgage company, our credit card, insurance.... I have the name, address, phone number, fax number, who our contact person is and the account number. If we had some sort of emergency where we had to leave the house quickly, I feel better knowing I could just grab this and have everything I need at my fingertips.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Home & Auto - contains our home maintenance records, paint colors for each room, purchase information for the major appliances (I keep the manuals stored in a separate three-ring binder). The auto section is pretty much the same - maintenance records and such. I also have a "wish section" for my house and my car - just things I'd like to buy "someday." I tear out pictures from magazines, write down internet addresses, price and whatever else I think I might need.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Inventory - I have an over-all home inventory; an inventory of books, DVDs, CDs and computer programs. It was a pain getting it together, but it's super easy to update now. And, if I ever have a claim with my homeowner insurance, it's all right there.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Food & Shopping - grocery list, my menu plan for the next two weeks, favorite recipes, pantry & freezer inventory. I started a price book in there, too, but with the way prices are going crazy, I couldn't keep up.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Cleaning & Chores- my daily and monthly chore charts
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Goals & Planning - This is where I keep track of all our "hopes and dreams." Right now, we're saving for a vacation to DisneyLand - I have all the planning for that in this section. Hubby and I also wrote a "bucket list" of sorts. We check it periodically and try to do those things.
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">
    <DIV style="FONT-FAMILY: Comic Sans MS;"><FONT face="Arial" size="3">Hope that helps you get started. Let me know if you have any questions!
