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
