Decluttering challengeOr better yet, remove things you no longer need so there’s less to clean around the house. Taking on a 30-day decluttering challenge will help you purge the unnecessary from your home. (via @the.bullet.journey)
House projects and home maintenance
Projects for the homeThis visual spread is separated by area of the home. In each section, tasks for what to clean out and touch up to spruce up the place are logged in bullet point fashion. (via @mebeleen)
House and car maintenanceTo keep track of the last time you did things to make sure you’re changing used, dirty things out regularly, create a spread to mark when you did it so you don’t forget. (via Pin image)
I actually thought about whether this would be more appropriate as a bullet journal food spread, but it’s actually suitable here because there are other common household supplies for the home like toilet paper and soap. (via Christina 77 Star)
One of my favorite ways to make sure that I get my household items automatically without my having to think about it is with Amazon’s Subscribe and Save* program. You get rewarded with a cheaper price if you set your order to be auto-filled every month. Less work AND saving money, uhh, heck yeah!
Home ownership or rental
House hunting questions to askWhere you decide to situate yourself is a big deal. Mark down a list of questions to ask when you’re out searching for your next place so you have your big concerns answered before you pick your home. (via @the.purple.journal)
House hunting trackerYou’ll also want to keep a log of the places you’ve looked at so you can compare and make a final decision. Mark the address, how much the place is going to cost you, additional notes about the place (eg. close to work, kitchen needs an upgrade, etc). (via The Petite Planner)
Buying a home is a huge step. Use your bullet journal to track the financial part of it. Before you get your place, you could set up savings goals. After you get your place, break down your mortgage or rent, costs to renovate, repair, or add furniture and home décor.
It’s easier to tackle all your home costs if you spread it out over time than one lump sum. (via @craftyenginerd)
Moving timelineMake moving less stressful and overwhelming by preparing in advance for it. Creating a moving timeline gives you a more detailed sense of when you need to complete your tasks. (via Pin source)
Furniture dimensionsTo make sure that your current furniture will fit in your new space, log measurements. No sense in lugging a huge piece that won’t end up in your home due to space limitations. (via @girlmeetsbujo)
Before and after moving listDon’t forget the things to do after you move into your new home! (via @the.petite.planner)
