I know how busy you are.
This lifestyle that we chose can sometimes be downright chaotic. Even if your homestead is a rather small one, even at times when there are no animals to take care of but just a garden, a house, and a few kids, even then, I often felt like there are too many things for me to remember, plan and manage.
If to be perfectly honest, I am not a big fan of recording and planning. I tried it, and every time I thought to myself… instead of sitting here planning what our menu is going to be or what I will plant in the garden, I can just be out there doing the cooking or the gardening, doesn’t that makes more sense?
It might seem like it makes more sense, but the truth is good management makes you much much more productive in the long run. Productivity, is the name of the game.
When I finally came to peace with that, I created a pack of homestead printables to help me keep track, plan, record, and manage my homestead better.
I would like to share this printable pack with you.
You will find four sections in this PDF.
An animal section where you can record the care of your animals (like when you dewormed the goats or dogs), an egg-laying chart, milk production chart and more.
A kitchen section where you can plan your menu, create a shopping list, plan your preserving and canning for the year, and keep track of what’s in your pantry and freezer.
A to-do section where you can plan a yearly master list of homestead projects, decide on weekly assignments and create and plan your budget (super important!). In this section, you will also find calendar pages you can use for better time management.
And last but not least is a garden section. Here you will find charts of vegetable spacing and times of planting, a garden journal, seed ordering sheet, seed starting sheet and more.
This is a FREE gift from me to you! My hope is that it will make managing your homestead much simpler and even enjoyable. Most of all, I am sure it will help you manage your time much better so you can be a lot more productive.
