How do you manage your household appliance manuals and warranty information? Personally, my system was a total hot mess. Frankly, the system consisted of all of the manuals and warranties stuff into a grocery store plastic bag.
When I began this project, I had a plastic bag full of stuff. There were manuals and warranties associated with appliances that have since gone on to appliance heaven and are no longer in the house. I even have a manual for an appliance that I gifted someone else in 2000. Wow, I am a manual hoarder. 🙂
I decided I could eliminate over half of the stuff/manuals in this plastic bag…and I was right. As I purged the old and outdated manuals and warranty information.
- Large Ring Binder (4in or better depending on the number of manuals) Free
- Sheet Document Protectors $13.79
- Time (1.5 hours) Priceless
- I began by starting with a purge, all of the manuals and warranties that were outdated were trashed
- I then sorted the ones that were left by room as close as I could
- Kitchen appliances
- Entertainment appliances (phones, DVDs, TVs, etc.
- Small Appliances (vacuums, steamers, etc.)
- In order to save on space and document protectors, I added two per protector back-to-back
- Just for fun, I printed a page for the front of the binder
Viola, an organized household binder for appliance manuals and warranties. I like having everything in the same place and more important is knowing everything in the binder is relevant.
What do you think, is this a viable option for other household important papers such as passports, marriage licenses, birth certificates, etc.? What do you think?
The good thing is the price. As always, I love the projects that organize our lives but cost little. This one fits the bill as it came in for a whopping, $13.79. Not bad huh?
