A few years ago I discovered an "Agile Household" board on the Trello Inspiration page, created by Brian Cervino and Jessica Webb. I decided to copy the template board and started using it with my husband.
This has kept us on track and organized in everything from house maintenance and renovations, to decorating, warranties, insurance, cleaning, groceries, Max's vet visits, annual doctor and dentist appointments, vehicle maintenance, emergency kit contents, things to remember, and everything in between.
As an example, we keep track of our grass cutting, snow removal and house cleaning services. How often they come, contact information, payment method etc.
We also have a "completed items" list of all the activities on the board we finished to look back at our progress. It is very convenient to have paint colours, room measurements, and decor ideas for purchase that are easily accessible when we are shopping.
We even keep track of the plants we purchase in the summer, so if we like the ones we got that year it is easier to go back to the greenhouse and pick a few of the same ones when you know the names, and also keeps you from buying ones that didn't bloom the way you wanted, or if we want to change it up we can ensure we buy different ones from those on the list.
This board has been a game changer for us, everything "household related" organized and accessible at our fingertips. Grateful for this template board, as I may never have thought to create one on my own set up this way.
I would love to hear if others have been using this template board, and any tweaks you made to adapt it to your family's needs.
