What Should I Record In My Homestead Journal Or Binder?

If you’re like me and you love keeping track of your rural hobbies and life, then a homestead journal or binder can be the answer to all your record keeping dreams!

There are so many cool things to keep track of in one place, from the plants in your garden to chores you’ve completed – if you want to stay organized, this is the way to go.

For example, if a family member has taken over one of your gardening tasks you could write down in your binder that they took over planting tomatoes for the summer. You can also itemize what kind of household projects were worked on throughout the seasons – whether it’s minor repairs or building a chicken coop.

Jotting down memories like harvesting an abundance of vegetables or accomplishments such as canning summer fruits can make it more enjoyable when you look back at your notes. Having a homestead journal or binder is really an incredible and fun way to remember different experiences while living off the land!

In addition to keeping track of great memories, however, a good homestead binder will also help you stay on top of all your projects.

If your homestead is anything like mine, you are probably in the middle of about 2 dozen projects at any given time. This is a lot for anybody to handle or keep track of.

And a great homesteading binder will help!

Keep track of past, present, and future projects.

Make lists of needed materials, potential budgets and expenses, and all of your successes and failures to date.

Map out your garden and detail what plants you are planting and when each plant needs to be started.

Keep track of your animals including health history, lineage, and diets.

There is really no limit to what you can keep in your homestead binder! If it will make your life easier, then by all means, add it!
