I recently wrote a piece about my increased worry since becoming a mother. Along with this generalized worry came the fear of how my family would manage if I died. Somehow, a spreadsheet of our monthly expenses snowballed into an entire binder on how I run the household behind the scenes.
Because let’s face it, Moms are typically the “default parent” and carry the mental load.
But what if I were gone?
I’ve included a simple template for my binder. It goes as follows:
First Things First – The Important First Calls
Now, down to business…
A List of Accounts Linked To My Email Address
Spreadsheet Of Monthly Bills With Due Dates
Car Loans/Vehicle Taxes
Contact for our CPA

I can see him rolling his eyes at me now for thinking to write this down, but I guarantee he doesn’t remember these things. So you’re welcome.
I am sure I am missing some things. Through the course of writing this post, I came up with a few other minor things. I added a list of who I typically send school photos to, and how I have the hand-me-downs organized for our younger daughter. So in writing this handy guide for you, I actually helped myself with my own binder!
