After making my editorial calendar
, I got to thinking that I should make myself a planner as well. I’m currently not using one, but I really ought to, especially since I keep confusing weekends/dates and what not. My dry erase calendar in the kitchen can only help so much. I also wasn’t in the market to purchase a 60+ dollar daily planner/binder. Well, I’m a designer, so why not just make my own?!
I got the binder from Staples, it’s Martha Stewart, along with the divider tabs as well. All the pages are printed on card stock paper so that even if I write in pen it won’t bleed through or anything. It also makes the pages more durable. I divided the binder into five parts: Addresses, months, budget, blog, and design.
Each month is divided into a calendar section, which is followed by a day-to-day breakdown and a nice little inspirational quote and image at the end! (images all made by me and what not!)
This is just what I needed to keep myself organized, start a budget, and keep all my work in one place that is easy to tote around if needed! I’m really loving this!
Do you have a favorite way to organize your life?
