Daily Planner Binder

Let’s face it, not every one organizes their day the same way so daily planners are something that are best made to suit individual’s needs. While the store bought ones might be perfect for you, additions and alterations might be better for someone else. Plus, these are supposed to make your life easier and more organized right? With that said, here are some printables that we created that may or may not be right for you. But they are free so might as well try them out!  This planner binder is small so the print outs are made to fit the 8.5″ x 5.5″ binders or Junior binders as we like to call them. The Junior binders are great because they can fit easily in your purse or bag without taking up too much room. I used the Raw binder for this project but we also have the Junior view binders in black, white, and fashion colors so you can customize the front if you want. […]

Plus FREE printables!! […]

Garden Binder

I made a raised garden bed this year and decided to try and plant a few things. Last year, I just bought the tomato plant that was already grown which was a big step for me. I kept it alive until the first Texas freeze. SO, not knowing anything about gardening I thought it might be a good idea to keep track of my first experience. That way IF everything goes according to plan, I can be prepared for next year and hopefully plant more. Here are two different ways you can keep track of your seeds and/or your notes. Supplies: Seed packets Tape Blank paper Sheet Protectors Business Card Holders Raw Binder   […]
