I can’t believe it’s almost 2018! This year has gone way to fast. I’m stopping by to show you how I plan to get organized this New Year!
Each year I love the thought of having a planner and use it for a couple weeks and then it get put aside and never used. This year my goal is to get SUPER organized and use it all year to prep and prepare for my newest addition in April and prep for the year with school and personal goals.
I was interested in the Create Planners from Michael’s but had already purchased one from TJ Maxx that I really like the lay out for..I was getting discouraged because the Michael’s planners can easily be added to and I didn’t *think* mine could be since it was a metal bound but..
TA-DA!! Introducing the We R Memory Keepers Punch Board!!! (see picture below)
The punch board kit comes with several different punchers that you place in the hole punch board and you can create your own slide in pages! It was at Michael’s for $39.99, but I used a 50% coupon and paid $20 for it. It does take some trial and error which I recommend using a practice paper for. But it’s a very easy machine to use and can be used for many years and different planner types.
One of my goals is to blog more which is why I created a blog post idea sheet. This will help me collect my thoughts and create a timeline of when to post about them. These sheets were laminated and then I used my punch board (it punched right through the laminating sheets!!) to punch them before placing in my planner.
Once I finished punching the holes, I placed them at the front of my planner where I can easily access them each day. Below is a picture of my planner and how I placed the sheets into the front of my planner.
I hope this gives you inspiration to get organized this New Year! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Organizing!
