Planner and HMB in one Part 1

Here I am! Twice in one week, I know! I'm amazed too!

Shannon recently created a planner for me that I love. I gave you a sneak peek in my calendar post. When she made my planner, she made it full size. When I started putting it together, I realized I needed to combine my planner and my home management binder. Many of the things in my home management binder were things I wanted to have with me.

First I had to pick a binder. I wanted something that would not be a pain to carry in my gigantic purse. I decided to go with a FiveStar flex binder. (Like this) I happened to have one at home. I am not in love with the color, but it was free, so I'm going with it for now.

The first thing I added was an old school pencil bag. I needed a place for my markers, sticky notes, ruler and other things. I got this one at Target, I think, on clearance about 2 years ago.

It also already had dividers in it, the perfect amount in fact. And they have pockets, which I love.

I have 5 sections, plus some plain notebook paper in the back. My sections aren't labeled yet because I am not 100% committed to this binder. However, they are my planner, budget information, workout calendar, meal planning, and cleaning and organizing.

Over the next couple of weeks I will show you what I have in each of my sections and how I use my planner.

It is still a work in progress and I am constantly re-evaluating. I have plans for creating a vinyl label with our family name, fun washi labels for my dividers, and using my daily agenda.
