Today is a little different than the typical posts in this series. I’ve had a lot of you wanting to know how I use these printables, and so I want to share with you my favorite method for assembling and using the printables. After all, they won’t do you much good unless you use them.
Next month, I’ll be doing a in depth series showing how I set up my planner, what’s in each section, what printables I use, my planning methods, and some tutorials on how to print your pages. I will walk you through getting your planner and/or homemaking binder set up so it works for you.
If there’s anything you specifically would like to know or any tutorials you’d like to see, please let me know in the comments below, so I can consider including it in the series.
I use a disc bound system, and I absolutely love! It works so well for me. It offers the compactness of spiral binding and the flexibility of a three ring binder all in one. The best way to explain how the system works is just to show you, so I invite you to watch the very short video below to see exactly how it works:
I purchase my discbound binders from the Arc product line at Staples. (You can purchase them online if you don’t have a Staples never you.) I’ve heard that some Office Depots have their own line now, but I haven’t seen them in person. Keep in mind, when you use this system you will need a special discbound punch. I use the one from Staples. It’s not super cheap (about $45-$45 but if you watch for coupons you can get for up to 40% off), but it’s definitely worth the money! It punches both the junior and full size with a nice guide to punch the paper. The guide is also adjustable for all size in between. It will do up to 8 regular weight paper at once easily.
The index of each day can be found here as well as a link to a form where you can request to have a printable custom designed just for you!
Don’t forget to let me know in the comments below if there’s something you’d like to see me cover in the series next month about how to set up your planner.
