I have this obsession with agendas and organisers especially the ones with pretty patterns and colours. I used to have multiple notebooks for personal, work and blogging which I am at the point of consolidating all into one organiser. It is kinda ridiculous to carry 3 notebooks in one handbag no?
I tried to search online for an organiser which can meet my new organiser requirement ( #firstworldproblem). Then I discovered the Erin Condren Life Planner which I almost purchased but got a little shock with the shipping cost to Australia. I was a little disappointed but the silver lining was the motivation to create my own organiser instead.
It started from buying a two-D-ring A5 binder from Officeworks, a packed of 5 J Burrows coloured dividers as well as J Burrows notepad inserts. I was having problem of finding a dated planner that will fit the two ring A5 sized binder. So this had really prompted me to search online for free dated planner printables. Finally, I have found THE ONE from http://www.4hb.com. What I liked about this one was it was two A5s templates set on an A4 sheet which was a life saver especially when my local Officeworks does not print in A5. :/ Another plus was A5 papers are quite expensive as compared to A4 papers so it worked out to be cheaper to print two A5s on an A4 sheet and simply cut it in half. I have to cut mine with a pair of scissors but I think you can go to Officeworks to have it done for you.
Now let the fun part begin
I have always wanted to take meal planning more seriously and I started to think about the layout the meal planning list as well as the corresponding grocery list that will work for me. As my beloved and I really enjoy having packed lunch, I have incorporated a Lunch column onto my meal planning list. This is to ensure I could inject some varieties to my packed lunch rather than just leftovers from the night before. As for the grocery list, I have arranged into different food categories based on the order of the supermarket sections from the entrance of major supermarket chain in Australia.
Who would have known that I can ramble about a homemade organiser at this length? Oopsie! I better stop typing so that you can get on with your life.
But before you go, I’d love to share these printables with you and I hope you will benefit from them as much as I do! #sharingiscaring
