Binder with Plastic Pockets
This is one of my planner iterations. This one uses page protectors as the 'tickler' and schedule in one. I bought a box of 50 Avery protectors (this is Classic size) and tabbed them with ordinary self-stick tabs.
I've got the 43 folders needed for the tickler plus seven more as 'projects' and 'in'. Not all of them are in use at the moment.
This photo shows the binder open to one of the project pages. I've got a Classic size project form in the pocket along with some 3x5 cards I'd taken some notes on. One card shows signs of becoming a 'snap-in' card, with holes and notches.
I like color, so I use it in the paper. Yellow paper for project pocket labels, neon 3x5 cards for important or urgent stuff.
