Creatively Re-Purposing Packaging Materials

The idea of repurposing packaging material certainly did not originate with me but when I first read about it, I thought it was fabulous!  Since that time, I have been on the lookout for such packaging to modify for my planner.

Last weekend I bought a small package of magnetic bookmarks that just happened to be the right size for my 8.5 x 5.5 planner.  The bookmarks were slipped inside soft plastic, and it would make a great pocket to slip something inside, such as a task list.

I attached some post it notes to mine, punched the holes and put it in the front of my dashboard.  I use the small post-its for meal planning and most recently to track chores that do not need to be scheduled on a regular basis.  Well, I guess I should say that I know that I am not going to schedule them on a regular basis.

I simply write the chores on a small post it note and line them up on my planner page (see image).  When one has been completed, I remove the chore and put it on the other side of the page in the order they were completed.  After they are all completed, I'll flip the page and start all over (which reminds me, this page needs to be punched on the right side as well.
